Seek first the Kingdom of God. Let His righteousness do rightness all around you. For, understand, when those come to oppose you – lift up His right hand, His Word, against that. For His left hand will sustain you, and His right hand will give you the direction of counsel, by His Spirit.
For He is raising up a people who are hungry to seek His Kingdom, hungry to taste of the Kingdom, and hungry to rule in the Kingdom. Understand and meditate; dwell upon His Word.
Seek His face, for when you seek Him with your whole heart, absolutely, positively, unconditionally, you will find Him. For you must realize, He presents Himself to you, for His Kingdom is among you, and His Kingdom is within you. Change citizenships. Think of His Kingdom. Understand, as His Kingdom representative.
Demand the rights of His Kingdom, but be humble enough to understand you serve a King – the King of kings – who came and walked among His own as a carpenter.
As a citizen of His Kingdom – knowing His knowledge, knowing the authority He has given you in His name -- use it with His Spirit, for He will not leave you alone, but He will direct, lead, counsel, and anoint you. For He has called you to do the works of His Kingdom.
"God knew what He was doing from the very beginning. He decided from the outset to shape the lives of those who love Him along the same lines as the life of His Son. The Son stands first in the line of humanity He restored. We see the original and intended shape of our lives there in Him." - Romans 8:29 The Message
