Κύριος Notes:You Have It Covered

Matthew 6

25"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?

Lord Jesus you were there when thousands were feed by your hand. Yet there were times when you were hungry and thirsty. Life is so much more than the next meal or the clean clothes that I am sitting in right now.

If you feed people who were just in the crowd that day listening, how much more will you continue to care for those who have trusted in you for all of life’s needs?

26Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27Who of you by worrying can add a single
hour to his life

Lord Jesus you care the birds who don’t doing any prudent planning, I am sure that you can take care of me through out life’s transitions. All of my concern does not really do anything, then why does anxiety dog my steps sometimes?
28"And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' 32For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.

Lord Jesus--Running after things that will end up in the trash does not make sense…worrying about the next step when you have faithfully lead up to this point does not make sense. You are able to lead, even when the way seems dark to me and my steps hesitate. You are still there Lord Jesus guiding my hand even when I am unaware of it. In fact, it may be in those times when I am unaware of your presence with me that you have more freedom to work. It is then that you are not bounded by my expectations and limits.

33But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Seeking your kingdom first, Lord Jesus is what you call me to. Help me to seek your leadership in this day.
