This year promises to be a good one if we walk in obedience to God's principles. Make Him the first priority in our lives this year. Matthew 6:33 says "Seek first the kingdom of God and all His righteousness and all these things will be given to you as well." What things? Read the previous verses from verse 25.
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 than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look 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? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[e]?28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin.All the things that we get anxious about are promised to us if we seek FIRST God's kingdom and ALL His righteousness. He doesn't say there won't be difficulties. He doesn't say the economy will improve. He doesn't say there won't be challenges. What He does say is that we should seek His kingdom and His righteousness first and He will take care of us.
29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.
30 If 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—you of little faith?
31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’
32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.
Peace and Love In This New Year as You Follow Christ.
