“But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation.”
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
Have you ever looked at these two verses together?
Jesus, must first suffer many things and be rejected. He did all that and more.
What are we told to do first? To suffer? Be rejected? These things will happen. At the rate our country is falling away from God it will probably be sooner rather then later.
“But seek ye first”
Is how we will make it through any trials and tribulations we will encounter. As a matter of fact He promises we will be persecuted for His Names sake.
So, I sincerely suggest we learn to:
“seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness;”
How do we seek “the kingdom of God“?
He told us it is at hand, today, right here on earth, within us, without us, available to whosoever will.
We must turn our face towards God, learn of Him, Walk with Him, hunger and thirst for His Righteousness. Desire Him, more than the air we breath.
Request all He has for us. Learn from and obey His Holy Spirit…Jesus healed all that were afflicted. He has sent us to do the same.
His book is filled with promises. They are ours today, if we will learn to touch the hem of His garment. Take up His Yoke. Learn to walk in the light.
I know I am a skipping record, playing the same song… So Be It.
I do not care… I long to be closer. I long to be used. I long to see souls saved, the sick healed, the dead raised.
Jesus promised we would. I am seeking this God, the God of Power, Might, Mercy and Love.
The Lord and Savior I love. Help me Lord.
