33 “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and a all these things will be added to you. “So do not a worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Ask and it will be given. Seek and ye shall find!
One day at a time. This is hard for me, because I am always planning ahead. When things don’t go right, I get frustrated. Its OK to plan, but I need to remember, that each day, God reserves the right to change HIS plan (Important to remember, who’s plan it is). Also, thinking that each day is fully surrendering to God and the direction he needs us to take. Hope your direction is straight and true, in the path, that Jesus, would want you to walk. If it is, then there should be no worries. Have a blessed day.
“So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Matthew 6:34 NASB
Lord, may our hearts humbly bow before you, in persistent prayer. May we be alert, to the needs of others, so we might lift them up. Reveal yourself to us, through answered prayer, even though it may not be, what we wanted the outcome to be. May we always remember, that you care about us and love hearing our petitions.
Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving;
COLOSSIANS 4:2 NASB
Nourish your soul, today, meditate and delight, on God’s Word. You will not be disappointed. May we be filled with his spirit, today, that we may shine a light, on the Living God, who walks with us daily.
When my anxious thoughts multiply within me, Your consolations delight my soul.
Psalms 94:19 NASB
Are you satisfied at what you are pursuing to find fulfillment in your life?
Delight yourself in the Lord ; And He will give you the desires of your heart.
Psalms 37:4 NASB
The things of this world are temporal, but the things of the LORD are eternal. We find joy when we accept and pursue and shower ourselves in God’s promises.
- We are forgiven,
- We are called sons and daughters,
- We are loved perfectly,
- We have a perfect father,
- We are perfect through Jesus work on the cross and his resurrection,
- We have a helper who guides and directs us
- We have God’s word that always gives us wisdom to walk fearlessly in a lost and decaying world.
- We also have a home that is being prepared for us to spend all of eternity, in a place where there will be no sorrow.
Can I get an Amen?
Where is Your Hope Placed?
Why are you in despair, O my soul? And why have you become disturbed within me? Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him, The help of my countenance and my God.
Psalms 42:11 NASB
Gut check time. Look at what you are focused on and where you are placing your hope. Is it time to refocus.
Practice makes perfect, discipline builds character, and focus keeps your priorities straight.
Read Hebrews 12. As an old baseball player, I always call this keeping your eye on the ball.
May the Lord richly help you today, in your tests and trials.
Perfect Love Casts Out Fear
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love.
1 John 4:18 NASB
There is a fear that is healthy for those who do not fear God. There is eternal consequences, for those whose hearts are hardened, by their own selfish desires.
For those who see clearly, that Jesus sacrificed all for those who believe in him, they are made whole, through his death and resurrection. We are not seen as lacking, but by his amazing love, we need have no fear. Our slate is wiped clean. Not by anything we have done. How wonderful is that to ponder every day, and bathe in his marvelous Grace. We are free to serve him and others, in joy and peace.
Thank You Jesus
Love conquers a multitude of sins.
Therefore I, the prisoner of the Lord, implore you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, showing tolerance for one another in love, being diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
Ephesians 4:1-3 NASB
How do we relieve stress?
When we throw off everything that drags us down, we are freed from a heavy load. We must turn to Jesus, and not our false idols and dreams. Jesus is the one who will ultimately allow us,to fulfill all that we are set on this earth, to do.
I’m not saying in any way that this is necessarily easy, but certainly rewarding!
casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.
1 Peter 5:7 NASB
