But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. (Matthew 6:33)
Dearly beloved, the Lord promises to provide for those who trust in His goodness. He comforts them, “…Do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink” (Matthew 6:25).
One day, I was going through all the letters that I received that day. A particular sister wrote, “Brother, I am weeping for the past 23 years. I have absolutely no peace in this world. I have four children. We have nothing to eat. We are shedding only tears.”
“My husband is addicted to alcohol. He is doing witchcraft against me and my children. On account of that, I am losing my memory quite often. Even if I try to love him, I am unable to do it. How long can I live like this? Please pray for me.”
The Bible says, “An anxious heart weighs a man down…” (Proverbs 12:25). Worry and anxiety cause depression. Worry is a tool used by the devil to torment people. But the Lord says, “Do not worry. I will make you a special person.”
The Bible recounts, “As Jesus and His disciples were on their way, He came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to Him. She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what He said. But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made.”
“She came to Him and asked, ‘Lord, don’t You care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!’ ‘Martha, Martha,’ the Lord answered, ‘you are worried and upset about many things, but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.’”(Luke 10:38-42).
Even today, you must accept Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour. Leave all your burdens at His feet. Then He will transform you into a special person. The Lord Himself has said, “Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well” (Matthew 6:33). Seek the Lord with wholehearted devotion and yield yourself to carry out His will in this world. Then He will generously provide all you need.
Loving Lord Jesus,
You are good. I seek You with wholehearted devotion. I leave all my burdens at your feet. I trust in your goodness. Bear my burdens and offer comfort to my weary soul. Fill my heart with your divine peace. I yield myself to carry out your will in this world. In your generosity, provide all my needs and make me glad.
In Your matchless name I pray.
