But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
This morning is filled with a list of phone calls and appointments and inquiries that are urgent. Time is short for finding these solutions so if I can’t wrangle each of these down I need to regroup and find other targets. I have come to dread this part of the job.
So, with all this on my mind it’s hard not to feel guilty about spending time in the mornings on this study until I remember, there is nothing more important than time in the Word and with the Word.
In fact, the anxiety building over the work before me can only be calmed in this very place.
O you of little faith, your heavenly Father knows that you need these things.
This morning Lord, I am here to hear Your words and place my trust in you. Here are my lists and fears. Let me walk away from this time and face the challenges of the work you have given me. But let me leave the concerns in Your hands.
Today I will “set my foot” upon the land you have promised to give. Today I relinquish anxiety and chose to be strong and courageous for you have said: “the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go”. In the name of the Mighty One, Amen.
