Some Things Need Repeating

By 3:33:00 PM , , , ,

"So do not worry about these things, saying 'What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?' These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father know all your needs. Seek the Kingdom above all else, and live righteously, and He will give you everything you need."
Matthew 6:31-33 NLT

"Therefore do not be anxious, saying 'What will we eat?' or 'What will we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For gentiles seek after these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you."
Matthew 6:31-33 ESV

"So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' for pagens run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
Matthew 6:31-33

This verse is featured in March's  Loved + Blessed subscription box; and for me it hits the spot. Currently my noggin is see-sawing with the notion of 'Where shall I live' as my lease is about to expire, and with it my living situation is about to change. Also, it amuses me as I asked a someone only yesterday (as they seem to know me better than I know myself at times) what helpful advice they would give me and they say I (still) worry too much, and worry doesn't give you anything. In which I retorted, adult acne.

For some people the ability to blanketly accept all things, and not mull over a thought, action or what-have-you comes easy. Others of us, may have to actively seek to train our brain to not think or more so refocus on something productive.

In 31 Rays of Hope I actually wrote a devotional on this topic (day seventeen), here are some snippets from that entry that has served as a helpful reminder to me and in-turn I hope you as well.

It’s just simply this: has God ever failed you? No. Then
why do you worry? It is trick of Satan to get our minds
off God, from trusting that He is ultimately in control.
When we worry about a particular subject, we are more
apt to make our own moves instead of waiting on God to
move things for us. With the increase of technology in
our everyday lives (which has been proven to increase our
stress levels), we sometimes even put our faith in electronic
devices rather than the Creator of all things.

Yet, worry does cross our minds, but instead of dwelling
on that which troubles us we are commanded to simply
not partake in that way of thinking. Instead we are to go
to God with our fears, hand them over and cease fretting
(Philippians 4:6).

Dear heavenly Father, thank You for Your peace. May
You fill our hearts with the fullness of Your love. May we
feel Your Spirit inside of us, ever reminding us that You
are in control. You are the One with the master plan, Who
knew us before we were born. May we grow closer to You,
putting our trust in You more and more each day. May
we submit our lives to You daily, knowing that You would
never bring harm to our lives, that there is nothing You
would put us through that we cannot handle because You
are our ultimate strength. In the name of Your Son, Jesus
Christ we pray, Amen.
