But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you.
Have you been absorbed with the very things that Jesus told you not to? Things like not having enough to eat, or having clothes to wear, or having a home to live in. Your heavenly father knows exactly what you need, and He has promised that if you put His kingdom first, all these things will be added unto you.
But listen to Hebrews 11:3, “Through faith we understand.” “Without faith it is impossible to please Him,” Heb. 11:6. Then again in Heb. 11:33 it says, “who through faith, subdued kingdoms.” If language means anything, then these verses mean that God didn’t just give us faith for temporal things. He gave it to us to first obtain understanding, then to please Him, then subdue kingdoms. Fortunately when we place the needs of God’s Kingdom first, He makes sure we have everything we need.
