But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added unto you. Matthew 6:33
Every time you place your personal needs above God, these needs become idols and violate the principle that Jesus taught us in Matthew 6:33 when He said: “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” The law of priorities establishes that when we place God first in all matters, He takes control and makes certain that all our concerns are resolved. Every time we put someone or something above the Lord, we fall into idolatry. You might be thinking, “I would never do that.” Nonetheless, whenever we place the Lord to the side because of school, work or family, we are doing just that: we are taking the priority away from Him. The same thing happens when we say we “adore” our children, parents or spouse, when the only one we should adore is God. Many times we take our focus away from God’s matters, and instead run to take care of our own personal needs first. This is the day to put our priorities in order and start to do the will of God.
Think of the areas which you have valued above the things of God, adjust it. Many times we have compromised our faith in order to achieve something, this is Idol worship, you also have to start putting God first and make leaps of faith.
Pray with me
Lord Jesus, I regret not having You in first place in my life, and for having lost my relationship with You. Today, I make a commitment to seek your face, every day. I want to go above and beyond my limits, and pray at all times without ceasing. I want to hear Your voice and strengthen my relationship with You, Jesus. I love You, Jesus!
1 Kings 3:13
Moreover, I will give you what you did not request–both riches and honor–so that during all your days no man in any kingdom will be your equal.
Wealth and riches are in his house, and his righteousness endures forever.
With me are riches and honor, enduring wealth and righteousness.
