Seek Ye First
Matthew 6:33 NIV: But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
For what, or whom, do we build our homes? For what, or whom, do we live our lives? As we make our way through this world, what is it that we seek? Imagine being able to say, "I build my home for God´s kingdom," or, "I live my life for God´s righteousness." If that were your motto, what do you imagine your life would look like? Christ promises that those who seek first His kingdom and His righteousness need not worry, because they will also have the things they need. But what is it that we seek? Do we seek to sustain ourselves, accumulate things, or provide ourselves our daily bread? Do we seek houses, careers, pensions, or retirement? Imagine saying, "A man´s gotta eat," or, "God helps those who help themselves." If that were your motto, what do you imagine your life would look like? Look around. Those who live such a life are all around-perhaps closer than you think.

The Word of God is living and active. If you confess the Word of God over your heart and life, it will not return void. We encourage you to meditate on these confessions.
And I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people. (Isaiah 51:16)
The Lord has put His words in my mouth therefore I shall be his mouthpiece, and because He covers me I shall not be afraid to speak.
