The Secret to God's Provision
Luke 12:31-32

In Luke 12:31-32 Jesus tells us, "But seek the kingdom of God..." (In Matthew 6:33, He said, "Seek first the kingdom of God... and all these things shall be added to you.") "Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom."

The secret to receiving God's provision is to put God's Kingdom first, then everything else will be added to you. That includes all the things you worry about and strive after. God promises He will add them to you.

I know for some people it is just too simplistic. It is just a childish notion to be brushed aside. But, to do so is a grave mistake. Never underestimate the power of obedience. When we obey God and get our priorities in line, it unlocks and releases incredible blessings in our life.

When we put the spiritual above the material, when we put the cause and the mission of God's Kingdom before our own personal desires, it will cause things to be added to our lives.

I remember reading about J.L. Kraft. He began his business by selling cheese on the streets in Chicago, but failed miserably. One day a Christian friend told him, "J.L., you don't have God first in your life, or in your business. Put Him first in all things you do, and you will see a different outcome." From that day on, he put God's Kingdom first in every way and he built the largest cheese empire in the world.

First things first. Jesus said, "Do not worry. Just get your priorities in line, and God will take care of you."

For Your Information

     Yesterday we continued our new series: Red Letter Days. We looked again at how Jesus, when He was on the cross, uttered some very powerful words. We focused on the statement Father, Forgive Them. We all need forgiveness from God, as well we all need to forgive others. Unforgiveness puts us in a sort of prison. Forgiveness, when it is extended from us, releases us from this prison and benefits us as well. This message is on our site, on the home page, just below the calendar, if you missed it. As well, we are now on iTunes. Next week we will continue this series as we consider Jesus' words: I Thirst.
