WP: 101 – Solving the World’s Problems, Pt. 1 – 3 credits

31 “Do not worry then, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear for clothing?’
32 “For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.
33 “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
34 “So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Matthew 6:31–34 (NASB95)

Worry about food, clothing and shelter. This is one of the few skills I am world-class at. Or was. Anyway I still struggle. My guess is, if Jesus addressed it, He must have felt it was widespread, if not universal.

What was His solution? “Seek His kingdom and His righteousness. . .” The King of the kingdom is Jesus. He is our Lord. His righteousness was given to us at the cross. He is our Savior. So, if we seek first – Jesus, as Savior and Lord – He promises something amazing: He will personally take responsibility for supplying our needs – “all these things will be added to you.”

When I trust Jesus my negative stress goes to zero. Challenges become positive stress. I am able to think clearly and plan and execute that plan. I am not a victim of my circumstances. And I have a Friend who goes with me to guide me and work behind-the-scenes to provide for me and mine.1

Confess your sins to Him. Turn from them and trust Him to save you. He will provide for you. And He will be your heavenly Dad, Brother, and Friend.

1 Yes, I still have to work; just as the bird has to work for the worm God provides.

I became Seriously Mentally Ill at age 18, ten years later I got and took the right meds, I accepted Jesus, and my recovery began.
