"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." Mathew 6:33
IN JESUS TODAY!
First things first, and God is the first and therefore he comes before anyone or anything else, in other words, what God wants should be what we want to happen first, his will or his heart’s desire should come before us and our desires! If we put ourselves before his kingdom and what he desires, this is an absolute formula for failure, because our efforts and our desires are not in the right order. Let us put God first in our life, because he has placed the ultimate importance upon us and our soul, he has put us first in that he cares for us and our soul even before caring for his own life as we read, "We love him because he first loved us." 1 John 4:19 and, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16 God put you first so that you might make him first in your life! Let us make him the first part of our day, his name the first name upon our lips, the first one when asking, seeking, and knocking, the first source of wisdom when desiring to know, the first counselor to look to when seeking advice and guidance, the first one that we run to when we are afraid or lonely. Let us put God first and not worry over our lives. He knows our needs, he knows our fears, he knows our hurts and pains! Trust God and him alone to be the first one for all that we desire! He can be trusted, as it is written, "But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:19
Put God and the kingdom of heaven first, and he will put your desires first, before those without faith in him, but if God's door should be the last one that we ask at, seek from, or knock upon, then we should expect that our requests come in that same order, last! "First things first" is always placing what God wants, first!
