Start With Finding Jesus

Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.

Matthew 6:33 NLT

Are you worried about something? Do you have concerns that exceed your capacity? What is weighing heavy on your heart? Where can you find a solution?

Start with finding Jesus.

It’s best to acknowledge the Lord in all your ways and trust that, although you can’t see Him, He is in absolute control. Then, align your life with His will. That’s called submitting to God. The world doesn’t understand it and cannot do it because it doesn’t know God nor recognize His authority.

Start with finding Jesus.

The first step in any endeavor should be humbling yourself and recognizing your complete dependence on the Lord. We need faith to live this life of obedience to God’s will. Without faith, it is impossible to please God.

How much of our religious effort is simply man made traditions? How much of it is led by the Spirit? God is not a system. He is a living being. Walking with God means having an ongoing relationship through prayer in your daily life.

Prayer is simply having a conversation with God. Take turns allowing each other to speak. If you leave space to listen, you will hear Him speak.

Some of the best prayers are questions. God, what do You want me to know today? Where do You want me to go? Who should I bless today? Where are you leading me? Ask those questions and then wait for His reply. Then obey. That will please God.

Start with finding Jesus.

He will take care of everything else. Walk humbly with your Lord and experience the abundant life.

Speak Lord. Your servants are listening. Amen.


“For the Lord will scatter you among the nations, where only a few of you will survive. There, in a foreign land, you will worship idols made from wood and stone—gods that neither see nor hear nor eat nor smell. But from there you will search again for the Lord your God. And if you search for him with all your heart and soul, you will find him.

“In the distant future, when you are suffering all these things, you will finally return to the Lord your God and listen to what he tells you.”

Deuteronomy 4:27‭-‬30 NLT
