Look To God First

Matthew 6:33-34 – But seek FIRST the Kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Sometimes, our daily lives cause us to worry about things that God tells not to worry about. We worry about how the bills are going to get paid each month, how we are going to eat, getting the next job to make more money in hopes to relieve us of the worrying.

Have you ever heard of the saying, “if you want different results, try something different?” Apply this to your life today. I’m a firm believer that sometimes God places us in certain situations, to get what He needs from us. Maybe you’ve been looking for a new job with a large increase in salary, however, it seems like nothing has really come your way. The Bible says to “seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be given unto you.” Well what does that mean? It means to seek God for all of his Glory. How do you seek God? Prayer, Fasting, Reading and studying the Word! Spend time in God’s presence.

Something to think about: Being a Believer in Christ is a lifestyle. Don’t be afraid to give Him more of yourself. That’s all He wants all along. When you seek Him, ask Him for what your heart desires and He’ll bless you more than you could ever imagine. Try it! What do you have to lose?!

Prayer Starter: God we thank you for awarding us fresh mercies from day to day. Teach us to cast all of our cares on you. You told us that the battle at hand is never ours to fight, but they are yours to fight for us. Give us a thirst for you, so that we may earnestly seek you and your righteousness. All these things we pray and ask of you, we declare it done in Jesus’s name. Amen.
