Luke 12:31-32 – Jesus told his disciples: “Instead, seek his kingdom, and these things will be added to you. Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.”
In these words is a secret that is hidden in plain sight. When we allow worries and anxieties to overtake us, we stumble and fall and resort to our own human will rather than allow God’s sovereign will to take charge in our lives.
Why do we worry? We worry because we do not have faith that we will have enough. We also worry that others will stop us from getting what we desire.
As a result, we get angry—angry with those who stand in our way. We might even find ourselves directing our anger toward those we love, and toward those who may be trying to comfort our hearts.
If we can stop for a moment to calm down. Give ourselves space to reflect. Reflect without anxiety and fear. Ponder on the Lord without worries floating within our minds. Think on godly things. Put aside things that prevent our hearts from feeling God’s love.
God who might be trying to get our attention might have a good message for us. Focus on God and the spiritual things that belong to the kingdom.
Things that concern God’s kingdom might be totally different from what we desire for our own kingdom.
Ask God. Pray. Seek God. See if he has something else within the kingdom for our lives.
Be open to receiving different things that we might never have expected. Such things might result in becoming a huge blessing in our lives.
