Matthew 7:7-8 (NET) “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened for you.For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
Rodney had received and understood the message of the kingdom, so when he found that there was unrighteousness in his life, he gave himself to spiritual disciplines till the unrighteousness was rooted out.
Rodney discovered that even though he was now a believer baptized in the Holy Spirit, he had a tendency to be angry, bitter, and unforgiving. This was even now affecting his marriage, so he decided to go on a fast to seek the Lord and find deliverance from these weaknesses. During his fast and retreat, he spent a lot of the time praying, reading, and listening to teachings that the Lord used to deliver him from the power of those weaknesses which he also observed in the life of his father.
As children of God, we have the power to fruitfully seek what we set our hearts upon. We can use this power to either seek the kingdom of God and His righteousness or to seek what the world seeks. The degree to which you would partake and participate in the kingdom of God is the degree to which you have been conformed to the nature of the king in righteousness and holiness. One of the signs that the kingdom of God is in a life or in a place is that there would be righteousness (see Romans 14:17).
Go into today remembering that the most important thing God is doing in your life today is to change you from the Adamic nature into the nature of Christ. The degree to which this change is allowed to happen is the degree to which you will be close to Christ the king and be great in His eternal kingdom.
Prayer: Lord, please help me always seek you and be transformed into your image and nature. Deliver me from deceptions and distractions.
