Dunamis Seeds Of Destiny 28 March 2023 Devotional By Dr. Paul Enenche — The God-First Mentality And The Life Of Greatness

TOPIC: The God-First Mentality And The Life Of Greatness (Seeds Of Destiny 28 March 2023)

SCRIPTURE: And Abraham gat up early in the morning to the place where he stood before the Lord: Genesis 19:27.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: People who take God first cannot come last in life; and people who consider God last cannot come first in life.


The God-first mentality is one prominent feature of great people. People who take God first cannot come last in life; and people who consider God last cannot come first in life. To seek God and His Kingdom first is to attract every treasure of life (Matthew 6:33).

One major secret of Abraham was his God-first mentality. Abraham was addicted to God and His cause.

In Genesis 18:19, God Himself testified about Abraham saying:
For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the Lord, to do justice and judgment…

For many of us, it is other people that testify about us, here is God Himself testifying about Abraham. God said, “I know Abraham; he will not only keep my law but will also command his household to keep my law”.

It is very critical to know that God did not say that Abraham would command only his “family” to keep God’s law but his entire household.

Household, in this context, implies everyone under Abraham’s employment. That is, anyone that had anything to do with Abraham was under a mandate to serve Abraham’s God. No wonder he made such a great impact in his time.

How else do we know that Abraham lived with the God-first mentality?
Abraham had a daily schedule of communion with God (Genesis 19:27). The day would not break to meet Abraham without communing with God; rather, he must break the day by having a fellowship with God. No wonder he lived such a life of excellence and distinction (in his generation) which all of us envy today.

Remember this: People who take God first cannot come last in life; and people who consider God last cannot come first in life.


  1. Make God the first and most important priority of your life.
  2. Make up your mind to commune with God always.

PRAYER: I receive Your Grace, Lord, to make You first in my life. Deliver me from the temptation of skipping my time of communion with You, Lord in Jesus Name.


QUOTE: The God-first mentality is what I call an incurable addiction to God; a brutal dedication to God. It is a situation in your life where God is first and last and everything else is in-between. Culled from “21 UNCOMMON KEYS TO FINANCIAL OVERFLOW” by Dr Paul Enenche.

DAILY READING: 1 Chronicles 15-17

AMAZING FACT: Your whole brain doesn’t sleep.

PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: As you put God first, may you take your place in life in Jesus Name.
