What does preeminent mean? One writer explained it , “has a variety of meanings, including: “above all others; excelling others; excellent; surpassing all others; supreme; superb; marvelous.” Preeminent is related to predominant, meaning: “having ascendency,” “dominating all others.”
As we pray today, let us allow Him to be first in our lives. Yesterday we shared that no one will be able to dethrone Him because as G-d, He is L-rd of all. However, as humans, we tend to try to take His place in certain areas of our lives. We think it is okay that He is L-rd in my spiritual life, but He wants and should be L-rd in every area of your life. That includes your family, your job, your relationships, etc.
He should be first in our minds. We say it in the V’Ahavta every week – Talk about Adonai when you lie down, when you rise up, when you’re on the road, and when you’re at home. Yeshua should not just be in our hearts and minds when we are in a service or in our devotional time. He should be at the forefront of our minds in every aspect of our lives.
As we pray today, let us choose to make Yeshua preeminent in our lives.
