Pocket Sized Thoughts – Prayer – Part 5

Your heavenly Father knows that you have need …. But seek first the kingdom of God.” (Matthew 6:32,33)

These words of Jesus come in a section of the sermon on the mount that is all about priorities. We can become so weighed down with the burdens and needs of the day. Food, clothes, jobs, children, schooling, even the work of the church can become burdensome. Don’t allow these anxieties to go round and round in your minds, analysing them, then rehearsing your analysis (which may be incorrect) before God. He already knows. What a comfort this is. Instead, employ your mental, physical and emotional energies in pursuing, in prayer, for the governance of His kingdom within your life. Then, other things can be left to themselves, while the righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit of His kingdom (Romans 14:17) will be ours.

PRAYER :- “Lord, help me to have the priority of first, your kingdom in my life.”
