Matthew 6:33 is a powerful and inspiring verse from the Bible that encourages us to seek God’s kingdom and righteousness above all else. It reads, “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”
At first glance, this verse may seem simple, but it holds a deep and profound meaning. It reminds us that our priorities should always be aligned with God’s will and purpose for our lives. We should strive to live in a way that is pleasing to Him and seek His guidance in all that we do.
The verse also emphasizes the importance of faith and trust in God. When we seek His kingdom and righteousness first, we can trust that He will provide for all our needs. We do not need to worry or be anxious about the things of this world because we have a heavenly Father who cares for us.
As Christians, we are called to be different from the rest of the world. Our focus should not be on material possessions, success, or fame but on seeking God’s kingdom and righteousness. This means living a life that is centered on Christ and His teachings.
When we prioritize seeking God’s kingdom and righteousness, we will experience true fulfillment and joy. We will find purpose and meaning in our lives and will be able to make a positive impact in the world around us. Our lives will be a reflection of God’s love and grace, and we will be a light in the darkness.
Matthew 6:33 reminds us of the importance of seeking God’s kingdom and righteousness above all else. It is a call to prioritize our relationship with God and live a life that is pleasing to Him. When we seek first His kingdom, we can trust that all our needs will be met, and we will experience true fulfillment and joy. Let us prioritize seeking God and trust in His provision for our lives.
Pastor Dave has preached on this very topic recently, saying, “When you make God your priority, your problems will experience His Power!”
Our ministry has seen the results firsthand as Pastor Dave has led us all in giving the first fruits of our day to God by spending the first hour we are all together worshiping God and diving into the word.
This is a practical application point! Try this for 30 days; give the first part of your day to God and see what happens. Start with whatever you have, 15 minutes, 30 minutes, or longer. Spend time in the Word of God and seek Him. Let us know how it goes!
