Word of the Day: September 23, 2021 Coming into Divine Alignment with God!
Beloved of the Lord,
Where you put the most time into is what is most important to you, so God says, "SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD, AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND ALL THESE THINGS WILL BE ADDED UNTO YOU."
Beloved, why would the Lord put this truth before us as to what should be MOST IMPORTANT TO PUT OUR TIME, ENERGY, LIFE, HEART, FINANCES AND WORK IN SEEKING THE KINGDOM OF GOD?
GOD MUST BE OUR FIRST LOVE. SEEKING HIS FACE OUR FIRST WORK, AND LIVING TO DO ONLY HIS WILL IN OBEDIENCE AS OUR FIRST PRIORITY.
WHEN OUR LIVES ARE IN DIVINE ORDER WITH THIS COMMAND, EVERYTHING IN OUR LIFE COMES IN DIVINE ORDER. IF WE DO NOT PUT THE KINGDOM FIRST OR DO OUR FIRST WORK, THEN EVERYTHING IN OUR LIVES, FAMILY, HEALTH, FINANCES IS OUT OF ORDER AND OUT OF DIVINE ALIGNMENT.
MATTHEW 6:33 IS NOT A WALL PLACK, IT IS A LIFE LIVING IN CHRIST AND HIS LIFE LIVING IN YOU.
BELOVED, JESUS WARNED US THAT THE CARES OF THE WORLD, THE DECEITFULNESS OF RICHES "CHOKES" THE WORD OF GOD OUT OF US AND THE KINGDOM OF GOD NEVER TAKES ROOT TO GROW IN YOU.
IT IS TIME WE THINK ABOUT ETERNAL THINGS, ETERNAL LIFE AND WHAT THAT REALLY IS AND MEANS FOR OUR LIVES AND FAMILIES. TIME IS TO SHORT AND GREAT DARKNESS IS NOW COVERING THE EARTH.
IF WE WANT TO WALK IN VICTORY AS FULL GROWN SONS AND OVER-COMERS IN THSE LAST DAYS IF FOR US TO SEEK FIRST THE FACE OF GOD, HIS HEART AND HIS DESIRES.
BELOVED, THE ONLY WAY WE CAN EVER KNOW THE THOUGHTS AND PLANS GOD HAS FOR US IS SEEK YE FIRST, NOT SECOND, NOT THIRD OR 100TH, BUT FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS. WE MUST SEEK HIM WHILE HE CAN BE FOUND.
PROVERBS 8;17,21 SAYS, "I LOVE THEM THAT LOVE ME, AND THOSE WHO SEEK ME EARLY AND DILIGENTLY SHALL FIND ME, AND THOSE THAT I LOVE I CAUSE THEM TO INHERIT TRUE RICHES AND I FILL THEIR TREASURIES.
WHEN WE SEEK FIRS THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND THE FACE OF JESUS, THIS ACIVE SEEKING OF HIM BRINGS OUR LIVE IN DIVINE ALIGNMENT WITH GOD, OUR FAMILIES IN ALIGNMENT WITH GOD, OUR HEALTH, OUR FINANCES AND EVERYTHING IN PERFECT ORDER UNDER HIS HEADSHIP.
So important is this truth all of Matthew chapter 6 speaks of the priorities are lives are to have if we called by the name of the Lord.
We are told not to worry about what we should eat, or drink or wear because our heavenly Father knows these needs before we even ask. SO WHAT IS THE PROBLEM AND WHY DO VERY FEW CHRISTIANS OBEY JESUS COMMAND TO SEEK YE FIRST, OR RETURN TO THEIR FIRST LOVE.
FIRST DOESN'T MEAN SECOND, THIRD, FOUTH, BUT FIRST IS FIRST. FIRST IS THE BEGINNING, THE STARTING POINT AND WE ARE CALLE TO SEEK THE KINGOM OF GOD FIRST, BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS IF WE ARE GOING TO LIVE WITH HIM ON THIS EARTH.
IT IS TIME TO START LIVING A DIVIDED CHRISTIAN LIFE. IT IS TIME TO STOP TRYING TO SERVE TWO MASTERS, YOURSELF AND GOD. IT IS TIME TO GIVE THE TOTALITY OF OUR BEING, BODY, SOUL AND SPIRIT TO GOD AND TO SEEK HIM FIRST, HIS KINGDOM, HIS THOUGHTS, HIS PLANS AND THEN DO THEM.
KNOWING THAT WHEN WE DO "ALL THESE THINGS SHALL BE ADDED UNTO YOU.
LETS READ WHAT JESUS SAYS IN MATTHEW CHAPTER 6:
24 No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will stand by and be devoted to the one and despise and be against the other. You cannot serve God and mammon (deceitful riches, money, possessions, or [u]whatever is trusted in).
25 Therefore I tell you, stop being [v]perpetually uneasy (anxious and worried) about your life, what you shall eat or what you shall drink; or about your body, what you shall put on. Is not life greater [in quality] than food, and the body [far above and more excellent] than clothing?
26 Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father keeps feeding them. Are you not worth much more than they?
27 And who of you by worrying and being anxious can add one unit of measure (cubit) to his stature or to the [w]span of his life?
28 And why should you be anxious about clothes? Consider the lilies of the field and Learn thoroughly how they grow; they neither toil nor spin.
29 Yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his magnificence (excellence, dignity, and grace) was not arrayed like one of these.
30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and green and tomorrow is tossed into the furnace, will He not much more surely clothe you, O you of little faith?
31 Therefore do not worry and be anxious, saying, What are we going to have to eat? or, What are we going to have to drink? or, What are we going to have to wear?
32 For the Gentiles (heathen) wish for and crave and diligently seek all these things, and your heavenly Father knows well that you need them all.
33 But seek aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides.
34 So do not worry or be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will have worries and anxieties of its own. Sufficient for each day is its own trouble.
BELOVED HEAR THE WORD OF THE LORD TODAY: BUT SEEK AIM AT STRIVE AFTER FIRST.. FIRST... FIRST.. OF ALL HIS KINGDOM AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS (HIS WAY OF DOING RIGHT, LIVING RIGHT IN OBEDIENCE TO HIM) AND THAN ALL THESE THINGS.... THESE THINGS.. TAKEN TOGETHER... WILL BE ADDED UNTO YOU.
THIS IS DIVINE ALIGNMENT. THIS IS WHAT THE PRESENT OUTPOURING OF HIS PURE HOLY LOVE IS DOING IN THE HEARTS THAT WILL RECEIVE IT.
THIS LOVE WORK IS TO ALIGN US TO BE COMPLETELY ONE WITH JESUS AS A BRIDE SO WE CAN SEEK FIRST HIM AND HIS KINGDOM FIRST AND TO LIVE TOGETHER TO DO HIS WILL ON EARTH AS IT IS HEAVEN.
IN THAT WE WILL BE LIKE HIM AND OVERCOME THE WORLD EVEN AS HE DID. HE WILL DO IT IN US AND WE WILL BECOME A MATURE BRIDE, SONS OF GOD FOR HIS END TIME PURPOSES ON THE EARTH.
