The Bible tells us that if we seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, God will make sure that we have all that we need to live from day to day. What a relief that is. No longer do we have to chase after the things of this world. Seeking worldly things makes us tired, stressed and often leaves us disappointed. In contrast, seeking God brings peace, refreshment and a sense of satisfaction. It is my prayer that the five devotional messages contained in this ebook will assist you in seeking first the Kingdom of God. I also pray that these devotional messages will help you to break free from your everyday worries. May God bless you abundantly.

As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
My business unit recently moved into a new building because we needed more space. The views from the new building are spectacular. From the higher floors, you can see the towering office buildings of the town center in one direction and breathtaking mountain ranges in the other. One day, as I was enjoying the views, it dawned on me that the higher you are the more you can see the big picture. In the same way, when we turn our hearts to God and seek His wisdom, we begin to see the circumstances of our lives from heaven’s perspective.
Just as the heavens are higher than the earth, the ways of the Lord are higher than our ways. God has a plan for our lives that’s bigger than anything we can think or imagine. We can trust in God’s providence and have confidence that God is working out the details of our lives for our good (Romans 8:28, NIV). God’s Word will not return to Him void and will produce fruit in our lives when we place our trust in Him.
