Commentary from Pastor Mike White:

“Do not worry about your life…” (Matt 6:25). Easier said than done, right? The more we focus on NOT doing something, the more we think about it. So how do we avoid worry? By thinking about something else, of course. More specifically, Jesus tells us that when we seek His Kingdom first, He will take care of all our material needs (Matt 6:33). As New Testament Christians, with the right to boldly come to the throne of grace (Heb 4:16), we should be pursuing God all the time. We should be including Him in all our major decisions. When it comes to our lives, we have the right to ask God what’s coming. God is not trying to hide His Will for your life. He wants you to seek Him so that you will find it. Abraham made time to fellowship with God, and God did not hide what He was about to do (Gen 18:17). Amos 3:7 says that God does nothing without first revealing His plans to His prophets. So, how do you avoid worry? Ask God what He has in store for you. Pursue Him in prayer. You will be amazed at His answer.

Prayer:

“Father, I ask that you speak to me about my life. What do you want me to do? Where do you want me to go? How can I honor You in everything I do? Help me to have full confidence in the revelation that when I seek You, I will find You. Help me to find peace and avoid worry by giving You all my attention.”
