“But seek ye first the
kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto
you” (Matthew 6:33)
The Lord has ushered us into a special season of expansion, and this entails
expansion and increase in every area of our lives. As a Christian and minister
of the gospel, the first and most important thing you should be concerned with
is the expansion of the Kingdom of God. Your desire should be to see His
kingdom established and His righteousness manifested in your world.
Don’t be fixated on establishing your comfort, satisfaction,
enjoyment, and happiness; let God’s Kingdom be your focus instead. This should
be your constant contemplation. Jeremiah said, “…Let Jerusalem (symbolic of God’s Kingdom and
His rule) come into your mind” (Jeremiah 51:50). Let the spiritual things of God’s Kingdom be
top most of your priorities.
The beautiful thing about giving the things of God priority is
that every other thing will fall into place for your good as our opening
scripture declares. Romans 8:28 declares “And we know that all things work together for good to them that
love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” Be and do what God wants,
take His dream and follow through with it.
