A KINGDOM CURE FOR WORRY

The lyric of an old song goes, "don't worry, be happy." Most of us know that is easier said than done.  Worry or anxiety is an emotion that we all are challenged with from time to time.  Some more than others.  If it is carried to the extreme, it can cause critical health issues such as a reduced immune systems, high blood pressure, elevated blood sugar, ulcers, and others.

The battle with anxiety can be exceedingly difficult to overcome by natural or medical means.  Jesus had such a concern for us regarding this common struggle that He addressed it directly in His Sermon on the Mount.  Matthew 6:25-34 gives us hope and a promise regarding worrying about this life.  He says that if God gives attention to the needs of the birds and flowers, how much more will He do for us regarding our needs.

Jesus tells us not to worry, "But seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and He will give you everything you need (Matthew 6:33)."  The word "seek" in this verse means to keep on keeping on until one has obtained.  What is Jesus charging us to diligently seek after until we have obtained it?  The Kingdom of God and His righteousness.  It has been said that the Kingdom of God is where God has rule and reign over all areas of our lives.  His righteousness can be defined as the divine standard God has established for mankind's actions and attitudes to be in right standing with Him.  Jesus is telling us if we will first seek God's rule and reign in our lives and live according to His divine standards, we will have everything that we need.  That is truly a kingdom cure for worry. ~ God's Blessings, protection, and favor to all.
