Seek God First

Samuel Dhinakaran
14 Dec
Anything apart from God will result in failure.  Good success follows anyone who gives God the first place. Yes, when your eyes are fixed on righteous ways giving God priority in everything that you do, He will certainly bless you with His manifold blessings. Bible assures, “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us” (Ephesians 3:20).  Here is a narrative about a simpleton who rose up to be a great businessperson.

Anthony Rossi immigrated to the United States from Sicily at the age 21; unable to speak any English, without formal education, and with no money or connections to help him get started in America. Anthony Rossi went on to own many businesses and to eventually take over a small orange juice company in Bradenton, Florida.  Through innovation, creativity and tenacity, transformed it into the industry leader, Tropicana.  He grew Tropicana into the largest fresh-chilled orange juice company in the world and donated millions to further the work of Bible schools and missionary services. What birthed all these? Anthony, after selling his New York City grocery business, began reading the Bible and attending the church.  He then began to daily commune with Jesus Christ, subsequently taking everything to the Lord in prayer. He began to give God the glory for the solutions to difficult problems and the development of new ideas. In turn, God took Anthony Rossi’s willing heart and developed him into a servant-leader who employed God given talents to benefit others and to be useful for God’s work in the world. In a “Town and Country” magazine in 1983, he was named as one of the top ten most generous living Americans. “Seeking God” became the primary objective of Anthony Rossi. 
What is your objective  today? Whatever you do, do it to honour God. For a man with godly intentions, God will remove every lack and fill him with His pure riches. Does not the Bible say, But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away (1 Corinthians 13: 10). Submit yourself to seek His kingdom every day.  Walk in His light and be the benefactor of His showers of blessings!
Prayer:
Dear Lord,

I thank You for the encouragement through these words.  I surrender myself to seek You always.  Help me to listen to Your voice and obey Your commandments.  Give me new ideas that would prosper me and my family.  I submit all my lacks to You.  Let me see Your grace flood into all such areas.  For Your glory, make me a display of Your grace.  Give me Your wisdom.  I receive all the hidden blessings that You have for me.  In Jesus’ name I pray,

Amen.
