Don’t Worry, For He Knows

Many of us are familiar with the popular scripture and song which says, “Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness.” Those are good words, but what about the scriptures prior to, which read,

“Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your Heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.” – Matthew 6:31, 32 NKJV

We all have many needs. Everyone needs food in their bellies, clothes on their backs, roofs over their heads, and something to quench their thirst. To take it a step further, everyone wants and needs money in their pockets; that dream job they crave, a spouse and happy marriage, etc. But on this lists of things, where is Christ on ours. Is he a priority. Are we longing to be with Him? To be like Him? Do we desire Heaven?

God hears what we’re asking for. He knows what we desire. What we really need. I still learn time and time again that those things come to us when we make Christ our priority. When we positively build up our character. When we do right by others, just as He would, then in time He will provide our needs.

“Seek first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you”- Matthew 6:33 NKJV

I was born on January 31, 1992. I graduated from Austin Peay State University in December 2015 with a B.S. My major was Communications, with a concentration in Print & Web Journalism. My minor was English, with a concentration in Creative Writing. Writing is my passion. I’m a book lover. I prefer to to be called a Booklion rather than a bookworm. Why- lions are mightier.
My first love is Jesus Christ. I was raised in the Seventh-Day Adventist Church. No we are not a cult. We are Christians who worship on Saturday.
I have been stuttering since I was four, but through Christ I have persevered through it and will continue to do so. I’m not thing with Him.
Singing is another passion of mine. God blessed with me with the gift of song, which I am grateful for.
