Jesus wants us to have an abundant and fulfilling life! The key to achieving this is seeking God’s Kingdom above our own desires. Constantly striving for what we think we need leads to stress, worry, and misery – we will never arrive! If we instead trust God’s provision and do our best to love Him and those around us, we will experience a much greater satisfaction than anything this world can offer.
Questions for further thought:
1. What have you been striving for that you need to set aside or trust God to manage?
2. How can you trust God’s provision in a tangible way?
Challenge: Ask the Lord how He wants you to engage His Kingdom. Take a risk and do that thing today that requires trusting God. Often the only way to increase our faith is to let Him have an opportunity to provide!
