The Lord’s Abundant Blessings For Those Who Seek Him First

March 23, 2013 | Tags: ,

Taste and see that the Lord is good.
How happy is the man who takes refuge in Him!
You who are His holy ones, fear Yahweh,
for those who fear Him lack nothing.
Young lions lack food and go hungry,
but those who seek the Lord
will not lack any good thing.

-Psalm 34:8-10

Jesus says, “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be provided for you” (Matt. 6:33). Over and over again God’s Word tells us that those who fear the Lord and seek Him above all else will not lack what they need. In fact, the Lord delights in overflowing His resources upon His children who seek Him first.

It is good to take an evaluation of your life and to ask God if you are seeking Him above all else. A few indicators may be the time you spend studying His Word and the time you spend in prayer. If these activities are just add-on’s to your long to-do list, you may be missing out on the close fellowship God wants for you and Him.

God delights in spending time with you. The world and Satan will say you aren’t accomplishing much if you spend most of your free time studying the Bible and praying. But oh, the kingdom of God is so different than this world! All of heaven looks down and adores to see you reading your Bible and praying on your knees. It is good to remind ourselves daily that we are to walk by faith and not by sight. The kingdom of God will remain forever, while the things we see now will quickly vanish away. Would you rather live for a vanishing world or for a world that will never pass away?

Maybe it’s time to make some changes to the way you spend your time. God is more than willing to help you. Take time with Him today asking what can be placed to the side so that you can have more quiet time with Him. God promises that those who seek Him above all else will lack no good thing!
