Matthew 6:33 - "But seek (strive to find) first (before all) the kingdom (royal power, kingship, dominion) of God, and his righteousness (integrity, virtue, purity of life, rightness, correctness of thinking, feeling, and acting); and all these things (concerns, everyday needs, desires) shall be added unto you." (Strong's definition is provided for emphasis) This morning I got up for prayer and the Lord led me to get my laptop and begin to blog. I felt the following title impressed upon my heart, "What are you seeking?" This is a question that has gripped me for some time now. You see I went through some great struggles as a child and as an adult it caused me to seek the affirmation of people and I often worried about what they thought of me. I would ask myself questions like," Am I good enough?" To be honest, I often felt rejected. Then I was drawn to Christ the Lord! The first scripture that the Holy Spirit gave me was the one above. I wept and told God that I never knew that I wanted other things and people more than He.
I ask you today, "What are you seeking?" What ever it is can only be found in Christ. Seek His way and purpose for your life. He is our creator and lover of our soul! He knows what we need before we even ask. Begin to ask Him to open your heart to Him on today, to remove everything that is hindering your worship to Him and He will provide. I am a living witness. He is the very peace that we are searching for. (Enjoy this worship song!) - #hopeinchrist
