Scripture of the Day - May 31, 2012

Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness...

Many people think they have to straighten out their lives before they turn to God. But the opposite is true.
In Exodus chapter 25 God gave instructions for the building of the tabernacle. He let them know what they were to bring as offering and He let them know that they were to give it willingly with his heart. God wants your heart, not your perfection. He will perfect you!
The very first article they were instructed to build was the Ark of the Covenant. This was where the mercy seat of God was, this is where the testimony of God was going to be, this is where God was going to show His presence and commune with His people.
Each one of us is a vessel where God's Spirit can dwell. The mercy of God can dwell in us. The testimony of God can dwell in us. The presence of God can dwell in us but we must empty ourselves and seek after HIS righteousness.
When the people did what God instructed He showed His presence. When we do what we're instructed God will show His presence in our lives as well. Seek God first...
