Day 9 - The Kingdom Seeking Process | Our King and the Kingdom of God 21-Day Devotional

Thursday, March 18, 2021 Bryan Hudson 0 Comments

Scripture Reading: Matthew 6:33 “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

The best way to not do something negative is to focus on doing something positive. God has set processes in place for us that will support us and help us. Seeking God's Kingdom is the thing to focus on. This will prevent worry and sin from disrupting your connection with, and awareness of, those processes.

The Kingdom of God is that process. A kingdom is the domain or territory of a king. We live in the United States of America as citizens. The USA has laws and processes for getting things done. We are also citizens of the Kingdom of God which is governed by the Word of God, and embowered by the Spirit of God. Jesus said that God's kingdom is within us. (Luke 17:21) Because the kingdom is within us, we don't have to struggle to get things done for God.

Example: I am typing this lesson using my laptop computer. When I sit down to write these lessons, I don't have any anxiety concerning whether the words I type will appear on the screen. The operating system of the computer and the applications that I use are always there, ready to transform my tying into a message for others. That is the process of the “kingdom” Macintosh (or Windows) and the related word processing software.

Jesus said, “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness and all these things will be added to you.” Things are added because it is the nature and process of the Kingdom of God, like seed sown, to produce for its seekers.

Again, keep worry "out," by keeping seeking "in."

Reflection Questions:
1. Describe a Kingdom process at work in you
2. Why is focusing on the positive more helpful than focusing on the negative?
