Make Jesus Your Priority And See Blessings Added To You

July 14, 2011

The scripture today is all about what we all do very well and that is worry.  There are plenty of things on the bible about worry but the truth of the matter is no matter how much we worry it will not help the circumstances, many times it will hurt our circumstances.  You can worry all you want about your current problems, but worrying will not improve or change your situation one bit.  I do not make light of your situations or my situations, I simply am giving you the best solution to worry that I know.  The only solution that I have ever found does not come as a result of your struggling, it will come alone by resting in the person of Jesus and His finished work.

In the scripture Jesus tells us not to worry about certain things as “your heavenly Father knows what you need” and promises “that all these things will be added to you.”

Ok here is a little review.  How is God’s righteousness?  Jesus!  And are we completely in Jesus and He in us?  Yes!  So if Jesus is God’s righteousness then because we are in Him and He is in us then we are the righteousness of God through Christ.

The scripture Jesus is actually preaching of himself.  Because Him and God are one in the same the scripture says that when you seek Jesus first in your life and make Him a priority each day, all the material possessions (what you eat, drink and wear) will be added to you.  No matter what anyone tells you, God does not delight in taking things away from you, He only delights in adding to you, increasing you, promoting you and enriching you.  The Lord’s goodness and grace is available for us every single morning we awake.

I can tell you that putting Jesus first in your life, reading His word, practicing His presence and the consciousness that He is with you is the key to success, but I am not going to tell you to do that.  There is too much preaching in this world so another blog telling you what you should and should not do is not what you need.  I want to tell you what brings success to your life but I do not want to demand that you do it.  I want to simply encourage you to know Jesus, find out who He is and who you are in Him.  Once you do and seek that you will fall in love with Him.  Once you fall in love with Him you will want to spend time with Him.  Once you spend time with Him you will do all that it takes to be a success.  Demanding you do it is not the answer, encouraging that you learn more about Him and who you are in Him is the only way to you making the choice to fall in love with your Savior.

“Therefore do not worry, saying, “What shall we eat?” or “What shall we drink?” or “What shall we wear?” … For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.  But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.   —   Matthew 6:31-33

The Lord loads us with benefits daily!
