Mathew 6 Devotions by Stephen Taylor

Mathew 6:33

“Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”

Today, when I was working out, God reminded me of a sermon I heard while at MACI. The chaplain there said, “Too often I seek Gods presents over His presence!” God laid that on my heart today, as so often, I’m seeking what He can do for me, not Him! I’m seeking His hand, not His face! 


The crazy part is that when I seek and get into His presence, the presents come with it – LOL! Our God loves to bless us. I personally need to seek Him more than seeking what He can do for me! There is no better place to be than the presence of our Father, and being there is far better than ANYTHING this world has to offer!! Thank You, Jesus, for making a way to the Father for us!!!!

I’m going to try each day to get more into His presence, and I hope you all join me!!

I love you all, and God bless!!! And as always, Glory to God!

 

Matthew 6:33

“Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and He will give you everything you need.”

 

During prayer today, a question came to me, and it went something like this: “What do you cherish most in your life? Family? Friends? Pets? Money? Power?”

 

The list is unending, but nothing should be above our relationship with the Lord! I am living proof of our Living God and His power, hope, and love! Everything I have in my life worth having is a gift from Him: My marriage, my family, my friends, my apartment, and the list goes on and on, but the truth is that my life would be nothing without Him. So, if we know this, then why is it hard to live it? One reason is we’re spending more time listening to the world and less time listening to Him.

 

The Bible tells us He is more than enough, but the world tells us it’s never enough. The Bible tells us to trust in the Lord, but the world tells us to trust no one. The Bible tells us to give freely, but the world tells us to hoard obsessively. Even on the best of days, this world and the things of it will let you down, but the God who created everything never will. He is kind, compassionate, and merciful to the ungrateful and undeserving. He forgives billions of sins and stamps out our condemnation. I know all these things because I was all these things until His love set me free! He is our hope, He is our peace, He is our God, and He is waiting for you just like He was waiting for me!

 

John 14:5-7 - Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, So, how can we know the way?” Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”

 

God bless! I love you all, but He loves you so much more! Glory, Honor, and Praise now and forever to Papa God, Jesus Christ our King, and the Holy Spirit!
