Today’s Message: Seek First


Today’s Scripture

“In the night I search for you; in the morning I earnestly seek you…”
(Isaiah 26:9, NLT)

Seek First

Jesus said in Matthew 6, “Seek first the kingdom of God.” That word “seek” is a strong word. One definition is “to require as a vital necessity.” You have to see spending time with God as being vital to living a victorious life. When things get busy, the children need you, it’s hectic at the office, or you’ve got a thousand things to do, you’ve got to put your foot down and say, “No, this is not an option. If I’m going to be strong, if I’m going to be my best today, if I’m going to have God’s favor, I’ve got to rearrange my priorities so I can spend time with God.”

You may have to get up earlier—before the children need you, before checking your emails, before the phone starts ringing. Take time to invest in your spiritual well-being. We feed our physical body at least three meals a day, but often we feed our spirit just once a week at church. We wonder why we feel burned out, unenthusiastic, and lack favor, wisdom and creativity. It’s because we’re not taking time to get filled back up. Just like we feed our physical man, we need to feed our spiritual man. When you invest in your spiritual well-being, it will pay huge dividends in your life.”

A Prayer for Today

“Father, today I choose to put You first. I acknowledge that without You, I can do nothing. I invite You to have Your way in my life as I seek You first in all that I do in Jesus’ name. Amen.”


  1. The bible is an old piece of garbage that was used to hoodwink you dull Africans whilst westerners stoke your riches. Even my white wife from Switzerland agrees that her people were wicked enough to use religion to take advantage of us. So why should any African believe that bible nonsense. I would rather worship my white wife body

  2. I will always seek You God and thank you for who and what You have been in my life Lord. You have never failed me and You have always carried me and opened doors for me. In You I shall forever be and trust. Amen!

  3. Let those that believe in it worship freely. In same light let those who have different sexuality such as the gay and bisexual people to be free from persecution. I do not encourage hate based on religion or sexual orientation. Grow up neez
