4/21 Days of Prayer
Matthew 6:33 (NKJV)
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
Hide and seek was one of my favorite games growing up! When you were the seeker, you had one goal: to find who was hidden. Finding the person that was hiding was always an exhilarating feat. The Bible tells us, “seek first the kingdom of God and all of these things will be added to you.” If I’m being honest, there have been times in my life that I have found myself searching for things outside of God’s Kingdom. “Seeking first the kingdom of God” isn’t as complicated as you may think. In fact, you are doing so as you read this devotional. By going through this content, you have carved out some time to seek God. I am so proud of you! The goal is to continue to make this time a priority in your life after these 21 days are complete.
Take 15 minutes every day to seek God. Spend 5 minutes in worship, 5 minutes in God’s Word, and 5 minutes in prayer. When we take time out of our day to focus on God, we are doing exactly what Matthew 6:33 encourages us to do.
God, help me to be a Christian that puts you and your kingdom first. Help me to make time with you a priority. Give me a hunger for your word and for your presence. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
