We face many challenges in life, physical, emotional, and relationships challenges, how do we keep it together, how do we not panic, how do we stay calm in the storms of life. There is only one simply answer. Matthew 6:33 ” But seek ye first his kingdom, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you, be not therefore anxious for tomorrow. That’s it if you want your life in order, if you want things to fall in order we must seek the kingdom first. What does that mean? We are to seek the things of God as a priority over the things of the world. Yes God wants us to have joy, peace and happiness, yes he wants us to be healthy, yes wants you to have a great marriage, yes wants you to have your dream job, yes he wants the bills paid off. If we are taking care of God’s business as a priority, seeking His salvation, living in obedience to him, and sharing the good news of the kingdom with others, then He will take care of our business as He promised, and if that’s the arrangement, why would you every worry about anything? The ball is in our court, it is up to us for our life to run smooth, yes there will be some bumps in the road, but they want stop us, they are meant to slow us down. God has promised to provide for his own, supplying every need, ( Philippians4:19) The least we can do is put His agenda first, after all He paid for us, He owns us, we should want to please Him. But if that is not enough to put Him first, then He said I will pay you, I will reward you, I will open doors for you, I will open the windows of heaven and pour you out a blessing if you just put my agenda first, God says I only have 3 things on my agenda. 1. Spen some time with me( 7 minutes in the morning) 2. Pray and worship me 3.tell some one the good news. Now God will not make us put His agenda first and He will not punish you, He just want add those extra things that you want, if you want more than just the car note paid, you. Can have the car paid off, you can have blessing chasing you, if we put God’s agenda first.
The window in the book of 1 kings 17:13 , put God’s agenda first, she was going to eat the little bread she had and just die, but the man of God Elijah told her, to make a little bread for me first, she did and guess what, God add to her, she lived, with God first, everything else lines up.
