Seek Him First And He Will Take Care of the Rest

Daily God Walk for Tuesday, April 20, 2010

  Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.    – Matthew 6:33-34

 Jesus concludes this part of his sermon by affirming that we can trust God to rule his kingdom well and that he is concerned about the subjects of the kingdom.

Christian leaders have done a disservice to believers by putting so much emphasis upon making a choice between heaven and hell that we have missed the point of living in the kingdom of God in the here and now.

Since the original sin in the Garden of Eden mankind has been on a quest to restore what was lost. His sin separated him from the peace of God and left him lost in a world full of dangers and pitfalls. Over the centuries man has traveled many paths trying to gain access to God’s acceptance; have peace and be restored to harmony with creation, but he has been left disillusioned and disappointed.

Jesus came offering an opportunity to have in a moment what men had been trying to acquire for centuries. He was offering an opportunity to be born again – to be born into the kingdom of God anew.

Jesus was offering all who would believe the opportunity to be  redeemed from the morass of despair, to be reconciled to God and restored to the person God had created man to be.

When Jesus said, “Seek first the kingdom” he was offering the opportunity of a lifetime. He was telling us that God recognizes the mistakes of the past and he was offering a solution to the condition those mistakes created. All we are asked to do to gain access to God’s kingdom is to surrender the will which got man into trouble in the first place.

Surrendering our will and seeking his releases kingdom blessing.

 Principle: God offers freely what man has sought and not found.

Affirmation:  I have been born into the kingdom of God’s blessing.

 Prayer: Lord, I need your grace to give me strength to surrender my will to you and trust you fro my future. In Jesus name, amen.

    Can I simply just say what a relief to uncover somebody who
    genuinely understands what they’re talking about on the net.
    You actually realize how to bring a problem to light and
    make it important. More people really need to check this out
    and understand this side of your story. I was surprised you’re not more popular
    given that you definitely have the gift.
