Let us search and try our ways, and turn again to the LORD.
Therefore say thou unto them, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Turn ye unto me, saith the LORD of hosts, and I will turn unto you, saith the LORD of hosts.
And I will give them an heart to know Me, that I am the LORD: and they shall be My people, and I will be their God: for they shall return unto Me with their whole heart.
Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and He will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.
People have so many things competing for their priorities. They have their health, jobs, finances, other people, and relationships. But these are all the things that one can see. There are so many things that cannot be seen with the human eye or experienced with human emotions that are even more so competing for people’s priorities. People don’t recognize that there are so many spiritual forces that are competing for their spirit, soul, mind, and heart. There are so many spiritual forces that are constantly competing to take people away from God.
But God is saying Return to Me, your first love. God is saying I am the most important thing in your life. I am life. Without Me, all you’re really doing is existing, you are not really living, and I want you to live.
God wants to bless you, but not with only materialistic things, which is sadly the focus of so many false preachers and teachers. God wants to bless you with His peace that surpasses all understanding. God wants to bless you with His divine love. God wants to bless you with His wisdom and discernment. God wants to bless you with His salvation and hope for eternity. God wants to bless you with His power to fend off the spiritual forces at bay for your mind, for your soul, for your heart, and spirit, by any means necessary.
God is saying Return to Me, your first love. Return to me with your whole heart. Commit your way to me. I am your first love and I desire to give you the things that money cannot buy, that bring about true peace, and divine joy and happiness. I desire to give you more of Me. God is saying Return to Me. I am waiting with open arms.
Dear Father God,
Thank You Lord for the opportunity to return to You, our first love. Lord You are so merciful, so gracious, so kind, so loving, so patient and I know that You want only the best for all mankind. Lord there are so many things competing for our priorities these days. Yet, the main thing is all the spiritual forces that no one really understands or knows, Lord, but You. Lord I pray that someone who hears this message today would return to You, their first love. Lord I pray that whatever forces are keeping them from returning to You with their whole heart, mind, body, spirit, and soul would be blocked and stopped and that they will make serving You the priority today and forever. Lord You are so worthy of our whole being. May someone hear this message and return to You on today, Lord. Lord, may they stop just existing, but may someone turn their heart to you and truly begin living their life. Lord may this change take place even in this very moment.
In Jesus most holy and precious name I pray,
