Blessings to the most High God, praise and honour him that liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom is from generation to generation. Praise and extol and honour the King of heaven, all whose works are truth, and his ways judgment: and those that walk in pride he is able to abase.
May the blessings of seeking the Lord’s Kingdom fall down from the throne of God upon all who are loving and looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ.
"But seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."
"Seek ye first the Kingdom of God"
God, in His word, the Bible, has given us all things that lead us to life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3). He told us to "seek first the Kingdom of God." If that is the first thing, the most important thing, that we are to do, how critical is it that we obey that command? We have needs. We have emergencies come upon us. We do have troubles in this life. But in that most important passage of Matthew 6:24-34 the Lord Jesus Christ declares we should not worry about those things, we should not make our wants and desires our focus, but if we seek after His Kingdom, and His righteousness our heavenly Father will add to us what we need. He is our most gracious God and Father who desires to fill our hearts and minds, our life, with all that we need if our life is centered on trusting in Him for all that we need, getting our supply from His bountiful hands. God loves us all so much that He sent His Son, Jesus the Messiah, to pay sin's penalty and die in our place that we can have forgiveness and eternal life. We can overcome the world and put our faith and trust in Jesus for an eternal life in His glorious Kingdom. John 3:16!
In this wicked world that is so full of greed and everything that is opposed to God and His goodness, we, as children of God, must turn away from this world and its evil trappings and set our hearts to seek after God, His righteousness. There is an eternity ahead for us that is filled with all the blessings and rewards from God if we please Him, do His will. The amount that we turn and love the God that brings us life and salvation will be the amount that God pours out His blessings upon us. If we love the world the love of the Father is not in us, 1 John 2:15-17. But, bless God, Jesus came to give us abundant life for all eternity, John 10:10!
