The kingdom of God is our first pursuit as children of God

“But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” Mathew 6:33

Our kingdom is the kingdom of order. Order is the language and currency at which our kingdom functions appropriately.

God is saying to us to first seek his face all the other things shall fall into their right places. We need to know that before anything existed, there was God almighty, whose nothing supersedes. Priority is valuing something to the point of sacrificing to make sure all else comes last and meets the requirements for lasting fulfilment. In this kingdom, where we are called to live and exercise our dominion, we only find fulfilment when we abide by the laws of heaven. The second thing he said is that we need to seek his righteousness; we need to know righteousness is the sceptre of the kingdom of God.

 Righteousness is the absolute nature of God. We must accept Jesus as lord of our lives and embrace the place of his righteousness. The Bible tells us that Jesus gave us his righteousness when he died on the cross of Calvary. So, it is high time we follow the righteousness delivered and avoid walking foolishly in sin.

Mankind is the only creature that has the power to choose against his own creator and whether knowingly or unknowingly, that is another case altogether. God has privileged him with most precious gift which is the gift of a will. The will is either a curse or a blessing to us depending on how we use it.

All else shall be added to you. All the cares of this life shall be completely made available unto us if we seek first things first. For example, right now, the first thing you need to succeed in life is life on earth.

Only the dead will understand this point much better. When you go to the cemeteries today in your neighbourhoods, you will realise that there is no vision planning in that dreadful place that we almost avoid every day from looking at it or even thinking about it. It is a quiet place that makes us afraid, yet that is our destiny, whether we like it or not. The only thing you have to do is make things right with God and your ultimate will be preserved for your benefit.

Therefore, let’s prioritise things that are beneficial to life first and all else will align to our tune if we allow first things first. Our welfare and dignity will be fully restored if we abide by his instructions in the scriptures every day.

Prophetic Confessions: Lord, today, as I seek you first and your righteousness, everything else shall align itself automatically. The sceptre of your kingdom is righteousness. Today I embrace your righteousness.

Prayer of Salvation: Thank you Jesus for the privilege of the sacrifice on the cross of Calvary just to redeem me. Today I acknowledge you as the lord of my life. I refuse to walk in ignorance. I am born again in Jesus’ mighty name, Amen!

If you have prayed this prayer, I believe you are saved, now find a Bible-believing church and grow your faith in Him alone.
