WHAT IT MEANS TO SEEK GOD’S KINGDOM 1

Matt 6:33

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. KJV

Opeyemi read this scripture and decided he wanted God to bless him now. He had struggled all his life to get the good things of life but he hadn't really succeeded. So he decided to obey this scripture; he decided to seek God's kingdom first, then wait and see the blessings overtake him like it did Kehinde; a shining example of someone who the Lord greatly blessed because of his faithfulness to God. Unfortunately for Opeyemi, he never received any of the expected blessings from the Lord. Was it that the Lord didn't honor His word in Opeyimi's life?

You see, Opeyemi did not receive anything from the Lord because he never really truly pursued the kingdom of God. All he was really after were the things of this life. He simply served God because he believed doing so was the easiest way to get the things he wanted out of life.

When a man seeks God’s kingdom for the purpose of having “all these other things added unto him”, that man is not really seeking God's kingdom but doing exactly what Jesus is preaching against in today’s Bible text; he is seeking material things, albeit indirectly.

Go into today determined to understand and seek God's kingdom. Know that the benefit of seeking God's kingdom is inheriting God's kingdom. The rest are simply manifestations of the presence of God’s kingdom in any life.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank you for giving me an opportunity to inherit your precious kingdom. I pray you help me inherit it, in Jesus name. Amen.
