“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you” (Matthew 6:33 NKJV).

The Kingdom of God is the realm in which God’s will is fulfilled. As we seek spiritual food, through reading the Bible and prayer, we seek the Kingdom of God. We learn His will and the Spirit of God helps us surrender to His leadership.

When we have a need in the natural, it defies logic to look for a spiritual answer, yet it is what fulfills us in every area. We should seek spiritual food before physical or emotional food. We can trust God’s provisions in every aspect of our lives. Our need for Him is greater than our need for anything else. The key is to seek His righteousness, not ours.

Looking at our own righteousness hinders us from abiding in God’s. We realize our unworthiness, our falling short of His glory, and question whether we deserve to have Him to meet our needs. His Kingdom and His righteousness go hand in hand. We are in right standing with God because of what Jesus Christ has done for us on the cross. This reality leads us to rest in Him. We can trust His provisions because of our position in Him. God honors our hunger for Him, from glory to glory.
