Greetings Champions! I have recently come to a better understanding of seeking FIRST the kingdom of God and His righteousness. Not just what it is; but how it plays into the overall purpose of life itself. When you review the model prayer (Matthew 6:9-13) where Jesus was teaching the disciples the WAY (methods and means) to pray; he talked about reverence to the Father and how holy he is. He taught them to ask the Father for His kingdom to come so that His will will be done on Earth, just as His will is done in heaven. He then teaches them to acknowledge that God will give them what they need each day and to FORGIVE THEM AS THEY FORGIVE. He then shows them to lean on God to deliver them from the vices of the evil one; because the kingdom, power and glory belongs to God.
What does this have to do with purpose?
There is only one thing that Christ followers should pray for, that is God's will for their lives be implemented, i.e., seek first the kingdom of God. This means to seek His purpose for your life and walk in that purpose. When this is done, everything else that is needed will be added (Matthew 6:25-34). When you seek the kingdom, your purpose will be revealed, your needs will be met and God the father will be authorized to work fully in your lives. Friends, everything that we do should be without regard to ourselves or fulfilling any of our needs. All that we do, should be to move and walk into the purpose for which God made us.
How do you seek the kingdom?
Learn all that you can on the kingdom of God! What is the kingdom (of heaven, of God)? Who is the king? What is the kings colony? Who are the kings subjects in the colony? What powers have the king bestowed on his subjects? How can the subjects use the powers delegated and when (Keys of the Kingdom)? To have this manifest you have to follow the process as laid out in the model prayer. Reverence God (the Father, source, Holy one) in the things that you do; Ask that his kingdom mandate for your life come and manifest through you here on Earth; thank Him for your daily bread; take the time to forgive those who have wronged you and take the time to forgive yourself for things that you are holding against yourself; seek Him to help you overcome strongholds and offenses in your life; and acknowledge that yor works are for the upbuilding of His kingdom.
