“And seek not ye what ye shall eat, and what ye shall drink, neither be ye of a doubtful mind;” Luke 12:29
IN JESUS TODAY!
Yesterday we talked a little about asking a blessing, and knocking at the door to receive, but today we must consider the most critical part, and that is seeking, and how we are to seek. If we are asking for a blessing, and we go further into knocking on the doors that we believe will reveal that blessing to us, we need to understand this seeking portion that we are participating in. It is one thing to ask for a blessing, and even another thing to knock on the doors that we believe will reveal a blessing, and waiting for them to open, but a much more critical and huge things remains, and we must learn this!
WE MUST EXPLORE, HUNT, PROBE, INVESTIGATE, AND LOOK…WHERE?
Now why can’t we just ask anyone, or knock on all doors? Why do we have to understand this seeking part? It may seem complicated, time consuming, and even arduous, but it is key to getting it right, and to receiving what is good, as we read,
“But seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all these things will be added unto you.” Luke 12:33
If we truly want what we are seeking, we must seek for it in the right place, and from the right God that is able to give it to us! Not the way that seems right, but the way that is absolutely right, and that way is through Jesus alone! No other name, but the name of Jesus, and no other place, but the Kingdom of God!
WASTED TIME, WASTED EFFORT, LABOR IN VAIN… OH NO!
Say this with me, “Oh no, not I” I will not go to another! Only Jesus can give to me what I seek! If we are to seek amiss then we should receive nothing, and our labor is in vain, as we read,
“Labor not for the meat which perishes, but for that meat which endures unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.” John 6:27
“But my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19
LOOK TO JESUS FOR ALL YOUR NEED!
