Seek Him First

I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.” Lamentations 3:21

What do you long for? What do you seek after? Is it comfort and security? Is it financial abundance? How about vibrant health or a miracle of healing? There is nothing wrong with pursuing the fulfillment of these desires. In fact, God promises us these things in the Scriptures. But the Lord wants us to seek first the things of God. He wants us to desire above all things to be found in Him, to be clothed in His righteousness.

The Lord is to be our portion. This means that to each of us our relationship with Him must be paramount. We must seek to be in His Presence always. We must desire Him above all other things. Yes, the Lord desires to bless us, but He is also a jealous God and He will fight to secure His place as King of our hearts. Lets seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, then all these things we desire will be added unto us (See Matthew 6:33) in the Lord’s way and in His time.
