“seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. “Matthew 6:33

1. God has designed life to work His way.
“Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you” – Matthew 6:33 (NIV)

When trouble is behind us we ask for material blessing . (Genesis 28:20)
When trouble is in front we ask for spiritual blessing. (Genesis 32 )

2. We become what we are committed to.
“It’s in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for .“Ephesians 1:11 (TM)
(1) Am I enjoying what I’m doing?
(2) Am I happy with where I’m going?
(3) Am I satisfied with what I’m becoming?

Don’t accumulate possessions, accumulate experiences.

Jer 29:11 – For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

3. Stuff just happens when I put God first.
“My God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 4:19 (KJV)

The right thought, plus the right people, in the right environment, at the right time, for the right reason, always produces the right result.”

God will give you “serendipidous” relationships and ideas to meet all your needs.

Serendipity means a “happy accident” or “pleasant surprise”; a fortunate mistake. Specifically, the accident of finding something good or useful while not specifically searching for it.

seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. “Matthew 6:33

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Matthew 6:33

—————————————————–

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14

100 % GRACE and 100% TRUTH

“but Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. 2 At dawn he appeared again in the temple courts, where all the people gathered around him, and he sat down to teach them. 3 The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group 4 and said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. 5 In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?” 6 They were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing him.
But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. 7 When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” 8 Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground.
9 At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there. 10 Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?”
11 “No one, sir,” she said.
“Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.”
– John 8:1-11
