Sometimes we get too focused on the blessings instead of God. When I think of this verse my first thought is I seek God first and foremost in my life. We shouldn’t be serving Him thinking what will He give us, instead our attitude and mindset should be God how can I serve You today, how can You use me. Do you see how it takes the central focus of I and instead puts it back where it belongs on Him.
“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” ~ Matthew 6:33
You never have to worry about missing out on a ‘good thing’ if you set your heart on putting God first in your life. He has promised that a life filled with good things will come automatically when you put God, His Word and His will first in your life. When He is your focus and your top priority, good things will always be added to you.
However, this promise needs to be believed and acted upon by faith, just like any other promise of God. The only reason Christian’s don’t see good things added is because they yield to worry and fear. They cease seeking God and try to work things out their way and in their own strength. If you fear missing out on a good thing and act in fear, guess what, you will miss out on a good thing.
Relax in God and trust with all your heart that He knows your address. It is impossible for Him to lie. Believe His promise that those who seek Him will lack no good thing, trust Him to keep His Word, and you will have every good thing that God has planned for you.
Friends I can’t tell you enough how much I ask God for His desires to be mine. Some would say well, why do we need to do that? Do you remember how the apostle Paul put it dying daily(1 Corinthians 15:31 ). Friends by dying daily we ask God to show us His desires and to have Him mold us. As it is written be not conformed of this world, but be transformed( Romans 12:2 ). To me seeking Him first means denying myself which what a surprise is part of being a disciple of Christ( Luke 9:23 ). It is realizing it is not about you, it is all about Him.
Have a wonderful day as you stay focused on Him.
