“Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added unto you.” Matthew 6:33
What are seeking first in your life? The truth is there is no hope – no future or security – apart from seeking God first and resting in His arms. And the only lasting prosperity and peace comes as we walk in step with His Spirit. Why do we not trust Him to fully guide our path? And why do we seek His plan for our life without bothering to first seek Him?! God’s plan is for us to be restored to Him and glorify His name as we love Him with all our heart. All other plans regarding the specific circumstances of our existence flow out of His plan for a loving relationship filled with worship.
Seek first the Kingdom of God! Yes, He has promised a glorious future – not necessarily a future free of trouble, but a future filled with “the peace of God which transcends all understanding” Philippians 4:7, a future where we can learn real prosperity by “being content in any and every situation” Philippians 4:12. But this future can only be had by those who seek Him with all their heart. Let’s allow God to be the all-consuming top priority of our life. Let’s diligently seek Him in times of quiet as well as in the midst of the endless multitude of daily activities. And let’s be filled with hope and encouraged by His promise that as we faithfully seek Him with all our heart, He will be found!
