What About the Burdens of His Heart?

Most of us believers consider ourselves friends and servants of God, but how much time do we spend seeking the things that are on HIS heart? Did you know Jesus has burdens? Most of my prayer life has been asking for help etc... This is good. Better than self sufficiency. However, I want to take on the things that are on His heart. I want my heart to be like His. This requires me to wait upon Him, to seek Him out, to spend time asking for His burdens etc...

This is what Jesus meant when He said, "Matt. 6:33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you."

Imagine giving all your efforts and energies and attention to seeking first God's Kingdom. I'm not talking about just giving to missions etc.. but truly pursuing His heart. Seek first, and God takes care of the rest. It's much more difficult to seek all kinds of things and add "the Kingdom" to that list. But just seek one thing, and everything else will be added!

What about the burdens of His heart today? Have you asked Him? Have you sought Him? Doing what's on His heart is all thats going to matter in the end.

Father forgive us where we have been so self absorbed. Lord, what about Your desire to save lives? What about Your heart for freedom and justice? God let there be a divine exchange, our desires for Yours, our hearts for Your, our dreams for Yours. Oh lead us into this way of everlasting. Amen
