“Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” Matthew 6:33
Thoughts on today’s verse
Seek — pursue relentlessly — God’s Lordship over your life and the righteousness it demands in your daily life. What you pursue is all temporary; only God and his Kingdom remain. In the process, you will find that the God who gives you his Kingdom and righteousness also will bless you with the things that you need in this life
Holy Lord, only in you do I find what satisfies my soul’s desires. The things that have captured my eye are boring after only a short while. The artificial things I have pursued, all of my addictive pursuits, have left me empty and enslaved. I find hope and help only in you. Please be near to love, correct, discipline, lead, and mold me to your glory. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
