The Key To Having Your Every Need Met

February 16, 2016

“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”

Matthew 6:33

A man was struggling to climb a very tall ladder that leaned up against a wall. The rungs were far apart, and there were people in front of him. But he was consumed with making it to the top. He climbed every rung, stepping over people along the way. When he got to the top, he looked over the wall and saw nothing.

That’s exactly where the pursuit of worldly wealth leads you. Years ago, a book was written by Psychologist Douglas LaBier called Modern Madness. In it, LaBier discussed what the quest for more and more can produce in a person’s life. He suggested that as people pursue wealth more and more, they lose both their self and their personhood.

In other words, when wealth becomes a person’s focus over and above their relationships with others and with God, they essentially check out relationally. They put family and friends on the back burner only to focus on things that, in the end, mean absolutely nothing.

The deepest needs of your life aren’t going to be met by the pursuit of wealth. That’s the lie of the enemy. So instead of searching for happiness in worldly possessions, remember who you are in Christ. Find your identity in Him alone and He’ll meet your every need!

HAVE EVERY NEED MET BY SEEKING JESUS FIRST.
