“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” Mt. 6:33
“If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.” Col. 3:1-4
” “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Mt. 6:19-21
I don’t know about you, but seems I’ve been seeking people, places, and things most of my life. Always seeking something. Always seeking someone. Restless. Always looking, looking, searching, searching, seeking, seeking. Yearning. Longing. Wanting. Going after. Chasing after. Trying to get. Going after. Looking for. Needing. Feeling like I need anyway. The great seeking. Story of my life, it seems. Do you know what the Lord has to say about seeking?
Look at the scriptures above. Study His Word, diligently, daily, deeply. What does He desire we seek above all else?
HIMSELF! A forever relationship with Him through repentance and faith in Christ who died for us and our sins and sin penalty and was raised from the dead. His love. His Word. His fellowship. His forgiveness. His company. His care. His compassion. His mercy. His kindness. His wisdom. His direction. His will for us. His ways. His blessings most especially the spiritual ones. His provision. His plans. His purpose. Seeking to love and adore and worship and obey and praise and honor and serve and glorify Him!
Our seeking above all else is to be SEEKING THE LORD JESUS CHRIST and ABOUT THE LORD JESUS CHRIST and FOR THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.
Friend, I need an overhaul in this area of my life – daily. A reminder to get my priorities in order. That day by day, hour by hour, breath by breath, I need to set my focus, my heart, my thoughts, my mind, and my seeking on JESUS.
Are your priorities in order when it comes to seeking? SEEK THE LORD! SEEK THE LORD! Seek HIM! Seek His will. Seek His ways. FOR HIS GLORY!h
