Biblical Meaning Of Matthew 6:33 And Prayers
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to
you as well.
To seek God is a conscious effort and constantly setting our minds towards God in all our daily life. If you desire to be successful in life, your starting point must be God. To seek God first also means to know Him deeply and to have a cordial relationship with Him. Let us imagine you have a father, but you hardly talk to him, you don’t visit him, you don’t call him, but the father is always ready to receive you anytime you visit him. You will notice there will be a gap between you two. However, if you decide to change and start calling him frequently, you will notice your relationship will start flowing very well and you two are happy with each other.
The illustration above, is exactly what happens if we don’t take our relationship with God seriously. If we are far away from Him, things don’t go well with us, yet God is always ready to receive us anytime we call on Him. We must not make God an option, but we must make Him our only option. If we don’t seek Him, we feel discouraged, down casted, and troubled.
That was why He admonished us to seek Him first and His kingdom and every other thing, every other thing meant every good thing of life, and even after life will be added unto us. We must know that in life, not everyone will support our decisions or steps in life, this is why you must know that your decision to seek God’s face, depends on you. Therefore, anything or anyone that will not allow you to say ‘YES’ to God in totality must be avoided. There is a place for everyone in life, this can only happen when we surrender our all to God and seek His face.
Psalm 23:1 Says the Lord is my best friend; I always have more than enough. If the Lord is guiding us, we will always win it doesn’t matter what may come our way.
However, we can seek God’s face by constantly studying the words of God, listening to preaching from anointed men of God, going to a bible believing church or gathering, reading Godly Christian books and lastly by praying.
