Sunday Morning Scripture - What does it mean to seek first the Kingdom of God?


If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, "What shall we eat?" or "What shall we drink?" or "What shall we wear?" For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Matthew 6:28-33

To seek means to look diligently for something. But before you look diligently for something, you should know what you're looking for and where to look. The scripture says that the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness (doing things the right way), peace and joy in the Holy Spirit (Romans 14:17). So now we know what the kingdom is. But where is its location? Luke 17:20-21 says that the kingdom of God is within you.

If you're looking diligently within you for the kingdom of God, you should be searching with the intent to find righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit which is our internal Spirit guide and connection to our Source.

As we daily set aside the time to connect within and bask in the peace and joy and learn the right way of living through the Spirit, we become aligned with the Universal energy of abundance which brings all that we desire to us easily and effortlessly. We enter into the flow of the Spirit and the outward struggle of trying to make things happen, provide food on the table, clothing on our backs and all the things that we are 'going after', will begin to come to us.

Kingdom living takes us to the root of all we desire, where we nurture the seeds and roots of our lives and no matter what we face, we know that we will come through victoriously. We know that we will rise up above any circumstance that comes our way because we have entered into the kingdom where true life and power resides. We learn through the Spirit how to live and draw from the abundant stream of our eternal supply. We no longer go around aimlessly, but we live life on purpose knowing that we are totally connected.

With this knowledge, we are commissioned to spread the good news to others that they too can look diligently within and seek first the kingdom of God and all that they desire will be added to them as well.
