“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” Matthew 6:33 (NIV)
We are looking to succeed in life by trying to figure it out on our own. We want to be first in our jobs, first in our education, first in getting that big house, and first in coming up with ways in how we make more money.
I have a secret that will help you to be successful in your endeavor. Put God First! We have to seek him out in the Bible and in our prayer life. Learn more of what he requires from us and walk in the way his Word is directing us. We are to take off our old self which is corrupted in deceitful desires and put on the new attitude which desires to be like God in righteousness and holiness. (Ephesians 4:22-23)
True success is when we turned our lives over to God, repenting of our sins and accepting him as our Lord and Savior. When we do this and obey him, everything else will fall in line. Put God First!
