Peace is the next weapon in our battle.
“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)
In this segment of His sermon, Jesus teaches the disciples not to be anxious about what they will eat and what they will wear. These two things represent basic human needs. Jesus urges His followers to trust in God as their provider. The faithful kingdom servant who is wholly committed to the King does not need to worry or be distracted by the cares of everyday life. Putting our confidence in God means trusting that He will take care of us and provide everything we need. When we trust God, we have the peace. With this peace of God in our lives we will show the greatness of God.
In the wilderness, God taught the children of Israel the same principle of depending on Yahweh for the day’s provision. He fed them with just enough manna to sustain their lives for that day. When they worried about tomorrow by storing food for the next day, that supply of manna would rot. Each day and every step of the way, God’s people must depend on His faithful supply.
The Lord knows we face many circumstances and situations that can cause anxiety in this fallen world. So how can we follow His command to stop worrying about tomorrow? Peace is not worrying about what is happening, peace is planning but living one day at a time.
