“But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” Matthew 6:33
There are times that I get too caught up in focusing on losing weight. I find myself spending more time counting calories and planning when I’ll exercise than praying, worshipping and reading God’s Word. The Bible tells us to seek FIRST His kingdom and righteousness. Not, seek first whatever our passionate pursuit is at the time and then do church when we can squeeze it in. Earlier in this chapter, we learn we’re not supposed to worry about what we’ll eat or wear, but God knows our needs. Instead, we’re to focus on Him and He will provide for us. So, my goal today is to think more about the Lord than anything, to seek His righteousness, and allow Him to provide the things I need (like a healthier body). And, praise God, He is the one who is able to give me what I truly need!!!
Dear Lord, please help us to put You first in all things. May we seek You first, and I ask that You will provide the things we need, including healthy food to eat and the motivation to keep on the right track for Your ultimate glory. In Jesus’ name, AMEN!
