Matthew 6:25 therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?
Matthew 6:33 but seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
I am getting on the bus for Quest in 8 days and as usual the week leading up to Quest, well actually the Whole 30 days of prep always boils down to this. I am so busy am I supposed to be going on this event? How am I going to make this work? I get it from all directions. I prayed about this, so I know I’m supposed to be going. Then little mini Roadblocks start appearing, they’re almost like potholes. I can choose to go around them or drive right over them. That’s the anxious part. (stay on the right path, the potholes are where the growth is,) the part where I start thinking about oh I’m very busy. Am I really supposed to be going? I mean I don’t even have time to follow up with the emails that the questers are sending out. I just have so much to do. I don’t even have any business going on this event, I’m just so busy. (nothing but excuses. Did you find time to watch your favorite TV show?)
I find when I start thinking that way. that I’m just so busy. I have taken my eyes off Jesus. And that’s just the beginning. I will find myself questioning myself? Did I really hear God? am I really supposed to be on this Quest? It doesn’t necessarily have to be Quest it could be anything that I heard the Lord on. What is the Lord telling you to do that you are not doing?
That one day a couple of months ago, when I knew what I heard was Him. Why am I now questioning that? Why does it feel that sometimes my life? My busyness? My ………..?
Why do I choose to let my busyness get in the way of my relationship with the Lord and what He wants me to do? Why do those things seem to get in the way when I’m prepping to go on Quest? I mean this is important, we are talking about lives that are going to be altered. I’m going to be the first one to admit that during the 30 days of prep I have not been “all in” even though I said I was. I wanted to believe I was all in, but I am just fooling myself. Poser!
I could almost say that’s how my life is. I am not always “all in” but I am getting better at it.
My name is Kevin and the spirit of the Lord is upon me I have been anointed to preach the good news, to heal the sick, to bring recovery of sight to the Blind, and to help set the captives free. Most importantly this is the year to proclaim the Lord’s favor. Luke 4:18
Today I choose to seek the Kingdom first!
2 Peter 3:8 But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.
So today I have 1,000 years of favor in front of me you do the math.
Today I’m all in!
