THEME: SEEK GOD FIRST
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the LORD and depart from evil.”
-When king David gave instructions to his son Solomon regarding building of the temple and his kingship, he said to him, “As for you, my son Solomon, know the God of your father, and serve Him with a loyal heart and with a willing mind; for the Lord searches all hearts and understands all the intent of the thoughts. If you seek Him, He will be found by you; but if you forsake Him, He will cast you off forever” (1 Chronicles 28:9). According to the advise it is key to note that God searches the heart and its intensions. It is from the hearts that evil thoughts:- murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander (Matthew 15:19). It is therefore vital to guard our hearts because from out of it flows flows issues of life. Fear and worry comes from the hearts and for this reason God instructs us to trust in Him wholeheartedly. To securely rely upon His wisdom, strength, power, might and goodness, grace, love and promises. God is Wonderful in wisdom and excellent in guidance (Isaiah 28:29). When we seek God first, we rely on His strength, wisdom and understanding, as we fear Him and depart from all evil.
