Seek The Kingdom Of God Above All Else


Peter W Guess

kingdom of God, anxiety

Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. - Matt 6:33 (NLT)

Here's the context from The Message version of the Bible...
If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers—most of which are never even seen—don’t you think he’ll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you?

What I’m trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God’s giving. People who don’t know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works.

Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met. - Matthew 6:30-33 MSG

I'm left speechless or wordless. Jesus with his latest version-writers, make these passages come to life and speak to the deepest of the human condition. The deep need - beneath all conscious human needs - the need for God. The need to know God intimately.

The need to be known by God and then to make God known. This is bliss. All worldly wealth, passions and experiences cannot compare to being loved by Jesus Christ and being a part of the Kingdom of God.

Can you feel the tug in your heart pulling you towards Jesus?
