“But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides” (Matthew 6:33 AMP). In most realms of governance, at its head is one that exhibits authority and power over its citizenry. In fact, history has taught us that the concept of governance (as we now know it) began with the ancient Greeks in their creation of the Polis. In hot pursuit of ideals of freedom, the Polis (Greek city-states) galvanized the Greeks into a sense of safety and security from the threats of warfare and enslavement. Citizenship of the Polis extended those notions by granting privileges, exclusivity and social status to the men that submitted to the conditions set forth by the......

Let's begin with a recap of the previous blog: According to scripture, we understand that God has given us all wisdom and knowledge that is hidden for us in Him (Colossians 2:3). Therefore we have the privilege of possessing spiritual principles to learn and build our faith upon. Likewise, in order to receive our wants and needs from Christ Jesus, it is imperative that we follow His specific instructions that He has provided for us in the Word of God. “But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides” (Matthew 6:33 AMP). For many of us, we find it difficult to navigate our blood-bought rights and privileges. We are admonished in scripture......
Introduction about our kingdom benefits (part 3)

“But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides” (Matthew 6:33 AMP). Thus far we have understood that God is the Supreme Ruler of His Kingdom by which we were made citizens through the born-again experience of choosing, accepting and confessing that Jesus is Lord over our lives. In fact, this act of faith makes us His children with access to the resources, benefits and virtues to mature in relationship with Him and bring forth His purposes in the earth. It's similar to when you start a new job for a new company. We've all been there. Remember those awkward moments of learning company culture. The times when you're trying to figure......
The ultimate benefit package

“But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides” (Matthew 6:33 AMP). Recently, I watched a movie and one of the characters described memory as a precious gift to retain and store information for circumstances of our greatest necessity. The words are still etched in my mind even now... “Memory is the scribe of the soul” . Such a statement captures the essence about the power to recall and its ability to reach the depths of the human spirit. It is within this thought that we will discover God's plan to shape our identity by remembering the essential benefits He has provided for us through Jesus Christ. And the purpose: to NEVER......
A call to humility

“But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides” (Matthew 6:33 AMP). It's been just shy of three weeks since my last blog and I've been agonizing through the many distractions that were designed to prevent me from writing to God's precious ones in this season. In the span of time I've confronted rejection, family strife, a family member diagnosed with cancer and a recent health challenge. As I settle into a new “normal” , God's faithfulness keeps me sheltered in His peace while I fight fear, sorrow and a myriad of emotional strain. He reminded me that I'm an earthen vessel, frail and subject to a fallen world......
The kingdom of god and his righteoousness (part 6)

“But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides” (Matthew 6:33 AMP). Greetings Saints of the Most High! As I perused my previous blogs written on this subject, my thoughts quietly reminded me that the Kingdom of God and His righteousness contain the core principles that unlock our understanding to realizing our full potential within the Body of Christ. As members of God's Army, by activating this potential we position ourselves to advance and take territories and kingdoms for our Savior and destroy the powers of the kingdom of darkness. As Jesus was fulfilling His ministry assignment in the earth, He first demonstrated what the Kingdom of......
