Matthew 6:33 teaches us to seek God first, and all “these things” shall be added to us. I used to think of this verse in terms of literal things. And maybe sometimes it is about physical items. Lately, however, for me it’s more about peace and joy and just being in the moment without worrying about what comes next. Such a hard thing for me to do, but I find that as I truly seek God and surrender, He is teaching me how to live in that space.
In my current devotional study I’m learning more about abundance and expectancy. I’m learning how different those two states of being are than I thought they were. I’m learning they go hand in hand.
My meditation this week is John 10:10
The thief comes only to steal, kill, and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. (NIV)
