DAY 22: Seek First the Kingdom!

“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” - Matthew 6:33 

Today, we’re going to put aside worrying about ourselves, what we will eat, what we will drink, what we will wear, where we will live, etc. and focus FIRST on seeking the Kingdom! 

The word Kingdom is derived from two words, “KINGS” and “DOMINION”. Literally speaking it means the place or territory that is under the control (dominion) of the king! 

So what does that look like?

“For the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.” - Romans 14:17 

And also:

 “For the kingdom of God is not in word but in power.” - I Corinthians 4:20 

So scripturally speaking, the kingdom is: 

  • Righteousness 
  • Peace 
  • Joy 
  • Power (IN the Holy Ghost!) 

Today, you will seek FIRST the rule of King Jesus. You will bring righteousness, peace, joy or power to a situation or person you know. You will look for opportunities to DO the right thing, bring peace, bring joy or demonstrate power! You can pray for peace or joy or release the power of the Holy Spirit on someone’s life, illness or injury. 

And what can you expect when you seek FIRST the Kingdom? “All these things (food, drink, clothing, etc.) will be GIVEN to you as well”. So rejoice! Your needs will be met! 

Get out there! Go do it! Tell us how it went!
