“Therefore do not worry, saying ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear ?’ For after these things the Gentiles seek” Matt 6:31-32. Are you worried about food, drink and clothing? After these things the Gentiles (non-Jewish followers of Christ) seek. Food, drink and clothing belongs to the physical body, In God’s scale of preference He wants us to know and seek after His kingdom first then every other things shall be added to us.”
“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” Matt 6:33. Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness. To seek means to purse after His kingdom with diligence. There is no kingdom (domain) without a king; hence the focus of this verse is on the King of kings and Lord of lords Jesus Christ.
Since you first received Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior have you made any progress in pursing after the great King of the God’s kingdom? We can seek Him by reading the scriptures to feed our spirit with His knowledge. The understanding of His personality (how He dealt with folks in scriptures) will allow you to know what He likes and don’t. These will help you to flow easily when you meet Him. Having the knowledge of Jesus Christ is great but how about meeting Him? Yes, it is very simple to meet Him it is called prayer. Prayer is one of the avenues where we converse with Him just like we communicate in every other relationships of ours. Those who’s top priority is to know the King will have time to seek Him but those who’s priority is not to know Him will always give excuses why they ignore prayer. The decision is yours but I will encourage everyone to make a personally effort to know Him.
The pattern of the bible is to seek the kingdom of God first and every other things shall be added. In some circles today is the other way round. It makes a lot of sense now that we have some among us who are seeking prophecy, prosperity and self-fulfillment agenda. Before anyone become a professional, he or she must have sought or invested 2-5 plus year in college or equivalence to be trained and tested before they practice the profession. Maybe we can learn from the children of this world. How about getting more serious with our walk with the Lord today so we can be strong and do exploit in Him.
The hour has arrived to return back to the bible way, we all have to study the word of God to know what has been freely given. Honey, we have to learn how to pray and continue to grow in relationship to Jesus. We need to learn how to listen to the Holy Spirit and be led by Him always so we are not toss to and fro by any wind of doctrine. Jesus Christ should be the center of our lives and He will bless us beyond prosperity, prophecy and self-fulfillment.
A prayer of blessings for you
“The Lord bless you and keep you. The Lord make His face shine upon you. And be gracious to you. The Lord [a]lift up His countenance upon you And give you peace. So they shall put My name on the children of Israel, and I will bless them” Numbers 6:24-27
