But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Matthew 6:33
In all you do put God first. Even when life seems confusing remember God is all knowing and His thoughts towards you are good. But you’ve got to remember to put Him first and allow Him to guide your path.
I have realized that every time we put our agendas before God we will always be disappointed. Why? Because our flesh/ our canal mind will always lead us astray. We tend to walk by what we see and not by faith when God is not in the drivers seat.
When things don’t go our way we allow our emotions to take over, which is a big mistake. The enemy will lie to our minds and convince our flesh that we do not need God to direct our every move….that’s a lie.
I remember in the bible the story of Eve in the garden of Eden when she stepped out of the will of God and chose to walk in the flesh, her mind was easily lied to because she chose to put her emotions first and the enemy used God’s truth against her that she forgot that what satan was offering was already who she was. She believed his lies and sinned aganist God.
“Genesis 3:1-6 One day Satan came disguised as a snake and spoke to Eve, convincing her to eat the fruit from the tree of good and evil. Eve told the serpent that God said they should not eat it and they would die if they did, but Satan tempted Eve to eat saying that she would become like God if she did. Eve believed the lie and took a bite of the fruit. She then gave some to Adam for him to eat. Adam and Eve, now knowing that they had sinned, immediately felt ashamed and tried to hide from God”
Many times when we dont seek God first, it becomes easy to forget who are in christ and believe the lies of who are friends say we are and we end up doubting our lives and purpose because we are walking outside the will of God. The bible says, walk in spirit because I am spirit. We can not please God by walking in the flesh, seek Him first always.
When we are not under the covering of God we are vulnerable to the ways of the enemy. It’s easy for the enemy to tempt us and we believe his lies because we have forgotten who we are in christ. We need God always to guide everything we do because with him we can achieve anything, be anything and do anything.
Things are easier when you seek God first because He becomes your strength when your weak, a shoulder to cry on when you need a friend. Whenever you are in need He will supply all according to his riches in glory.
Life is great and more fulfilling when you have placed your desires, goals, dreams and all the pieces of your heart in God’s hands. Remember this today to put God first and He will always cover you, bless you and protect you from all harm.
