"But seek FIRST His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.'
So much of life's problems could be solved in we would just seek God FIRST. In our world, there are many things pulling for our attention and focus- money, careers, success, fame, friends, drama, television, technology. The list goes on and on. If we would just lay all of our distractions aside, and kept our eyes fixed on Jesus, just imagine how much of our chaos could clear up.
Are you looking for peace, joy, contentment, confidence, security, safety? Then SEEK JESUS FIRST and his kingdom- everything else will be added to you. Commit yourself to reading the Bible everyday, and let the truth of scripture guide your path as you walk with the Lord (Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Psalm 119:105)
When you become a Christian, you instantly have an enemy that will do everything to pull you away from your faith (1 Peter 5:8). Your enemy hates you. He is out to kill, steal, and destroy your life (John 10:10). But the bible promises that IF we resist the devil and submit ourselves to God, he WILL flee from us (James 4:7). Allow God to work in and through you. That process will include letting go of some idols in your life. It will include letting go of anything God is asking you to surrender. That process may be painful, but the end result is worth it!
Jesus has always been there, and He is constantly changing people's lives. The decision is in YOUR hands- it is up to you if you want change to come into your life. Everyone wants to live in FREEDOM. Freedom is possible IF you give yourself to Christ. No matter what that looks like for you, it is WORTH IT. I can promise you that. The love you will encounter from God is better than life itself.
Lord, help me to surrender everything to you. Help me to lay down my life for You, and give me the grace to follow where You lead me. I want to seek You first in everything I do. I need your strength to accomplish that goal. In Jesus name, Amen!
God bless you!
