For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life? … Do not worry then, saying, "What will we eat?" or "What will we drink"' or "What will we wear for clothing?" For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
With God on your side, what is there to be anxious about?!
Don't you think you matter more to God than a bird or a flower matters to Him? He takes care of the birds and the flowers, and He will take care of you, too. There is just one prerequisite to this peace-giving provision: put Him first in your life!
