In these strange times, we all have many things pulling us in different directions. We want to do good in school or uni so we can get a good job. We want a good job so we can have plenty of money in life. We want to date, maybe get married and live a happy life. We want to make our life count.
How do we balance it all? Jesus answers this question,
â€œInstead, desire first and foremost Godâ€™s kingdom and Godâ€™s righteousness, and all these things will be given to you… Matthew 6:33â€Â
In other words, instead of trying to find the balance of which things to put our focus on, He makes it simple. First, focus on God; His Word and His ways. Pray for His help to do the right thing, for you make the right decisions and all these other things in life will be given to you. Itâ€™s a promise!
Letâ€™s Holla @ God!
God, today I choose to put Your Word and Kingdom first in my life. It might take some time before I get this done, but I will start today. Help me God to get all things in my life aligned with your ways, know that as time goes on I will make sure that all the things you were concerned about in my life are taken care of beginning now in Christâ€™ name Amen
