But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. (Matthew 6:33)

Kingdom is a paraphrasing of King dominion. There are many kingdom with all kinds of kings dominating in their kingdom. But there is a special king dominion that we are to seek. We are to seek first the king dominion of God. When God commanded that we should seek for something, it means it is for our own benefit. Yielding to the grace of salvation through faith and obeying the precepts of righteousness are some of the steps of seeking the kingdom of God.  Therefore it is imperative that we seek for the king dominion of God wholeheartedly with all our hearts and our mind.

Secondly, in every kingdom, a king is ruling there. In this King dominion of God, God Almighty is reigning and ruling there. That is why we need to know and clearly identify the king-dominion we are pitching our tent under. If you pitch your tent under the canopy of Almighty God, Who is the Awesome King of the Dominion of Heaven, and also the Creator of the whole universe, that is the smartest decision you can ever make for yourself on earth. By this you are rendering the greatest services unto yourself.

Also you are directed to seek the righteousness of the king-dominion of God. This is the secret of blessedness. If you live righteously, you strategically positioned yourself in the spiritual receptivity for the immeasurable blessing of God. Living in righteousness simply means, living in love and kindness towards humanity for the glory of God. The reason, is that, it is in our services towards humanity we can express our righteousness and holiness unto God. It also means living in holiness, not leaving any room for evil and besetting sins that are common in our society and our age. It means eschewing all the abominable practices, habits and thought in our mind and spirit in order to provide a conducive room in the temple of God in our body for the indwelling presence of Almighty God. “Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.” (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)

That is why we should first seek to identify ourselves with the dominion and characteristics of Heavenly King as well as the righteousness prescribed by the Heavenly King. The assurance of His blessings is real, all other [good] things shall surely be added unto us.

Prayer: O Lord, endow me with desire to seek your kingdom and your righteousness so that I may partake in the blessings that you have earmarked for the faithful elects in Jesus name, Amen.
