Seek First the Kingdom
What truly influences our life? What occupies the majority of our time? What compels or motivates us daily? What kind of attachments do we have or where do our affections lay? What has first priority in our life? These questions only we can answer about ourselves. We need to be truly honest. Are our pursuits, positions, title, recognition, material things or the Lord?
Have we given ourselves to the Lord completely? We need to have a single- minded commitment to the Lord God. Matthew 6:33 (AMP) “But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides.” Our priority should be to seek first the kingdom of God. Each day, we live as a believer, we either strengthen to live seeking first the kingdom of God or not. Our life motivation should be to live by the Lord God’s ways, methods, principles and standards. This should be our passion in life. Our first commitment should be the Lord and doing His will or purpose. If the Lord is first, He will take care of all the other things in life.
As a believer, we need to be different than the world who seek comfort, security, finances, and being trendy. There are lots of things of the world’s way that compete for priority in our life. We must willingly and fervently choose to give Him first place in every area of our life. Our thoughts should be filled what His desires, to serve Him totally and be obedient in everything. We should honor the Lord God in all that we do, that is seeking first the kingdom of God. We should honor Him at work, with our family, in our relaxation and in serving.
