But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
Right before this verse, Jesus commands us not to worry about what we eat, drink, or wear. We get so focused on these other things that if we aren’t careful we can miss the kingdom of God.
Jesus turned our thinking upside down when He promised that everything will be given to us when we make the kingdom of God our priority. We think if I can get everything together, then I can find fulfillment. Jesus says, make the Kingdom of God the number one thing in your life and fulfillment and satisfaction will follow.
Your Main Focus
As you make the Kingdom of God your main focus, everything else takes care of itself.
In Daniel Kolenda’s book, “Live Before You Die,” Daniel put some practical advice to this promise. He says,
“If you want to know what job God has for you, seek His kingdom and you’ll find your occupation!
If you want to know who you should marry – seek His kingdom, and you’ll find your spouse!
If you want to know where you should go to college – seek his Kingdom, and you’ll land in the right school!
If you want to know where you should live – seek His kingdom, and He’ll lead you to the right geographical location!
It’s That Simple
Can it really be that simple? Could this one promise really be the secret to finding out God’s will? My friend, these is not my words. These are not the words of a philosopher or a preacher. These are the words of the Son of God Himself.”
When your relationship with Christ is the priority, when you submit yourself to His will and leadership, all the other area of life come together. As you learn to live and follow the kingdom of God, you find everything else is added to you.
Let’s look at that promise one more time.
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. – Matthew 6:33
Confess this with me
As I seek the kingdom of God everything else falls into place.
I seek the Kingdom of God by making Christ my priority.
Today I make the kingdom of God my focus.
I look forward to all God brings into my life.
In Jesus Name,
