TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
Pursuit is a big deal in the Kingdom. Those who seek are rewarded with the ultimate gift – My presence. The way to the throne room is through the servant’s quarters. Seek to serve others. Seek to serve Me and you will find.
ADDED UNTO YOU
Do not approach God as though you are a survivor. Why? Because the survivor mentality is a poverty mentality and surviving kills seeking.
But from there you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul. – Deuteronomy 4:29
Newsflash! There are over 100 verses in the Bible that tell you to seek God. Every one of them says if you seek, you will be rewarded. If you’re all about just surviving the moment, you’re not going to be about stepping out of your comfort zone.
A survivor’s mentality stops you in your tracks from seeking. That’s exactly what Jesus is addressing in Matthew 6.
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? – Matthew 6:25-26
Survival mode is the kryptonite to seeking because it keeps you immobilized in fear and worry. Hear me on this: You are not a survivor! You are an overcomer. You are an overcomer because you are a seeker.
Pay attention to spiritual things. Pay attention to Kingdom things and be sure you have a great priority to see the Kingdom come in your life and the lives of those around you. You’ve gotta seek the Kingdom and God’s righteousness in order to be “added unto” or blessed, and that makes you an overcomer!
