But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you (Matt 6:33).
God requires us to search within to get answers for any situation we are confronted with. Just like the scripture above states that all we could ever ask for or need is in the kingdom of God within us. That kingdom is the Spirit of God that we receive once we become born again and God expects every Christian to seek it first above every other thing. The scripture says, “Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?” (Matt 6:25). A man that truly and sincerely has the kingdom within will not be bothered or worried about worldly possessions or blessings.
This is because a man who seeks the kingdom of God has every other thing added to him. He will lack nothing as long as he lives. God created everything on earth within six days; on the seventh day He rested and has not done that type of work since then. He created man and any other person that came after that was reproduced except Jesus. Every man that is alive came out of somebody else; every tree came out of another tree. Therefore, the manifestations of your life must come out of something within and already in existence.
Every discovery you see comes out of something already in existence. For instance, advancement in technology means that the existing one is about to give birth to a better and more advanced one.
Same thing happens when a man experiences increase, it comes from bringing something out of what is already in existence. That is building on what you already have. There is a groaning going on in creation that wants to give birth to something new every day. You must know that whatever is in existence in your life today is crying and groaning to give birth to the next new thing. This is what is called desire. This is what makes a rich man want to make more money. Desire simply compels you to do more, it is never satisfied. That is how God has created man, to be fruitful and multiply.
As Christians that desire is the kingdom of God within that yarns to know the will God and His purpose for your life.
Therefore, a seed that is dropped into the ground springs into activity to bring about a multiplication of itself and so is everything else in life. The urge to live life itself is in the desire to increase in every stage, no matter how small the change. Consequently, the acquisition of something further leads to a desire for more. Increase is in what you have and not in what you don’t have. Thus, a Christian that does not have the kingdom within will go after dreams or desires that are short lived. So do not despise your relationship with God, what you have or where you are now. Rather be grateful to God for it because whatever you will become will be built on that relationship and His kingdom that He has placed within you.
