Under Gods Command:

Mathew 6:33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

 To “seek first his kingdom and his righteousness” means to turn to God first for help, to fill your thoughts with his desires, to take his character for your pattern, and to serve and obey him in everything.

Lets Bring it Home: What is really important to you? People, objects, goals, and other desires all compete for priority. Any of these can quickly become most important to you if you don’t actively choose to give God first place in every area of your life.

 Matthew 14:29 “Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!

Peter started to sink because he took his eyes off Jesus and focused on the high waves around him. His faith wavered when he released what he was doing.

Lets Bring it Home: We may not walk on water, but we do walk through tough situations. If we focus on the waves of difficult circumstances around us without looking to Jesus for help, we too may despair and sink. To maintain your faith when situations are difficult, keep your eyes on Jesus power rather than on your inadequacies.
