Seek First is a 21 day course to help believers intentionally do what Jesus commanded in Matthew 6:33 " But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well."
Founded : 2017
Mission : Prayer so often starts with our agenda in mind. When I was convicted to "seek first the kingdom of God", I spent considerable time searching for Scriptures dealing with just this topic. This app is meant to keep those Scriptures in one place for frequent consideration that we might meditate on his law day and night (Psalm 1).

Seek Before Trouble
Remember your Creator
in the days of your youth,
before the days of trouble come
and the years approach when you will say,
“I find no pleasure in them”—
1 The Lord is my light and my salvation—
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
of whom shall I be afraid?
4 One thing I ask from the Lord,
this only do I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
and to seek him in his temple.
5 For in the day of trouble
he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent
and set me high upon a rock.
Prayer focus: Ecclesiastes 12:1 is a pivotal verse that goes unpracticed by many believers. The idea here is to get to know the Lord and his ways before trouble breaks out. Far too many of us wait until the other shoe drops before we start working on our prayer life. In contrast, David writes Psalm 27 and we see his belief that the light of his life and his salvation had been shown to be God, not his circumstances. As a result, when he found himself in the day of trouble, there was no question in his soul who would keep him safe. Don’t miss verse 4 of this Psalm today. David had grown to the point that the one thing he asked of God was to dwell with God. What is the one thing we keep asking of God?
Nugget: It is easier to build shelter in sunshine rather than in the rain.
Seek HIS Will
2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.
20 Now may the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, 21 equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
Prayer focus: The process of seeking the Lord involves meditating on his word until it seeps deep into our minds and hearts. Soon our will is no longer what drives us. Our minds are renewed to see our life and our world through the lens of God’s word or his revealed will. Seeking the Lord also means asking God for wisdom which he promises to give generously. There is no doubt that competent men and women may achieve much on their own. However, as Dwight L. Moody was told by a friend “The world has yet to see what God can do with a man fully consecrated to him.”
Nugget: God’s will is woven into our lives by spending time with his word and with Him in prayer.
Seek in Humility
2 Has not my hand made all these things,
and so they came into being?”
declares the Lord.
“These are the ones I look on with favor:
those who are humble and contrite in spirit,
and who tremble at my word.”
6 Though the Lord is exalted, he looks kindly on the lowly;
though lofty, he sees them from afar.
50 His mercy extends to those who fear him,
from generation to generation.
51 He has performed mighty deeds with his arm;
he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts.
52 He has brought down rulers from their thrones
but has lifted up the humble.
16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.
Prayer focus: Pride in what we have accomplished is actively resisted by our Father. Search your heart for pride and confess it. Let us tremble at his words with respect to pride. Today remember that we all need a savior. We should never look on those outside our faith as any different from ourselves no matter what behavior we see. We are all sinners in need of God’s grace.
Nugget: We did not choose God, God choose us while we were still sinners.
Seek His Joy
18 A certain ruler asked him, “Good teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?”
19 “Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good—except God alone. 20 You know the commandments: ‘You shall not commit adultery, you shall not murder, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, honor your father and mother.’"21 “All these I have kept since I was a boy,” he said.
22 When Jesus heard this, he said to him, “You still lack one thing. Sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”
23 When he heard this, he became very sad, because he was very wealthy.
19 Jesus entered Jericho and was passing through. 2 A man was there by the name of Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax collector and was wealthy.3 He wanted to see who Jesus was, but because he was short he could not see over the crowd. 4 So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree to see him, since Jesus was coming that way.
5 When Jesus reached the spot, he looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, come down immediately. I must stay at your house today.”6 So he came down at once and welcomed him gladly.
7 All the people saw this and began to mutter, “He has gone to be the guest of a sinner.”
8 But Zacchaeus stood up and said to the Lord, “Look, Lord! Here and now I give half of my possessions to the poor, and if I have cheated anybody out of anything, I will pay back four times the amount.”
9 Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham. 10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.”
19 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."
Prayer focus: These two encounters with Jesus provide a spectrum for us to measure our own walk. Are we abandoned to the cause of Christ no matter what it costs? Is our faith located in the amount of wealth we have in this life or are we free to love God where ever he leads? One thing is for sure, Jesus and Zacchaeus were happy at the end of the day, the rich young ruler went away sad.
Nugget: The progression of the believer is to move from saved to well-educated in tenants of the faith. A few move from well educated with the Scriptures to totally abandoned to their life in Christ. Only the latter produces lasting joy and hope.
Wait Upon Him
17 May the beauty (favor) of the Lord our God rest on us;
establish the work of our hands for us—
yes, establish the work of our hands.
3 Commit to the Lord whatever you do,
and he will establish your plans.
12 Moses said to the Lord, “You have been telling me, ‘Lead these people,’ but you have not let me know whom you will send with me. You have said, ‘I know you by name and you have found favor with me.’ 13 If you are pleased with me, teach me your ways so I may know you and continue to find favor with you. Remember that this nation is your people.”
14 The Lord replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”
15 Then Moses said to him, “If your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here.
Prayer focus: Moses was a man of prayer. He spent days with the Lord counseling and inquiring for direction to lead the nation of Israel. Seeking the Lord meant waiting on God’s direction. He knew that without the blessing of God, plans would ultimately fail. It is possible for unbelievers to have success in business or family life. But for the Christ follower, we are instructed to wait on the Lord for direction. We are told to commit our ways to the Lord that our plans would be established. We can have God’s direction as well, if we wait on him.
Nugget: Waiting on the Lord is easy when we Stop everything and worship.
