Is God first in your life? Seeking God first is a transformative practice that impacts one’s identity, purpose, decision-making, character, and relationships. By believing in God and seeking Him, you can experience a sense of spiritual connectedness that can bring deep joy, peace, and a sense of purpose. You see, faith involves not only a mental acknowledgement of God’s existence, but also a deep trust in His plan and a desire to cultivate a personal connection with Him through prayer, study of scripture, and living out your faith daily. Believing in God and seeking Him first have profound implications for a believer’s personal growth and overall well-being, and they are foundational to living out the principles of the Christian faith and experiencing a fulfilling and purposeful life. This article encourages you to renew your commitment to believing in God and seeking Him first. Make Him the priority in your life, and He will never let you down. Be blessed as you read!
Don’t let your fears, worries, or troubles overwhelm you – focus on the One who is able to supply all your needs. So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own (Matthew 6:31-34).
Matthew 6:33 tells us that when we seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, He will give us everything we need. It is a matter of putting God first in our lives. Simple? Yes. Easy? Not necessarily! Sometimes we can get our priorities out of order and begin putting things ahead of Jesus in our lives. It’s important to reaffirm day and night that you are not seeking the things that God gives but instead, you’re seeking God and because of that, you will receive his abundance in your life. Seeking God first requires building an intimate relationship with Him that will sustain you every day of the week. God knows what we need better than we do, and He longs to provide it. However, He requires that we make Him a top priority in our lives.
You always have to keep that fine line there and make sure that your attention is always upon the supplier rather than upon the supply that He provides. That’s what Christ is drawing our attention to in Mathew 6:33. God must be our first priority. And I can tell you, no matter what the rest of them are, if God is not first nothing in your life will work out. I believe that this article can be a source of comfort and guidance for those who are seeking prosperity and the blessings of God, including healing. If you have been side-tracked and lost focus on Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, I pray that you may find renewed strength and direction through these words. You might have been caught up trying to believe God for something. But why do we believe God for things? Why can’t we just believe God? We have to prioritize seeking God and trust that everything else will fall into place.
“Seek first the Kingdom of God,” and here comes the promise, “and all these other things will be added unto you”. So, really, I mean, what else do you need to say? What is it that you want? You may say, ‘Oh, I want a boyfriend, I want to get married’. Well, you know what? Seek God and trust him to bring the right person into your life at the right time. You may be believing God for prosperity – you may be believing God for a new house. But why can’t you just believe God and let the new house come? It’ll be added unto you, the Bible says. You think it’ll be hindered if you don’t believe God for it. But did you know you’re hindering it by believing God for it because you’re diverting your attention to the things God gives instead of focusing on God, the producer and our provider?
