We live in a consumer-driven culture and it is in a crisis all the time. The society around us is obsessed with things and the comforts of life. People are perpetually tired and worn out, distracted and depressed, irritable and in a hurry. They suffer from stress-induced illnesses. They treat each other poorly. But keep this in mind, the Kingdom of God isn't like that in the least. The resources we need are supposed to come to us in the natural course of living our lives according to God's design and intention.
We do not seek the Kingdom of God because of its benefits, but its benefits come to us as we seek the Kingdom. Remember what King Jesus stated: But seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added to you. The provisions and resources that we need are not meant to become the objects of our faith. they are meant to be the by-products of our faith in the King. Always remember, Kingdom dwellers have faith. Their faith grows as they exercise it daily. True Kingdom Citizens do not treat their faith as a tool or a trick. When they exercise their faith, it is not like playing a slot machine, where if they somehow wind up with the right combination of words and actions, they win. Rather, it is a relationship albeit with an invisible king. This king of ours communicated with liberally with His people, especially through His written Word. he has displayed His laws and His principles and has made them accessible to all who have eyes to see and ears to hear.
Our sole responsibility is to trust and obey His Word. Remember the King gives the gift of the Holy Spirit to those who obey Him. And we are His witnesses to these things, and so also is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey Him. God's Son, Jesus, came to preach the Kingdom of God. That was His first and only message. From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand".
