Luke 12:29-31 “And don’t be concerned about what to eat and what to drink. Don’t worry about such things. These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers all over the world, but your Father already knows your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and he will give you everything you need.

I’m not going to worry this year! This will alleviate a whole lot of stress for you this year. Don’t sweat the small stuff and realize that it’s all small stuff. Last year I allowed my focus to come off of God’s Kingdom and onto my own condition. I lost momentum because I invested too much time into worrying.

This year I’m making a concerted effort to seek God’s Kingdom first! How do you seek God’s Kingdom first?

  1. By doing what he called you to do. Jesus told Peter, “if you love me then feed my sheep!” When you take care of God’s sheep then God will take care of you.
  1. By helping the poor. He who lends to the poor will be repaid by God.
  1. By helping the least of these. Jesus said, “When you do unto the least of these you also do unto me!”

When we seek God’s Kingdom first his promise is that we will have everything we need. The Lord is my shepherd I have everything I need. Jesus says, “Don’t be afraid little flock! God is going to provide everything you need!” That’s good news! This is the year that I walk in peace because God is going to give me everything I need. Right now I want you to speak this out loud: I am not going to worry because God is going to give me everything I need this year!

Glory!

Dear God,

Bless the person who just made that proclamation. Release everything you had stored up for them that fear had kept from them. By faith release their blessing! We believe that you will provide our every need according to your riches in Glory!!

In Jesus Name,

Amen
