Seek Ye First the Kingdom of God
Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. (Matthew 6:33 NLT)
Those were the words my wife and I heard on the radio one morning after investing some money in a scheme that was to make us some income. After talking it over we both strongly felt we should go and see if we could get our investment back, in which we pursued. I’m not saying if the investment was right or wrong. But we both felt our heart wasn’t right toward the Lord. We were not seeking the Lord and His kingdom but seeking a monetary gain.
The word seek means to search or look for, want, ask, ask for, expect, examine investigate. We are to be seeking His Kingdom, His reign, His rule, His domain.
His promise is that if we do seek His Kingdom, we can expect Him to take care of our needs.
Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and he will give you everything you need. (Luke 12:31 NLT)
And so I tell you, keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. 10 For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened. (Luke 11:9–10 NLT)
