IN THE MIND OF GOD, YOU ARE HIS PRIORITY
When you recognise that you are God's priority, you are simply acknowledging that God's eyes are focused on you for good. Not only has God been generous in His dealings with His own, He has also been faithful in perfecting them. This is the assurance of His love for us, grounded in the work of Jesus Christ. Priority is the fact or condition of being regarded or treated as more important than others. In God's mind, everything that concerns you takes priority over any other matter.
Reference: Philippians 1:6 New American Standard Bible (NASB) "For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work among you will complete it by the day of Christ Jesus."
Paul is certain and sure that God will finally finish or bring to completion the good work He started in your life because you are His priority. As a new creation, you are the favourite of our heavenly Father. He only has you in mind for good work. The Scripture above is not talking about Christians or spiritual superheroes who have "arrived" in their walk with God. It is Paul describing the continuity of God's work in His children's lives, as He perfects and improves them to wholeness and maturity in conformity with Christ.
The moment we accept Christ as Lord, the process of becoming more like Christ begins immediately. From that point, we continue to mature and strengthen our relationship with God. So we are daily encouraged by the work of God's Spirit in our lives. This is the reason we must continue to yield to the guidance of the Holy Spirit and subscribe to His intelligence. The Spirit of God would continue to perfect our salvation, and as we let Him, He would carry on its completion until Christ's return.
Psalm 138:8 (NKJV) says, "The Lord will perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy, O Lord, endures forever; Do not forsake the works of Your hands." We are God's handiwork and so, He will perfect that which concerns us. God is always working for you and He is at work to make all things work together for your good. This is because you matter to Him as His number one priority. Your work, business, career, education, marriage, children, relationship are God's business too and He is deeply concerned about you.
When the Spirit of God is making a difference in your life, overtime, you'll notice the impact until it becomes evident to all. Therefore, immerse yourself in the Word and fellowship with the Holy Spirit always, so that in due time, all may see your progress as He perfects all that concerns you.

Exuberant Declaration: My life is made of God's glory and goodness because I'm His number one priority. I see life from this perspective and I know that He's at work in me both to do and to will of His good pleasure. I'm born for the glory of God and I manifest His works of righteousness in my world. As I yield daily to His Spirit, He perfects all that concerns my health, finance, business, career, education, marriage, association and salvation. Hallelujah
