Glory to God! What an awesome day!!!
Now, you may notice that I speak on both meditation and health but preference is given to meditating on the word of God. Why is that? It is because it is what keeps our health intact.
We need to be mindful of our health for in so doing we will function more effectively in the kingdom of God. If we sincerely focused on the kingdom instead of on self, that is being “me” focused, health would be of concern to us.
As I entertained this thought I began to inwardly see myself as totally abandoning all that I am to God. In doing this I had seen that even my desire for wanting food to be a certain way or for food to taste a certain way, was abolished. I had seen myself as not going after the food just for the taste but for the benefits that it would afford me. After I had that thought I was upgraded in my thinking. This went beyond me looking to function more efficiently for the kingdom of God - this was about my obedience to God and his word.
This is what the word of God meditated upon does. It feeds you and gives you perspective in the things of God. It gives you both counsel and guidance.
Jesus demonstrated obedience to God’s word above food when he was tempted in the wilderness.
“Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.” -Matthew 4:4
After Jesus passed the temptation to disobey God he walk in the power of the Spirit (Luke 4:14).
Here is today’s meditation:
*** *** *** ***
God wants you to be concerned about the kingdom NOT things. Things are not the priority.
The THINGS are an added benefit of one seeking the kingdom of God and his righteousness.
If you seek the things, you may get the things BUT with the added stress, the use of your own resources, use of your time and energy. Whereas if we just seek his kingdom and his righteousness we do not expend energy unnecessarily. We actually save our resources, Time and energy.
Jesus said that his yoke is easy and that his burden is light. Here in Matthew 6:33 it is demonstrated. Don’t waste time on the things - get to seeking now!
