6:33 Seek the kingdom of God and his righteousness - Singly aim at this, that God, reigning in your heart, may fill it with the righteousness above described. And indeed whosoever seeks this first, will soon come to seek this only.
Mt 6:33 Seek ye first the kingdom of God. The promise is made that if we seek it first, and its righteousness, all earthly wants will be supplied. The condition demands, (1) That we seek the kingdom "first" in point of time. Some propose to secure a competence, and after they have gained it, they will serve God. (2) We must make it "first" in importance. Everything else must give way before its demands. (3) It must be "first" in our affections, have our whole hearts. We must "love the Lord our God with the whole heart" (Mt 22:37). His righteousness. The righteousness that God bestows upon those who are in the Kingdom, Christ's righteousness, the forgiveness of sins in his name.

It means doing away with earthly things and self edified wisdom but casting all your burden on God almighty because in Him we are complete

The context points to the "seeking " of the kingdom of God and His righteousness, the higher spiritual life. By seeking for this we may well be content to leave all else in Gods hands.

Seeking first his kingdom and his righteousness means seeking the fullness of unmerited favour supplied to us through his atonement. He became our sin so that we could have his righteousness as a gift 2 Cor 5:21 not as something we do. We are righteous by believing Jesus made us so. Believing properly gives us all the blessings of Abraham the father of all who live by faith Gal 13:14. When we believe we have been made righteous by faith we start to live righteously and it puts us in a position to have all our needs supplied.

God created us for his own purpose and we are not the one to decide on how to live, to act and behave.So seeking first the kingdom of God is drawing our selves closer to God James 4:8 and he will be closer to us,then we shall know his will and act accordingly.This is the basic issue in christian life.Other things we need will be granted to us as additions. Don 't seek for addition,seek for a basic thing.

Seek to do His will first, seek to know His Son who is also His righteousness, read and meditate on the word, and whatever else it takes through the power of God the Holy Spirit because we cannot do this on our own and as we do, He will furnish us with whatever and all we would otherwise have been focused our attention on getting or accomplishing.

Powerful! I must,nt start seeking the all things first, but I must start by seeking His kingdom and His righteousness first before seeking all things. Glory be always His. Amen.

It means just what is says, God is to be first, he is righteous, when we as sinners repent and except him as Lord, we are then made righteous by God through the blood of Jesus Christ. Having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ is how you get to know God. And all these things..means the desires of your heart, which will be more of the things of God which are spiritual things. Note Psalm 37 4

Seek first His purpose and be in right standing with Him all your material benefits will be given to you on a plater of gold.
Bishop Chirandu's comment on 2014-07-20 00:44:47:
Its all about ranking priorities according to importance. Making a scale of preference . Number 1 priority is seeking God 's kingdom and His righteousness. Being saturated by His word and loving Him with all heart will pave way for other needs physically. Formular for an open door seeking God 's kingdom righteousness open door for material needs.
Captain Juma's comment on 2014-05-22 17:25:28:
when the bible talks of the kingdom of God in matt 6 33,i believe it talks of the rulership of God in our lives.He rules us through his word which are the principles of His kingdom.now before doing anything of our own,we should first know how it is supposed to be done in the kingdom of God through His word.now after seeking to know His will we are able to do it in his righteousness.righteousness simply means 'right ' so we are able to know His will and to do it the right way.now in every principle of God there is a promise and the moment we do it right automatically comes the blessings of God upon us just to fulfil His promises on us.so the easiar way of acquiring Gods blessings is by first knowing His principles,doing them rightly,and that is used as a key to unlock our doors of blessings.we will not require to look for material things,it will only require us to obey God in His word.i.e malach 3 10.and again paul advises timothy in 1st timothy 4 7 10 that,train yourself in godliness for it is of value in every way,as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come. yes, because we obey God by living according to his set standards of His kingdom,we will live the best lives here on earth and afterwards we are given eternal life.the thing is,we become lovers of the word of God,we obey it from our hearts,and God will forever reign in us!

Care for nothing but a relationship with God first and foremost, and your material needs will be met.

The truth of the word.Amen!
Monica's comment on 2014-04-23 03:26:12:
if we can just worry ourselves to do His will according to His Word, He will also make it a point that everything we need will be given to us.
MockingBird's comment on 2014-03-19 08:54:53:
To be natural with God is to be a unnatural person before the people of the world To be unnatural with God is to be as natural as the people in the world is To seek God as I see it is to search for His will and I can only find it in the Word of God To do His will which is His righteousness is to be a doer of His word We can seek God by prayer also I do my part and God will do His part I love the word of God I cannot do without His word at al l It is hard for me to imagine myself without His word I want His word before my eyes continually I want to walk so as to please Him Praise God Forever more
