TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I Am a good Father. I know your faults and failures. I understand your needs. Come into the living room. Sit and talk in My presence. Only there can I give you right standing and victory.
JESUS WILL MEET YOU THERE
Seeking proves you want it. What is it? The Kingdom! The Kingdom of God is where Jesus rules and reigns. When you seek the Kingdom, you’re also seeking the King.
As a Christian, the most important thing you can do is seek the heart of King Jesus.
“But Pastor Troy, you don’t understand. I need to get cured of my disease or addiction. I need better relationships and my finances are a mess. I need more faith and understanding of the Bible, and I want to speak in tongues. If Jesus cares about these things, shouldn’t I be talking to Him about them?”
Well, yes and no. Yes, Jesus cares about all those things and more. But this is the key to answered prayer: When you seek Him and the right standing He gives you, you’ve qualified for upgrade.
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. – Matthew 6:33
You see, seeking qualifies you for the thing you’re looking for. A seeker is somebody who pays attention to spiritual things. It’s somebody who looks for the Kingdom and goes to the next level in everything they do.
God meets people in the place of seeking. Here’s an example: Any time that you see Jesus say, “Lo” in the Old Testament, He’s saying, “Look for Me.” When He says, “Lo, I am with you always, even to the ends of the earth.” He’s saying, “Look for Me when you get off your map.”
Jesus will meet you in the place of seeking – when you’re out of your element and your comfort zone has been left in the dust. Is this where you are today? If you’re not, get off the couch. Go after the Kingdom. Jesus will meet you there and add all these things that you need.
