Understanding The Importance Of Seeking God Before Anything Else


Everything we allow in the gates of our heart is seed that has an assigned harvest time of curses or blessings. Curses are purposed to keep us from experiencing the joy of the Lord that is found in the  presence of the Lord that is our strength to walk by faith. No seed is wasted because every seed has an assignment to bless our whole person and lifestyle or an assignment to curse our whole person and lifestyle.

This is why we must be content with our current season and trust God to give us our more as we allow His infinite wisdom to direct our thoughts, desires and decisions. Being content in our current season is being content to seek only the kingdom of  God and His righteousness as He adds all things to us that are established in His kingdom will and His right way of living.

We can not expect the harvest time of all things being added to us without us being content to cultivate the seed of  faith by seeking God’s kingdom first and His righteousness, that gives us the mind of Christ to be a good steward of managing all desires being added to us. Being a good steward is being a good manager of God’s holy desires by not allowing ourselves to become tempted by sinful desires. Whatever we seek in life, we implant those desires in our heart until we harvest what and who we seeked first in our life . When we seek we receive the wage of sinful desires which is death and the gift of holy desires which is eternal life. This is the pleasure principle that applies to seeking what and who we desire the most. When all things are added to us all desires attached to those things are added to us, whether sinful or holy.

Psalms 37:4 tells us, “Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.

God’s holy desires of His holy heart purifies our sinful desires to protect us from the cursed law of the flesh where the wage of sinful desire is spiritual death, emotional death, relational death, intellectual death, financial death and ultimately physical death. We are born into sinful desire as we are shaped in the iniquity of the cursed heart (Psalms 51:5) that is desperately deceitful and wicked (Jeremiah 17:9-10).

Our desires outside of God’s desires lead to death because those desires lead us away from the presence of God covering our mind, spirit, soul and body that encompasses our thoughts, words, will, desires, emotions and actions. When we seek first the kingdom of God where holy desires abide, we are able to rest in peace on earth as God’s peace is established in heaven. When we seek first our own selfish desires outside of the will of God, these desires are assigned by the kingdom of  Satan where ungodly desires abide and we end up experiencing hell on earth as it is established in hell.

God’s holy desires protects us to cover us with His Holy Spirit who promotes us in the understanding of how to steward our gift of eternal life that is the gift of God’s infinite wisdom; directing the pathology of our thoughts, words, will, desires, emotions and actions which is directing us to choose the blessed thought, the blessed word, the blessed will, the blessed desire and the blessed action that will manifest the blessed promise of God that is established in us understanding the way God communicates to us.

Our decisions manifest the path of our thoughts, words, will, desires, emotions and actions. Therefore, we must be diligent to protect our heart from seeds that will produce a harvest of curses and eternal death. We must be diligent to protect our heart by abiding in the presence of faith that will produce a harvest of blessings and eternal life that is the manifested promises of God for our life. Whatever seed  we have been sowing in our heart will reveal the evidence of blessings or curses, life or death, therefore we must abide in the presence of God so we can understand how to choose life.

God desires us to choose the path of eternal life where His presence, power, provision and promise are added to us that will attract all favorable things towards us. Satan desires us to choose the path of eternal death where his presence, power, provision and curse abides that will attract all unfavorable things towards us. The path that God or the Satan directs begins in the thoughts of our mind (Proverbs 3:5-6). Thoughts of faith or thoughts of fear. Words of faith or words of fear. Will of faith or will of fear. Desires of faith or desires of fear. Emotions of faith or emotions of fear. Actions that birth manifested promises of grace and truth or actions that birth manifested curses of deceit and wickedness.

In order for us to choose eternal life, we must abide and rest in the presence of His living word of faith unceasingly that is the seed of faith waiting to being harvested to instruct us how to walk by faith where God’s kingdom is established on earth as it is in heaven. Our by default we choose eternal death whenever we abide in the presence of  Satan’s word that is the seed of fear waiting to be harvested to instruct us how to walk by sight where his kingdom is established on earth as it is in hell.  When we walk by faith we are cultivating and therefore working the seed of faith that attracts and commands favorable results when we understand and obey the faith that we hear. The seed, whether it is from God or Satan always calls out and commands the desire it is purposed to harvest revealing the evidence that there is a heaven and there is a hell.

It is important that we purify our hearts by decluttering our hearing so we can understand the holy desire of God. This process starts when we abide and rest in the presence of God’s word waiting for Him to reveal to us how He desires us to obey His living word so we are empowered to understand the Holy Desire of God (Psalms 37:4). When we live our life to seek the kingdom of God and His right way of living first, we protect our heart with all diligence as we are made new in His image and likeness that empowers us to live a blessed lifestyle on earth as His blessed presence abides in heaven.

  1. Amen!! Amen!! This is true we must choose to either pick up Faith or Fear. Either we are going to allow our flesh to lead us into the direction of darkness, are we going to allow the Holy Spirit that dwells within us to lead us into the Light of Eternal Life with our Lord Jesus Christ in Paradise \0/\0/ God Bless you and thank you for sharing. ((Hugs)) 🙂
