"Seek ye first the kingdom ... all these thing shall be added unto you" (Matthew 6:33)
How much time have you spent in your Christian life meditating on the plain instruction from our Saviour? - "Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."
The God who has revealed Himself to needy men and women wants us to know that when we have Him, we have everything - we have all the rest!
Any of us who have experienced a life and ministry of faith can tell how the Lord has met our needs - even for food and the essentials of life.
Brethren, we ought to learn, and learn it soon, that it is much better to have God first and have God Himself, even if we have only a thin dime, than to have all the riches and all the influence in this world and not have God with it!
Let us go on to know Him and to love Him more dearly, not for His gifts and benefits, but for the pure joy of His presence. Thus we will fulfill the purpose for which He created us and redeemed us!
Dear Lord, help me make the transition from wanting more and more "things" to being satisfied - and overjoyed - with only Your presence in my life. Amen
