“Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” Matthew 6:31-33 NKJV
Jesus in the above Scripture points out another thing we should do instead of worry:
2. SEEK FIRST GOD’S KINGDOM
The Kingdom of God is (a) “a sphere of God’s rule; (b) the sphere in which, at any given time, His rule is acknowledged” Vine’s Complete Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words.
To seek first God’s kingdom in all matters is to acknowledge His rule as the only option; to view His say as what counts; to make His desires the subject of our affection and obligation etc.
How are you faring in seeking first God’s Kingdom? Judge for yourself.
Your journey towards seeking first God’s kingdom goes hand in hand with obeying His Word. When you read the Word, you find out what God wants to see done in the earth, and you ‘seek first His kingdom’ by making a priority of doing that.
How does this dispel worry?
Since Jesus does not have any track record of lying, you can be rest assured that He’ll sort your needs, as you’ve made His desires yours. You can remind Him of your faithfulness when contrary situations threaten (Isaiah 43:26). “Subjects of the kingdom are the objects of the care of God” Vine’s Complete Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words.
God bless you
