ABC’S of Faith
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. – Matthew 6:33
Sometimes we think of our Christian lives as the blessings that God should continually give us. We seek Him for the doors He opens, and for the dreams He can make come true. There are times, probably more often than not that we believe every day should be like Christmas morning if we are Christians. After all we follow God, right?
God does want to fulfill all that we desire, but only if it furthers His Kingdom. He ALWAYS knows what is best for us, EVERY SINGLE TIME, no matter what we may think.
Humble obedience however is a prerequisite, as is faith, belief in God’s timing and a love of our Father God that outshines all else.
Everything we think, all we desire, and do should reflect God’s desires. We must mold our lives into what God desires. However, we tend to do that when it is convenient, when we aren’t armpit deep in work/family/friends. I don’t think that is what God had in mind.
Simply put we are to surrender all. Every corner of our lives, every crack, crevice, every dark hole and our closed closets. Give it to God.
Daily sacrifice of self is not only welcomed by God but it is a necessary part of seeking the Kingdom of God.
Seeking the Kingdom of God will open the door for Him to rain down His gifts on us. It is only when we seek His Kingdom that we can fully realize that God wants to fulfill the desires of our hearts and to believe that He can do what He says!
Many of us we have felt for many years that we were the only ones we could really count on, it is darn scary to give control over to anyone, even God. However, if we trust God, the first time and every time, things will fall into place because God will put them in place, His Place.
Put your doubts in your pocket and simply trust. Realize that an eternity with our Father is worth far more than anything this world can offer us anyway. Throw your cares on Him and trust that as you are seeking His Kingdom He will be there to receive you into Glory.
