Daily D – Matthew 6:25, 33
“Therefore I tell you: Don’t worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Isn’t life more than food and the body more than clothing? . . . But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be provided for you.
MATTHEW 6:25, 33 (CSB)
Every heart knows its own concerns. Fear returns every day to scare us with worries about something we may lack. This includes jobs and income, homes and clothing, automobiles and a sense of status.
Jesus here reminds us to place first things first. When we focus on what is most important, when we take care of that bit of business, downstream needs are always supplied. You may have heard it said, “Where God guides, God provides.” This is more than a proverb, this is an enduring truth.
It was true for Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. It was true for David and Daniel. It was true for Peter, Paul, and Mary. It was true for John and James and Jude also. It will be true for me, and it will be true for you.
Replace your worries with prayers of trust. When you are tempted to look at what you might lose, turn your focus toward what cannot be lost. Knowing and experiencing God means, as the Shepherd King put it, “The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.” I shall not be in want. I shall not lack. I have all I need.
Matthew 6:34 says, “Therefore don’t worry about tomorrow, because tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
1. Don’t worry about today.
2. Don’t worry about tomorrow.
3. Don’t worry about what you need.
4. Trust God now and always.
I will trust God for today, tomorrow, and forever.
Our Father, you know what we need. We trust you to do for us what we cannot do for ourselves. Empower us to live with confidence and contentment today. We belong to you. What more do we need? Amen.

Jeremiah 35:12-14 “This is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says: Go and tell the people of Judah and those living in Jerusalem, ‘Will you not learn a lesson and obey my words?’ declares the Lord. ‘Jehonadab son of Rekab ordered his descendants not to drink wine and this command has been kept. To this day they do not drink wine, because they obey their forefather’s command. But I have spoken to you again and again, yet you have not obeyed me.”
Psalm 78:70-72 He chose David his servant and took him from the sheep pens; from tending the sheep he brought him to be the shepherd of his people Jacob, of Israel his inheritance. And David shepherded them with integrity of heart; with skillful hands he led them.
Jeremiah 23:20-22 The anger of the Lord will not turn back until he fully accomplishes the purposes of his heart. In days to come you will understand it clearly. I did not send these prophets, yet they have run with their message; I did not speak to them, yet they have prophesied. But if they had stood in my council, they would have proclaimed my words to my people and would have turned them from their evil ways and from their evil deeds.
