DAY 4: LIVING THE WORRY FREE LIFE

dontworry_nivDon’t worry about your needs

Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. (Matthew 6:33. NLT)

Jesus encouraged believers to keep first thing first, and the First thing you have to seek or fight for is the Kingdom of God. God has made provisions for everything you need in Jesus. However, some of us are not receiving because they are not keeping First thing First. They don’t mind the things of God. They are greedy and selfish. When they get up in the morning all they think about is work, family, food, and pleasure. Let us not forget what the Scripture says that “No one will succeed by strength alone.” 1 Samuel 2:9.  Seek first God’s kingdom. (You can read seek first the kingdom of God)

God wants you to live in abundance. Consider the story of Elisha and the Widow. Elisha told the widow to “Go around and ask all your neighbors for empty jars. Don’t ask for just a few.” This tells me that when God is ready to give us more of everything we ask for in Jesus’ Name. The psalmist said in Psalm 37:25 that “I was young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread.” NIV.

Friend there is nothing to worry about as God sits on the throne. He will never leave you nor forsake you. He will supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘what will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, buy your heavenly Father already knows all your needs.” (Matthew 6:31-32. NLT) Among the things you do when you seek God kingdom is you walk by faith.  That is you have faith in him, and in his power to supply all your needs. Jesus never lacked anything on earth because his priority was on God’s Kingdom. He lived His life for His Father in heaven. You can do the same because the same Power that raised Jesus from the dead is at work in you. When you seek God’s Kingdom, I can promise you that you will never worry in this life as you would be connected to your Source. Live the worry free life.
