Kingdom Counsel · Seeking

seek first…

But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

Matthew 6:33 ESV

But… seek first…

Before anything else… seek His Kingdom…

Seek… translated from the Greek…

ζητέω… zeteo… dzay-teh-o… to seek in order to find… to seek a thing… to seek [in order to find out] by thinking, meditating, reasoning, to enquire into… to seek after, seek for, aim at, strive after…

–Enhanced Strong’s Lexicon

First seek… His Kingdom…

The Greek translated as kingdom… means royal power… kingship… dominion… rule… not to be confused with an actual kingdom but rather the right or authority to rule over a kingdom… (Enhanced Strong’s Lexicon)

Seek after… strive for… God’s rule… power… dominion… and righteousness…

There is Kingdom counsel in these words…

Seek first His rule over your life… practice His righteousness… and all these things will be added to you…

What are these things to be added…?

The things we seek after out of anxiety… food… drink… clothing… material needs…

Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?

Matthew 6:25 ESV

God says… But seek first… My rule… in your life… and I will take care of everything else…

Do you seek His rule…? His lordship…? in your life…?

This would be His counsel… His rule… for those who choose Him…

Let Me rule your life… have no fear…
