Lessons from Matthew 13:33 about How to seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness

Lessons from Matthew 13:33 about How to seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness

So last week, we talked about how to build a relationship with God as a continuation of the lessons that we learned from Noah's female relatives (the week before that) regarding why relationships are so important.

Today we're going to be building on all of this by discussing how to put God first by seeking first the kingdom of God and His righteousness- all of which I shared on my Facebook page this week via the (live) video below.

Lessons from Noah's female relatives on How to Build a relationship with God

So last week we started talking about the important lessons that we can glean from Noah's female relatives, especially regarding:

  1. Why relationships are so important

  2. What the 2 key relationships are (or should be) in your life

  3. Why you need to develop your relationship with yourself in order to better receive the 2 key relationships (mentioned above)

If you missed that, you can catch that here.

One of the key relationships that I mentioned last week was our relationship with God. So, continuing on from that, this week I talked about the 5 steps that we can take to build our relationship with God today- all of which I shared on my Facebook page this week via the (live) video below.

Lessons from 3 Biblical women on How to Abide in God

Last week, while talking about what The Woman with the Issue of Blood teaches us about how to live by faith, I mentioned that one of the things that she demonstrates about living a life of faith is that it requires steadfastness. I mean the fact that she waited 12 years to be healed and never gave up hope says it all, right?

Right!

I then went on to say that this whole concept of remaining steadfast reminded me of John 15:7, a scripture that I had literally been studying obsessively recently, which says:

"If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you"

But- because I had other points to get through- I couldn't break this scripture all the way down the way I wanted to; so I promised to do it later.

Well, lovely, this week I did!

And not only did I talk about 3 different strategies regarding how to abide in God, I also talked about not 1; not 2 but 3 different female Biblical examples of this. Namely:

  1. The Woman with the Issue of Blood

  2. Sarah 

  3. Anna
