Make God Your Priority

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well." – Matthew 6:33 (NIV)

Good morning Ekklesia Family, it's essential to remind ourselves of the foundational truth found in Matthew 6:33. Jesus teaches us to prioritize God's kingdom and righteousness above all else. In a world filled with distractions and competing demands, making God our priority is both a challenge and a necessity.

1. Putting God First in Our Daily Lives: To make God our priority means starting each day with Him. This could be through prayer, reading Scripture, or simply meditating on His goodness. Psalm 5:3 (NIV) says, "In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly." When we dedicate the first moments of our day to God, we align our hearts with His will and invite His presence into all our activities.

2. Trusting in God's Provision: When we prioritize God, we trust that He will provide for our needs. Philippians 4:19 (NIV) reassures us, "And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus." Our focus shifts from worrying about our daily concerns to trusting that God, in His infinite wisdom and love, will take care of us. This trust allows us to experience peace and contentment, knowing that our Heavenly Father is in control.

3. Living Out Our Faith: Making God a priority also means letting His love and truth guide our actions. Colossians 3:17 (NIV) encourages us, "And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him." Our words, decisions, and interactions should reflect the love of Christ and His righteousness. By doing so, we become living testimonies of God's grace, drawing others closer to Him.

As we close this time together, let's commit to making God our priority in every aspect of our lives. Let's seek His kingdom first, trusting in His provision and living out our faith boldly.

Heavenly Father, we thank You for Your unwavering love and faithfulness. Help us to seek Your kingdom and righteousness above all else. Grant us the strength to put You first in our daily lives, trusting in Your provision and guidance. May our actions reflect Your love and truth, drawing others to You. In Jesus' name, we pray. Amen.
