The Kingdom of God will not just drop into your lap. Jesus said it takes passion and the willingness to press into God's Kingdom in order to see its benefits in your life. Seek first the Kingdom of God, then all these things will be added to you. Jesus said that once John the Baptist came on the scene preaching with the power of the Holy Spirit, people were willing to overcome big obstacles to hear him. Since that time passionate people have pressed in to receive and experience the Kingdom of God. Jesus compared it to a battle where violent people take the things of God and enter into His Kingdom by force. How determined are you to experience God's best? What obstacles and excuses are you willing to push aside so that you can lay hold of everything God has made available to you?
And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.— Matthew 11:12 (NKJV)
