You all know my desire and passion to get all of us in the Word every single day. What better way to use my space here on the Internet than to fill it with Scripture.
Every single day, I will have a new scripture on the blog, sometimes with thoughts about it, sometimes with questions for you to ponder, and maybe sometimes just the scripture itself. But no matter what, I am vowing to publish Truth each day so no matter who comes to this space, can find a treasure. There are no greater words to read than God’s very own words.
So while I will still be publishing my usual blog posts and podcasts, I will also have a scripture each day right here on the blog. I pray this blesses you and encourages us all to get in the Word each day. I also hope the scripture I share here is NOT a substitute for sitting down and opening the Bible yourself…but perhaps a reminder, an encouragement, or a starting point. Ultimately, there is no substitute for getting into His Word each day.
Let’s all vow to be seekers of Truth! Let’s start simply…seeking Him.
Matthew 6:25-34 (ESV)
“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
“Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”
This has been our life passage. Little did we know when we chose it to be read at our wedding, how it would follow us through our marriage.
Today, more than ever, I know that the only way to live is to seek Him first. Not things. Not what others say. Only Him.
When we seek Him first, everything else in our being flows from that point. And we can trust Him to provide all of our needs (not necessarily our wants) when we truly seek Him above anything else.
What are you seeking today? Do you seek other things above Him? How can you remedy that and follow after Him before any other thing?
