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

All of us have needs and desires. Some of us want better marriages, obedient children, peace, or a better job. Regardless of what we want, that desire can become the focal point in our minds. We’ll think about it often and we’ll go through a million scenarios on how we can get it. If we’re not mindful that desire can become an idol. Instead of going after God, we’ll put all our energy towards getting the desire.

God’s Word says when we ask for the desire, believe that we received it, and put Him first, anything we need, or desire will be given to us (Mark 11:23-24; Matthew 6:33).

With that understanding, let’s put our focus on Jesus. Let’s celebrate His sacrifice. Let’s seek God and see what He wants us to do. Let’s be led by the Holy Spirit. Let’s go after the things of God and as we go after Him, our needs and desires will find us.
