A thought for today:
Matt. 6:33 "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."
When you seek first his kingdom, and his righteousness everything you need will be abundantly supplied. We always receive what our attention is focused on. Whatever you are giving attention to.
It also says "But my God shall supply all of your need according to his riches in Glory by Christ Jesus"! (Phil.4:19)
Therefore, it is in Christ and through him that we obtain our needs being met. It is through Christ Jesus that we obtain all the promises of God, and the blessings from God. Why do we think we can get them without going through him?
Also this is NOT just talking about money, but all things! We are blessed with ALL spiritual blessings in Heavenly places. Eph. 1:3
I bring this up beloved because we are to give him our full attention. He is drawing our eyes up in this hour. He wants our focus to be upon him. He will be the one, Jesus will be the one that will lead us into all blessing and righteousness. Jesus is the one that reveals where we are going and how to get there. Jesus is the way! He is the only Way! He is the Door! Jesus is the only Door and the WAY is through him (THE DOOR) to the heavenly places which is IN him! Seek him today! You will be greatly rewarded, GREATLY REWARDED!
"As he thinketh in his heart so is he;..." Proverbs 23:7a . Did you know that we do not think with our mind, we think with our heart. In another verse it says " A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks". Luke 6:45.
I think you are beginning to get the idea. And another "Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my thoughts". Psalm 139:23 For some reason, the way God created us ties our thoughts in with our heart. We clearly think with our heart, and out of our heart flows the issues of life. What comes out of the heart of man can breed life or death, and those things can defile us. We need to be careful about what we think.
How do we clean up our thinking? We purify our hearts. Jesus said that the pure in heart would see him! Matt. 5:8 " Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God". in other words, without a pure heart you can't see him. Many people ask me all the time, how do you see more in the Spirit realm? This is how you do it. You begin working on your heart. Ask yourself what is in my heart? What is coming out of my mouth? You begin by developing a heart of repentance, and asking Holy Spirit to reveal all areas in your heart that are not in proper alignment with his Word. Repent, repent, repent. Learn to love repentance. It's that prayer of repentance and brokenness before the Lord that begins to restore us. Ask him to turn that heart of stone into a heart of flesh. IF you want more of Jesus; more supernatural encounters with him, we must purify our hearts. In turn it cleans up our thinking, and from that we become more like him. His Word in us is life, and it begins to push out the old, and draw in; like a magnet the light and life of himself through the work of Holy Spirit.
God is good, and he knows right where we are, and he knows just how to reach each and everyone of us individually. Let's allow our thoughts to be of him, of his Word, his Heavenly Kingdom and soon we see ourselves becoming more and more like him!
Philippians 4:8 " Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report, if there be any virtue and if there be any praise, think on these things".
