A New Year – An Everlasting Promise

Jesus said, Do not be anxious… But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you (Matthew 6:31a, 33). As Christians we know we should trust God in everything, but as sinners we do worry.

God sent His Son Jesus and sacrificed His life for the purpose of saving us from our sins. Jesus rose from the dead defeating sin, death, and the power of the devil for us. By faith we know this to be true, and yet we worry, or doubt, and even ignore this great story of salvation in our daily journey through this life.

Today and every day, by God’s grace, let’s follow His direction, seeking first His kingdom, and trusting in His promises. In this gift of faith, we will find peace and true joy!

Each day we are given opportunities to seek His kingdom and share Jesus with others. How may we do this? One way is to sign up for free Mustard Seed Daily email devotions at http://www.lwml.org/mustard-seed-devotions. Check out all LWML devotional resources at http://www.lwml.org/program-helps.
