                   SEEK YE FIRST



"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."

Matthew 6:33
(NKJV)

The things of this world easily drain you from pursuing that which is really most valuable to you. It is easy to get caught up in worrying about the things of this world. However, if you are going to live a godly life, one that is pleasing to God, then you need to learn to seek first the kingdom of God.

If you are without a job, it is easy to worry about how you are going to pay your bills. However, if you are without a job, that means you have plenty of time to spend reading the Bible and drawing closer to God. Have you ever thought that maybe the reason God is not allowing you to find a job is because HE desires a closer relationship with you? The more time that you spend trying to concern yourself with the needs of your family, the less time you have to obey God and seek first HIS kingdom.

When Solomon first became king, he would have had many responsibilities that would have taken up all his time. However, Solomon took the time to get away and offer some burnt offerings unto the Lord. How easy would it have been for Solomon to say that he did not have the time to go offer 1,000 burnt offerings? But Solomon had seen how important his father’s David’s relationship was with the Lord, and Solomon made a decision to seek first the kingdom of God. Because Solomon sought first the kingdom of God, God was pleased with him and God blessed Solomon with the ability to choose one thing that he desired from the Lord.

There are many obstacles that the world will place before you that will prevent you from pursuing the perfect will of God. If you are going to live a godly life, then you need to learn to seek first the kingdom of God. It does not matter how tired you are, you need to spend time talking with God. It does not matter how early you have to get up for a meeting, you need to spend time seeking first the kingdom of God. It does not matter how desperate your situation, you must set aside time to read your Bible and study it.

What is going on in your life that is preventing you from seeking first the kingdom of God? If Solomon was able to set aside enough time to offer 1,000 burnt offerings, what makes you think that you cannot reprioritize your life so that God can be number one in your life?

Living a godly life does not happen by accident. You do not wake up one day and all of a sudden you are a godly individual who is living a life that is pleasing to God. If you are going to live a godly life that is pleasing to God, you must first lay aside many of the things of this world that entrap you so that you can focus upon pursuing the things of God. You are the one who must make the decision. You are the one who must chose whom you are going to serve.

Are you focused upon diligently adding your life godliness? Are you willing to make the sacrifices that are necessary so that you are living a life that is pleasing to God? Are you willing to make time for God out of your busy schedule?

There is nothing that this world can throw at you that should distract you from pursing a closer relationship with God. It is your choice when you allow the distractions of this world to rob your time so that you have no time for God. It is a choice that you must make whether or not you are going to seek first the kingdom of God.

Please say this Prayer of Faith if you want or need more of God in your life:
Dear Heavenly Father,
I repent and come before you just as I am, with all my sins and faults. I confess Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. I believe in my heart that you sent your Son, Jesus Christ to die on the cross for me and on the third day you raised him from the dead. I thank you Lord, for receiving me now, forgiving me, healing me, protecting me, making my life brand new, and for writing my name in the book of life.
In the powerful name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
