First Things First – S4 DEp6 

Lady V’s Devotional Episode 

Matthew 6:33-34 (NLT) says: 

Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and HE will give you everything you need. “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.” 

Matthew 6:33-34 (NLT) 


Have you ever gotten so caught up in what you wanted that you forgot what you needed? Our minds can get so crowded with wants and worries that we tend to focus on what is meaningless compared to God. 

As a result, we stress out. We focus on career goals, marriage goals, life goals, and yet forget to consult the Creator of all things.

Of course, it’s nothing wrong with having life goals. But the greatest goal in life first should be to SEEK GOD!  

First things first! 

It is most important and necessary for life to SEEK GOD, SEEK HIS KINGDOM, and HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS.  

To sum it up—GOD FIRST and everything else comes second. We must give God first place in our lives and live the way He wants us to live (TLB). 

First things first! 

You may ask, “Why is that so important?” Well, the answer is simple; God created you and has a plan for your life that is good! HE knows what you need and when you need it.  

When depending on GOD and living the way HE purposed your life to be, all the necessary things will be added to you. 

Furthermore, the Word of God says in Romans 8:14 NLT; “For all who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God.” 

Beloved, if you believe in Jesus Christ—you belong to the family of God and you are God’s child. And, if you seek God first and are led by HIM, you can cast away every anxiety about what’s ahead. 

Thus, you can take comfort in knowing that as you depend on GOD, HE is in your tomorrow and everything will be alright.   

So, find out what HE wants you to do, and live with this in mind—God First! 

First things first! 

Let’s pray… 

Heavenly Father,  

We come to you in the Name of Jesus with thanksgiving in our hearts. Father God, we thank YOU for YOUR goodness in our lives. We thank YOU that we can always depend on YOU. 

We seek YOU Abba Father! We look to YOU for guidance. We look to YOU to order our steps. We look to YOU for wisdom in every situation. We look to YOUR Word as our way is made prosperous. And we seek YOUR WILL. 

Abba Father, as we hunger and thirst after righteousness, we thank YOU that YOUR Word promises that we shall be filled.  

So today, as we commit to seek YOU first, we cast every care and concern that we have been holding on to, and we lay them at YOUR feet. 

We look to you LORD GOD as we put our trust in YOU and lean not on our understanding. We seek the path YOU want us to take.  

And we thank YOU for loving us! 

I declare and decree every heavy burden lifted in JESUS great name! Amen, Amen, Amen! 

Grace and Peace to you all! And remember that JESUS IS LORD!!!
