  • ANDRIES MARITZ for verse 33
    That's the starting point to an open heaven
  • Carolyn Huff for verse 33
    Repent and seek salvation. .......and with that comes the full care and provision of God.
  • Seek God first. To me,humble yourself before God Almighty and understand that he is an amazing and incredible God,ruling over EVERYTHING in existence, and what does God want for usvto do when we seek him and his will? Save the unsaved sovthat they may not be lost t ok Satan. It is the will of God and it is alot of work. But equipped will shall be with all things added into us. I know some were hoping I would say he would supply your hearts desires....but Gods focus is on a world in need of salvation , and our joy should be in that too, as opposed to just walking around feeling good about our personal salvation while others are lost and in jeopardy of hell. Is this not so brothers and sisters? Will not our riches be laid up in heaven. Instead of here where moth and rust destroy? Matthew 6:19 Pick up your cross and lets save as many people as we can. To please or loving God, as time is short for the lost. In Jesus love to you all. Amen
  • Marian Kwarteng for verse 33
    God wants to establish his Kingdom on earth as Jesus thought us in the Lord 's Prayer. It begins with his rule in the heart of man. He wants to be in charge. All other things will fall in place, including God meeting our needs.
  • Mockingbird for verse 33
    God , my Lord is telling me here that as I seek the kingdom of God first : Kingdom is where the king rules and reigns over : God is to have rule and reign over me. I have been brought into His kingdom through being born again. I seek to do His will and not to be so concerned about getting all the other things and all those other things will be added unto me. First God : and His righteousness.
