[QTVOTD] Do not multiply your concern into worry…

“But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides. So do not worry or be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will have worries and anxieties of its own. Sufficient for each day is its own trouble.” Matthew 6:33-34 ->me: I started in verse 24 today. The verses following this and up to my Quiet Time verses above are all about 2 primary things: 1) Do not serve the things of the this world; neither the things you have or the things you don’t. 2) Do not worry about the provisions of life (food, shelter, or clothing). BUT! First seek God’s Kingdom and Righteousness…THEN, all of these things will be given to you. What impressed me most this morning (even though I have read this passage many times) is that He needs to be my sole desire and that I need to be learning and applying His way of doing things and living His truth. Only when I do this will He take care of all of my NEEDS (not wants). Additionally, God’s provision for my needs does not guarantee a life without problems. However, I should not multiply my trouble ahead by worrying about it. God knows about these things ahead and I can trust Him to both deal with them and give me comfort and peace and through them when the time comes. Notice how today’s points build on yesterday’s teaching? Yep, this is how God continues to work in my life.
