Revelation 14:6-7

Issue 201211
Seek Ye First The Kingdom Of God
            


"Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? For after all these things do the Gentiles seek: for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.  Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof."  Matthew 6:31-34

    Jesus encourages each of us to take no thought for the morrow. The word thought  means "to be anxious, to be troubled with cares, to look out for, to seek to promote one's interests, to think about what tomorrow may bring."   Your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.  We need to ask ourselves, does the Father see our minds continually on our fleshly needs - - - or does He see our minds on our Spiritual needs?  When we pray, does the Father hear all our fleshly wants?  Lord, give me! Give me! Give me! Then do we quickly say thank you and amen?  Isaiah declares:

    "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in Thee." Isaiah 26:3

    We need to consider our ways. Do we have our minds firm and unmoved on the Father, His Kingdom, and His righteousness?  Many of God's children today have lost this perfect peace, because their minds are constantly on the their own needs, the kingdoms of the earth, and go about to establish their own righteousness.  Jesus tells us:

    ". . . My kingdom is not of this world: if My kingdom were of this world, then would My servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is My kingdom not from hence." John 18:36

    Have you come to this place in the Fathers? What kingdom are you contending and striving and endeavoring for? Are you fighting for the kingdom of this world? Or are you earnestly and diligently striving and endeavoring for the Kingdom of God?  In the book of Luke, Jesus tells us:

    "And when He was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, He answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:  Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you." Luke 17:20-21

    Our heavenly Father desires to bring His kingdom ways and His kingdom principles into your heart. Is your heart open, and sincerely seeking for the Father's kingdom to come into you? Or, is your heart on the things of this world, and fighting for the things of this world? Paul warns:

    "For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God."  Romans 10:3

    Are we seeking God's righteousness in our life? Are we working at purity of life, virtue, integrity, rightness, and correctness of thinking - - - those things in which the Father delights in? Or are we as the self-righteous, Isaiah speaks of?

    "But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away."   Isaiah 64:6

    Brothers and sisters, we need to seek God's righteousness every day of our life, because our own righteousness is as filthy rags in His eyesight.  Jeremiah tells instead to:

    "But let him that glorieth,  glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth Me, that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD." Jeremiah 9:24    

    The Lord's delight is when lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness come into the earth. We are His earth, and He desires to accomplish, complete, and perfect His people. Will you be one of the those who will seek His kingdom and His righteousness?  In the book of Matthew,  John the Baptist  gives us the way to come again into a right standing with the Lord:

    " . . . saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand." Matthew 3:2
