Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. Matthew 6:33 (NLT)
Let’s look at this verse in reverse. God will give you everything you need…if you seek the Kingdom of God above all else and live righteously. The Bible is clearly giving us a roadmap to having our needs met. Earlier in this chapter (Matthew 6:31-32) it tells us: “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs.”
The key to having your needs met is to not worry. God already knows what’s happening in your life. He already knows what you need. So, the prescription for God providing what you need is to seek the Kingdom of God (above everything else) and to live righteously (righteousness as defined in the Bible, not what we feel is right). When we focus on Him and do His will, He will take care of the other areas of our life. What changes do you need to make in your actions, conversation, and thoughts in relation to Matthew 6:33?
