While driving I had a thought, “This truck does not have a mind of its own.” I thought of letting go of the steering wheel and letting the truck decide where we would go. If it had a mind of its own I could do that and just enjoy the ride, seeing where it would lead; being surprised by the destination.
But the truck will only go where I steer it.
God gave us a steering wheel to help us navigate through life. It is an over-riding message that should permeate every area of our lives so that no matter the situation we can steer in a way that helps make sense of the circumstance and leads us to victorious thinking and an overcoming spirit.
“But seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added unto you. Matthew 6:33.
Here is the very first thing we should be looking for. It is the lens we should always be looking through. It’s the steering wheel that should guide our navigation; to seek God’s Kingdom in every situation and circumstance. And in our seeking to do what is right according to God’s definition of righteousness.
My mind should only go where I steer it.
No matter what I face, good or bad, to say, “Where is God’s Kingdom in this, and what am I to do?”
My first priority, always, to seek His Kingdom and righteousness.
