PROVISIONS | blessed and thankful
What are you most anxious about today? Is it your health? Finances? Family? These are worthy of your concern, but have they become more important to you than seeking first God’s Kingdom? Go to the Lord in prayer and ask Him to help you prioritize your anxieties, that you might honor Him first, and let Him take care of the rest.
But seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be given in addition to you. Matthew 6:33
This is one of the most popular and often-memorized verses of the New Testament. Jesus is teaching about God’s providence. While we spin and sew to make clothes, the flowers are even more beautifully “dressed” without doing a day’s labor. We toil and harvest to make and grow food, yet the wild animals have plenty to eat without ever having to boil water. If God takes care of the flowers and the animals, will He not, even more, take care of us, the pinnacle of His creation, the ones to whom He gave dominion over the created order (Genesis 1:28-30)?
So why are we always so anxious about everything? If we know the Lord and recognize His sovereign hand over all of creation, why do we fret about our lives?
In this Sermon Series, Pastor Johnson lifts Wisdom from the Sermon on the Mount to encourage a reprioritizing of our relationship with God. The benefits are many including knowing where your help truly comes from! All of our provisions come from the Lord.
