Seek ye First
God! The creator of Heaven and Light, who not change or cause darkness by turning. God created the universe; the earth is of the lord and the fullness thereof. The earth was formless and desolate, by His word. He brought us into being through the word of truth, so that we should have first place among all the creatures.
Mattew7:7 make an illustration about seeking. Seek and ye shall find; anybody on earth that is longing to receive something from the Lord should be ready to seek. There are so many ways you can seek the Lord. The saints in the ministry donít want to seek the Lord. Beloved, to receive from the throne room of grace, you have to seek him sincerely through your service or prayer for it is time for you to deny yourself when you serve the Lord, service is a personal sacrifice. Self-pity will not give you promotion; donít allow self pity to capitalize on you, before you can attain the post of a leader be ready to serve, there is no limit in a servant of the Gospel if you are ready to serve. Many saints are called by God to be servant but were not fulfilling the calling. Seek the Lord faithfully in your service, and those spiritual, financial and material things shall be establish. When you do the will of God the Father, be committed to it and did what He tells you to do, your services will make a way for you. Believers in the ministry of help, when you seek the Lord sincerely, what you do for the Lord matters; the little thing you are doing for God will give you greatness. If you want to become a leader, get ready to serve with humility when you labor in vain there is no reward for you, only those that labor in word and in doctrines will be kingdom stars (I Timothy 5:17).
The young lion do lack, and suffer hunger: but they seek the lord shall not lack any good thing: Depart evil, and do well: seek peace and pursue it, Psalms 34:10, 14.
Any Christian that want to spend his/her lives flourishing must seek the Lord by meditating upon the word of God ...seek peace and pursue it, when you seek the Lord the peace of the Holy Sprit will abide from the throne room of grace. Be diligent with it, and pursue your dreams. Commitment in the realm of the sprit is peace of the inside. Beloved, if you donít get done what is needed to be done, those desire of yours will not come. Those things you labor for in the ministry are not in vain, there is a reward in store for you; put trust in Him for he shall sustain you. Seeking the Lord is a personal sacrifice. Itís something you have to do with the sincerity of your heart. Seeking with your heart will touch the throne of God. Psalms 2:11 says. Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with tremble. The fear of the Lord have to abound when you seek the Lord, the Bible says, the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; when you fear the Lord you contacted wisdom, the word says wisdom is a profitable to direct and where there is direction, you will not tossed or labor. The saints keep on having problem because they did not tremble with fear of God, I said in my word, do not fear anybody but fear ME for I AM the LORD, saith the Lord of Host!
Seek the Lord with purpose `Psalm 27:8 says: when thou saidst, seek ye my face, my heart said unto thee, thy face, lord will I seek.
You chose to serve the Lord in your services, anything that needs to be done in the ministry is on purposeí Ömy heart said unto thee, thy face Lord, will I seek. You have to take your time seeking the Lord before you get involve in the work of the ministry. Donít ever follow anybody. Be yourself, and allow the Holy Sprit to lead you to the office you will be functioning. If it is by the Holy Sprit, you will not struggle; you will work joyfully with the strength of the Holy Sprit!
