From Worry to Worship

“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” (Matthew 6:33 nkjv)

Awhile back I was driving somewhere with my wife when we realized that I lost both my cell phone and wallet. We decided to try the phone using its “find my phone” feature. And sure enough, it showed up at a certain spot. There was my phone, with my wallet next to it. So we scooped them up and gave thanks to God.

We sought those items out. We were going to find them, no matter what. That is the idea of putting God’s kingdom first. Jesus said, “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble” (Matthew 6:33–34 nkjv).

If you don’t want to live in anxiety, fear, and worry, then put matters in God’s hands. Don’t give up on this. Seek it above all things.

How do you do that? Make your faith stronger. Grow in faith by studying and believing the Word of God. Your faith grows by hearing God’s Word and acting on it. Romans 10:17 says, “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (nkjv).

When we listen to God’s Word, it puts everything in perspective. We see God for who He is. And we see life with all of its challenges for what it is. We see everything as we ought to see it.

Instead of worrying, put God and His Word first in your life. Seek Him principally above everything else. Give Him priority.

All too often we turn to people for help and forget that we need to turn to the Lord. So place it in God’s hands, and trade your worry for worship.
