But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. Matthew 6:33-34
God’s word tells us He will meet the needs of His people. He will protect His people from harm. The Lord is a re-warder of people who diligently seek Him today. He will bless His people today!
God is not offering us a bribe or a reward. He is not telling us if we seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness He will meet our needs for the purpose of having His way!
All throughout the scriptures God is trying to convince us of the benefits of living the life He created us to live. Jesus is telling us to seek the greater prize first!
God created us with a void in our souls only He can fill. He tells us to seek Him first because only Jesus can give us the peace and fulfillment He wants us to have. Almighty God completes us!
We have brothers and sisters around the world who do not know what they will eat today. They are not even concerned about tomorrow yet. I lack the wisdom to try and tell you how to deal with this in your own heart. We can turn to God. We can ask Him!
In this country most of do not know what it is like to go to bed at night with our stomachs growling. We have food in the refrigerator. We must decide if we want ranch or Italian dressing on our salad. We are not physically hungry.
There is great spiritual hunger in this country today. People turn to the latest concept of who they think God really is. They have a void in their souls they are not even aware of!
Will you join me in seeking the Kingdom of God today?
I am going to pray God will take me to a deeper level of understanding of His will for my life is. I am going to pray that God will take me to a deeper level in my relationship with Him. I am going to pray for revival in my City. I am going to pray that it starts with me!
You may not live in the same city that I do. Pray for revival in your heart and in your city. Let’s seek the Kingdom of God together today!
God loves you with an everlasting love. Because God loves you He wants you to seek the greater prize first!
What is the greater prize? The greatest prize a person can receive is everlasting life in the kingdom of God where there will be no tears, trials, trouble or tribulation. The darkness of this world will be replaced by the illumination of God’s great love!
