Jesus has given us a wonderful verse that each of us should embed deep in our hearts. Do you know what it is? ‘Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.’ You might be worrying about certain things in your life. ‘What would we do for our food or for our dress or we need a house to stay, what would we do? What would we do for our income?’ There is a lot to worry about. God is telling us this, when He was talking about those worries: ‘You do not worry about anything. But, seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you!’ Do you need a house or a job or marriage or childbirth? All these blessings shall follow! But you must first seek the kingdom of God! So, first God, His kingdom and then His righteousness! You must focus on these things. God’s righteousness should be found in our lives. You should focus on God’s kingdom – the heavenly kingdom! That’s our end. That’s where we are about to go. So, we need to focus only on that. God is preparing a home for us there; What should we do to go there? What should we do to store our treasures there? That’s what we need to focus on.
We must give it the first priority. All the worldly things, worldly needs, worldly treasures and every other things are only secondary. ‘If you give the first priority to God, His righteousness and His kingdom and seek it, then every other blessing shall follow you on its own.’ God says so. So, why are you anxious? Why do you worry? You should only focus on God, His kingdom, His righteousness. Jesus Christ, Heaven which is His kingdom, His righteousness. This is only important to me. I shall seek Him. Submit yourselves that you will be His kingdom’s heir. Rest of the things shall fall in its place by itself. He will do everything for you, on your behalf! Believe! Shall we pray? ‘Father, We thank you for the guidance You gave us to seek first God’s kingdom and Your righteousness. Hereafter, I don’t want to be scared, anxious or worried about the worldly things. I seek You; I seek Your righteousness; I focus on Your kingdom. You’ve promised me that all these things shall be added unto me; I believe it and I receive it. In Jesus’ name I pray, Father.’ Amen. Amen.
