Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Are you struggling with finances or worrying about how you are going to make ends meet?? Or, is there something you desire so badly that you are completely consumed with it and you cannot think of anything else??? Maybe the reason why you don't have what you want or need is because your priorities aren't right!
When we focus on the things we need or want but don't have, we begin to let worry and anxiety and sometimes even lust of material things enter our lives! When the fact is, if we are doing what we should be doing by seeking God, he will take care of us! To "seek first the kingdom of God" is to put God first in your life! When you put Him first, everything else just falls into place!!
So, as far as needs go, Philippians 4:19 says that God will supply our every need according to his riches in glory!! That means,he has pretty much got out needs covered as long as we keep our eyes focused on him! And as for wants, Psalms 37:4 says that if we delight ourselves in The Lord, he will give us the desires of our heart!!!
So you see, all he wants is for us to love him and give him our full attention and in return, he completely takes care of us!! He is our Great Provider!!! We just have to keep our eyes focused on HIM!!!
