Recently, I have come to love Mathew 6:33 because it tells us all we need to do in order to get all we need, it says “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you”. If you back up a bit in the chapter, you will see that we were being told to seek His kingdom because we were worrying about petty things that He could provide in a snap of a finger.
You see the thing is that I know most people know this verse but it is one of two things, they either don’t want to do it or they don’t know how to do it. I talk about the first thing quickly, if you do not want to do it then I’m sorry but you won’t receive anything from God that is all that there is to it, there is no twist & turns. It is like trying to get something from your parents when you have never done anything good for them in your life, it just won’t work out & if at all they decide to give you something/ do something for you; it will be way less than they could have given you/ done for you. Think about that.
Now for those who don’t know how to do it, it is way straightforward than you think. All you have to do is Drown yourself in everything associated with God. I know the way I put it sounds a bit funny & extreme but I sincerely mean it. Praise him, Pray to him, Devote yourself to him, read his word, hear his message as often as possible; not just on Sundays because I tell you that is not enough at all, listen to music only about him because it lifts your spirits and strengthens your faith, literally drown yourself in him & I tell you he will love you so much & do so much for you. These things are so easy to do but we find ourselves devoting our time to less important things & then we wonder why things do not work out, it is because God is not fully involved in your life equation. I noticed this in myself recently; I sometimes walk a long distance to get to the bus station if I was going to to class or if I wanted to run some errands but on Wednesday I needed to go to church & I said in my mind “woo, I can’t go jare” but on a second thought I realized that I would never say I couldn’t go if I needed to go to class or someplace else, so was God now more important than my classes abi who would even help me pass those classes. So I dragged my self up & went to seek his Kingdom. It is the same with this blog, I stopped writing for a while because I got lazy & tired but I realize that if I had an assignment to type I wouldn’t even think twice(who wants to fail before) but it was not right because I stopped spreading His word & seeking His kingdom in my own little way & by His grace I will never stop. This is how it is for most of us, we put God last so much that we don’t even realize it anymore.
I pray that as you have read this you will have to grace to always put him first in all things and I pray that as you seek his kingdom today, God will seek you out of the multitudes & bless you abundantly.
