“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” Matthew 6:33
Worry is like a rocking chair: it keeps you busy but it never gets you anywhere. ~Joyce Meyer
so so TRUE!!!
[see Matthew 6:25-34 (do NOT worry)]
“’Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? ‘ So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? “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. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” [Matthew 6:25-33 NKJV]
you do NOT have to be burdened by your TROUBLES or feel PERSECUTED by your SIN!! CONFESS them and RELEASE them unto the LORD… He BORE them (TOOK THE WEIGHT AND PUNISHMENT of them) on the cross so that you may be FREE to carry on in RIGHTEOUSNESS… by His stripes YOU ARE HEALED!!
“He personally bore our sins in His [own] body on the tree [as on an altar and offered Himself on it], that we might die (cease to exist) to sin and live to righteousness. By His wounds you have been healed.”
1 Peter 2:24 [AMP]
Today is another day, UN-PROMISED and UNDESERVED but still granted due to the generous MERCY and GRACE of GOD… CONFESS and REPENT of your [PAST] sins and start this day with a CLEAN heart and RENEWED spirit in the LORD… GLORY GOD!
“If we [freely] admit that we have sinned and confess our sins, He is faithful and just (true to His own nature and promises) and will forgive our sins [dismiss our lawlessness] and [continuously] cleanse us from all unrighteousness [everything not in conformity to His will in purpose, thought, and action].” 1 John 1:9 [AMP]
