God’s economy of Abundance
Are the things you or those around you need or want being abundantly added to every situation of your life? Look at how God’s economy works:
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
AMP – But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides.
For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted to the righteousness of God.
Do you see yourself BEING constantly right before God no matter what you think, say, or do? I want to encourage you to fully submit your mind, heart, body, voice, and actions to the way God sees you. When you seek His Righteousness, you accept the right position before Him that He created for you through Christ’s obedience. Seeking is not a striving to do Right. Seeking is reminding yourself in your thoughts, words, and actions that you are already Righteous, Holy, perfected, and accepted in the beloved before God and that your actions cannot alter that to any capacity.
Notice that when we place ourselves under that state of being, ALL these things Shall be added unto us. Shall is the strongest form of completeness in the Greek. In the previous verses of chapter of Matthew 6, we find that food, clothes, shelter, and money make up all these things.
I encourage you today to start saying over yourself and your situation as often as you can, “I am the Righteousness of God because of Christ’s obedience and nothing I do or leave undone can alter that, therefore, all these things (and then name the things) WILL completely be added unto me, by the grace of God. Amen and so be it.” I think you will be pleasantly surprised how calming and effective that can be.
May you be abundantly added to today from the provision and goodness of God almighty!
