Our Security is in Christ
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.Matthew 6:33
When we seek first his kingdom and righteousness, God promises that we will have our earthly needs. When our focus is serving Christ, then God’s focus is on us, and he will make it possible to meet our earthly needs. This is not the way the world has programmed us, but it is the divine way of God.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. (Proverbs 3:5-6) We need faith that if we are light on hill for Christ, the Lord will make our paths straight and enable us to provide for our worldly needs. But we need faith to put serving Christ as our first priority in life, then God will provide.
God provides for our needs to live in this life, but he will not supply our craving for luxury. When we are close to the Lord with hearts of love, our desire for worldly things beyond our essential needs will disappear, because our soul is content with the blessings from God. When the Israelites followed God and kept his commands, life was good, God protected them, and they had food and housing.
The key to having life to the full is to live for Christ being a light on a hill. Satan has programmed the world to put self as priority and God second, and this is logical to the worldly mind. But God’s divine plan is to live serving Christ and He provides. For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. (Mathew 6:32) The world runs after worldly things, but we serve the Lord and he provides what we need, which are listed in Matthew 6:28-31
We have to overcome our worldly thinking and replace it with Godly thinking given in his Word. We need the faith to live with our priority as given in his Word; serving Christ first and trusting God where nothing is impossible. With hearts filled with God’s love, we will preform all things better because we depend on the Lord’s divine guidance and help. We live showing and telling the world about Christ, and he guides us through life to Heavenly home.
Today live for Christ in everything you do. Let your faith led you to depend on Christ for everything.
Prayer: Lord always increase my faith and the love in my heart to serve Christ, and to always trust you to guide me through life and into Heaven. In Jesus name, Amen
