Reflections From Sunday: Seek Ye First The Kingdom Of God

We wake up everyday to a list of priorities. Everything from Family, Work, School, Appointments, Meetings, To-Do Lists, and the like flood our minds and hearts. We rush through our day only to see a pile of unfinished projects haunting us for the next day. We repeat this cycle until we say, “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!” After we’re done pulling our hair out and yelling, the question that needs to be asked is, ‘what do you do about it?’

Matthew 6:33 tells us, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” God knows that we have a million and one things to do in a day. He knows that we have goals and ambitions in life that fuel our efforts. He knows that we have desires greater than what we currently see. He knows all of this because He created us. He created the very thoughts we have towards Him and knows that in order for those plans, thoughts, and efforts to be successful, we need to seek Him. If we seek God the same way we seek our next victory in life, if we seek God like our spouses and partners, if we seek God like our next breath when we’re winded, we would see the manifestation of those things we are seeking after.

God chooses to dwell within His people. He decided to give us the Spirit that is not just similar to Him, but the exact deity of Him. We must seek the Spirit of God within us and in His Word and know that all other things we give attention to will be taken care of.

Our minds wander to any and everything except for God when that is all He asks of us. The moment we take our focus off of all of the things we need to do and focus on God, we will find that help and provision gravitate towards you.

Never underestimate the power of God in you and know that as you seek Him all other things are being added unto you.
