“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” – Matthew 6:33
This was one of the verses that called me out of the Navy and into ministry back in 2009. Trusting that by seeking internship and ministry I was seeking the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and trusting that he would provide all else. Now almost 3 years later I can confidently say that he has infact done this. He has more than provided for us (now married!).
It’s a great reminder as I’m sitting here praying for wisdom as I look to budget for this next season. I’m scared, I don’t want to serve money, but I want to serve God! (Matt 6:24) I want to keep seeking the kingdom of God and His righteousness. Why would I have any reason to doubt that he would continue to do just as he has, perhaps miraculously This is the kind of thinking that is outward, rather than inward. Fear and anxiety, they cuase you to look inward, but love and trust cause you to look outward. This is a beautiful gospel truth that is only possible by the power of the spirit and the death and resurrection of Christ. Who is blessed forever, amen!
Moving forward now, with a praying heart. Thank you Jesus.
Praying for more of this, for a heart of trust and faith.
