Devotional: It's In The 'Seeking First'
Christian Devotion on Seeking first the Kingdom of God
"But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides." - Matthew 6:33 (AMPC)
There is such a fundamental truth in this scripture.
How often do we try to take care of our needs in the area of finances, or try dealing with difficult circumstances before looking to God?
We try to work out how we will get through it, or how we will meet our unpaid bills. God says here in His word to 'seek first His kingdom'.
It's in putting God first in everything and seeking His righteousness, 'His way of doing and being right', that all these other things in our lives will be taken care of. Many Christians have found that by putting God first, the difficult circumstances they are in start to come together in a divine way. God does answer prayer and will intervene as we honour Him first.
This is especially true in the area of finances. By always putting God first, and giving into the kingdom of God, He provides what we need.
God will always honour those who put Him first in everything.
So, if you are facing a real struggle, especially in the area of finances, give it over to the Lord. Choose today to 'seek first His kingdom'. Put God first in everything. He promises to take care of all these other things.

Lord, I choose to put you first,
I give my struggles to you,
For by doing so you'll meet my needs
And you'll always pull me through.
