WHAT ARE YOU SEEKING?

HH Sir Godfrey Gregg D.Div

“But seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6. 33).

For every heart that is seeking anything from the Lord, this is a good watchword. That very thing, or the desire for it, may unconsciously separate you from the Lord, or at least from the singleness of your purpose unto Him. The thing we desire may be the right thing, but we may desire it in a distrusting and selfish spirit. Let us commit it to Him, and not cease to believe for it, but let us, at the same time, keep our purpose fixed on His will and glory, and claim even His promised blessings, not for themselves or ourselves, but for Him. Then shall it be true, “Delight thyself in the Lord, and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart.” All other things but Himself God will “add.” But they must be ever added, never first.

Then shall we be able to believe for them without doubt, when we claim them for Him and not for ourselves? It is only when “we are Christ’s” that “all things are ours.”

Lord, help me this day to seek Thee first and be more desirous to please Thee and have Thy will than to possess any other blessing.
