SEEK FIRST HIS KINGDOM AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS.
(MATT 6:33 NIV)
Do you ever think you’d rather be anywhere than in a prayer meeting? Do you find it hard to know when God is speaking to you? Well you’re not on your own. What Christians often fail to realize is that prayer isn’t a boring job we have to endure to please God; no Way! Prayer is talking to the Maker of heaven and earth. Jesus promises us some amazing things will happen when we pray to God with sincere hearts and with Faith. Listen, ‘when two or three come together in my name, there am I with them’ (Matthew 18:20), so when we pray together God shows up…that’s His promise. Jesus also said, ‘You may ask for anything in my name, and I will do it.’ (John 14:14) That doesn’t mean that if you say, ‘I ask for a Ferrari in Jesus’ name’ Jesus has to give you one. When we pray and ask God for things, He is looking at our hearts, not jotting down all the fancy words we use. He wants to know that our motives for asking are right and in line with His plan for our life. Sometimes we ask for things we think will be good for us but He knows would actually rip us up. So how do you know you’re on the right track? Well Jesus gives us a tip, ‘seek first His kingdom and His righteousness and all these things will be given to you as well’ (Matthew 6:33). If you put Him and your relationship with Him first, and press in and pray, you will be amazed at the adventure He takes you on!
