We are all familiar with verse 33 – seek ye first the kingdom of God and all these things will be given to you. But verse 34 – Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
The first thing that popped in my mind was the song – Don’t worry! Be happy! It’s hard to be happy when you are worrying whether your needs are going to be met. The first verse says if we seek God (do the things God requires us to do, ask Him for help, turn to Him when things get hard, depend on him) He will provide us with all our needs. The next verse says not to worry about tomorrow. We are to focus on today one day at a time.
Many of our frustrations come from trying to figure out what we are going to do next week. How we are going to make this work or how we are going to make that work. That’s not what we are required to do. All God wants from us is TODAY. He wants us to commit TODAY. He wants us to work TODAY. He wants us to love TODAY. He wants us to move TODAY.
When you bring your focus back onto today’s issues, the pill isn’t as hard to swallow. Yes, the bills are going to be there. The stress is going to be there. The lack is going to be there. But right now, you are breathing. You have life. He’s providing you everything you need. Breathe in, Breath out, Smile and Be Happy. What can you do right this moment to make it better? Then that’s what you do! But DO NOT WORRY! and DO NOT QUIT!
Until Next Time,
