SEEK FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD
So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.
Matthew 6:31-33 NLT
In times of crisis, I am reminded of a great quote, “Our anxieties reveal our priorities!” I don’t get anxious about a shortage of coffee—Cindy and I don’t drink coffee. I only get anxious about the possibility of losing things that are important to me. If my priority is to seek God’s kingdom on earth as it is in heaven than I don’t have to be afraid of stock market shifts or a virus crisis. I will still be cautious with my money and my health. But I refuse to live in fear. As we put our priority on God’s kingdom then we will ride through the roller-coaster of life. There will always be ups and downs in life. But we can trust that our Heavenly Father will always be there to provide and care for us. When God’s kingdom is my priority then He will see that all the other stuff is taken care of. What are your priorities in life?
Holy Spirit I want to see God’s kingdom come to pass in my life. I want my life to reveal to the world what life looks like when God is in charge.
