DECEMBER 1, Relevation 4:11
In all things, our great and mighty God must take first place. In every thing He has the pre-eminence. By His Word, God, who created, upholds and governs all things, has the right to rule. He has the sovereign authority to judge the world because He is holy and is the Creator of heaven and earth. When we open the sacred pages, and the first words we read are these: “In the beginning God…”
Some people think that there is no God. They are so wrong. The truth is, not only is there God, but also He exists independently of every being in the universe, for He is infinitely above the reach of all creation.
When we say that God is before all things we also mean that: “Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting thou art God (Psalm 90:2).” Before the world began, God already existed. He has no beginning and no end. He is eternal and everlasting. This month, we will learn from the book of Genesis how God created the world, and the beginning of man’s history.
Who is before all things?

Thought: Remember God is before all things.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, may You always be first in my heart. I may be young but please help me purpose in my heart to put You first in my life. This I pray in Jesus’ name, amen.
