Have you ever stopped to consider the question, “What is God’s Kingdom and how does it relate to me?” That is a big question! Yet, at its root, it is quite simple: God’s Kingdom is where He reigns as King! At a first glance, this answer may seem insignificant. But it sheds incredible light on the command Jesus gave in Matthew 6:33, to seek God’s Kingdom.
The life of a believer is not to be one lived in fear and anxiety about having their basic needs met. Why? Our Heavenly Father, Who is the King of kings, is more than able to provide for the citizens of His Kingdom. It is for this reason that our primary responsibility is to seek the King’s will in all we do and to carry it out. This is the secret to a successful kingdom! When a kingdom operates in this manner, not only does the kingdom prosper as whole, but so do the individual lives of each citizen. So it is in God’s Kingdom.
As believers, we are no longer bound to serving the fears and worries of the kingdom of this earth. Why? Because we have been set free from it by the finished work of our King, Jesus Christ. In Him, we have a completely new life, citizenship and values! If we desire to experience the fullness of this new citizenship, we must seek God as our King in every area of our life. As we do, He has promised to supply our every need!
