The seek first his kingdom stuff is perhaps not too difficult on sunny days. Today though disciple I want to encourage you to lean into it all the harder when the storms are raging.
There’s a strong temptation to hit pause on both the private pursuit, and public service of, the King, when it’s all hitting the fan.
“I’ll pick this stuff up again when things have settled down” we tell ourselves.
I think this is a mistake.
Not only do storms tend to hit with alarming regularity, it’s also true that we will find our comfort somewhere, and if it’s not the King, it’ll be another.
If it is the King, we’ll find He’s actually quite well equipped to lead us through storms, (he’s done it once or twice before apparently). And we might just find that as we continue to serve out of our brokenness, we experience a strange measure of healing.
Even Jesus, when the devastating news of his cousin’s murder was brought to him, leaned in and arguably saw a marked increase in the quality of miracle he was performing. You might just find the same.
Disciple, seek first his Kingdom (in the midst of the storm), and all that you need will be added unto you.
