Scripture of the Day - January 3, 2012

Philippians 4:6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

This phrase "be careful for nothing" means don't be anxious. Paul is trying to convey to us that if we put all our trust in God then He will take care of us. Jesus told us the same thing when he walked the earth. Seek ye first the kingdom of God...if the Father in heaven is watching over the sparrow then He is surely watching over us.
Let's cut right to the chase here...when you fret and worry you are NOT trusting God. In fact, when you fret and worry you are interfering in God's plan for your life, you are meddling in what God wants to do for you. You are taking control and not allowing God to work in your life. You are disobeying God therefore you are sinning! God told us to busy ourselves seeking His kingdom and He will supply all our needs. But we tend to do the reverse...we busy ourselves attempting to supply our needs while neglecting the things of God.
Let's start this new year really trusting God. Let's seek His kingdom first in all we do and reap the bountiful blessings He has in store for us.
