“Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you (Matthew 6:31-33 NKJV).
Do not worry and seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness. Jesus did not suggest we do this, He commanded. Why? Because our Papa knows all we need before we need it, but the one thing we need most is Him. When we put Him first, before all things, everything else falls into place and into order. Prioritizing our relationship with Him first gives us the perspective to prioritize our earthly needs, wants, and to-do list.
Often we can get stuck in a Martha mindset (Luke 10:38-42), busying ourselves with all that needs to be done or fulfilling our needs. Yet, Mary chose to sit at the feet of Jesus, drinking in every word, savoring His presence and busying herself in enjoyment of Him. When Martha told Him to tell Mary to help her, Jesus said Martha was worried about many things and Mary was doing what was needed.
Doing what is needed is seeking first God’s kingdom, His presence, His power, His glory, His direction, all that He is. Sitting at His feet, drinking in every word He speaks, savoring His presence and busying ourselves in enjoyment of Him then opens the door for provision for every need we have. Put Him first and watch everything else settle into place.
