“Seek ye first the kingdom of God and all these things shall be added unto you.” (Matthew 6:33). Jesus just wants you to just love him first of all. “Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks; I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:  and hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name’s sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted. Nevertheless I have some what against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.  But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.” (Revelation 2:1-7).( Many Scholars believe that the deeds of the Nicolaitans that Jesus hated were compromising with the world, and pagan religions, and the occult, also forbidding to marry and have children, which the Bible says is a doctrine of devils.SEE: 1 Timothy 4:1-4)  Just take one day at a time. The Lord said; “Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.” (Matthew 6:34). There is enough to take care of today, why borrow from tomorrow’s cares. Commit tomorrow in his hands. Mark Twain said; “most of the things I worried about never happened anyway.” If you worry about something too much you can cause it to happen. “For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me.” (Job 3:25) “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.  Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.” (Philippians 4:8,9). Remember, God spoke Creation into existence, “And God said; It is good.”  You can speak negative or positive things into existence just by talking about them. You can also think things into existence by dwelling on negative thoughts. Worrying is not trusting. Worrying is a form of worship, because you are giving your thoughts, time, and energy to whatever your worrying about. Worrying is the devils distraction. The Lord will give you grace for the trial at the hour of the trial, not before. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him and he shall direct your paths,” (Proverbs 3:5,6). Have faith in God. Expect a miracle today! God does miracles every day. Big and small, sometimes behind the scenes, and we don’t even see or realize it. Take time with the Lord to pray and listen to him. “And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying this is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.” (Isaiah 30:21). “Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil. For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the Lord, they shall inherit the earth. For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be. But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.” (Psalm 37:7-11). “Be still and know that I am God.” (Psalm 46:10a.) Ask someone to help you watch the kids or whatever else you are so involved in, so you can take a little prayer and Word time. You will find that you won’t be so uptight, and you’ll be more relaxed and refreshed, and renewed.

Say this prayer to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I  believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
