Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 01/20/13

This week’s scripture is from Matthew:

Man holding arms up in praise against a sunburst“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness…”    (Matthew 6:33a)

Everyday seems to have its troubles and challenges, the trials of work and dealing with busy lives; the things that try to overwhelm us or get beyond us keep cropping up; we are harried and hurried; we long for peace and rest; weariness overtakes us. Yet we were never meant to take on this life on our own, for we are children of the Most High God. We are not meant to tackle life alone, but we charge forth in our own strength against the giants of life, too often seeking Him only when we have no strength left, yet His word says to seek Him first. O Lord, let us learn to always seek you first, in every circumstance.

May you ever remember before anything else to seek the Lord first each day.
