Spiritual Warfare: 'Put God First and He Will See to Your Needs'

God's Power for Our Battles — Thursday, April 4, 2024

Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. So don't worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today's trouble is enough for today.
— Matthew 6:33-34 NLT

Today's Prayer

Lord, I confess my past fear and worry. I have fretted over money, retirement funds, and the pursuit of earthly possessions much more than I have fretted over people around me who are dying and going to hell. Much of my past life has been focused on building up my own kingdom instead of Yours. Forgive me. When I begin to repeat this pattern, Lord, remind me to trust You; remind me of Your promises to provide for my needs. And let this reminder cause me to rest and have peace in Your Words. Let this lead me to share my faith and Your provision so others can find that same rest. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
