Scripture of the Day - November 4, 2012

Matthew 6:33  But seek ye FIRST the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

I am convinced that the majority of us brush over scripture and don't actually apply it to our lives, or at best we partially apply it. Jesus was very clear that we are to put Him FIRST, but if we are to be honest, we don't. Oh we may go to church every Sunday and we may even read our Bible and pray every day, but to actually apply the Word, to let it be etched in our hearts so that we live it instead of just reading about it is something many of us fall short on. 
We tend to be fixated on our own righteousness and not on God's righteousness. This actually puts up a barrier to God truly ruling our hearts. We stand on our knowledge (of theology) not keeping in mind that the devil also knows who God is... and look where he is headed. 
Folks, our actions come from our thoughts. We have to seek God in our thought process first. Our thoughts must be filtered through the Word of God. If our thoughts and reactions to the things of life are contrary to God's Word then we are seeking our own righteousness not God's righteousness and we are missing out on the tremendous blessings of God.
