Seek First…

Good morning, Precious Family:

I pray you are in a blessed place in your mind, heart, and spirit. I pray that each decision you make today, no matter how big or small, is saturated in God.

If our mind is focused on the things of God, each moment, our steps and decisions will be ordered by the Lord. If we keep our mind on the things of God, we will not have to worry about what will happen because we know and understand that God is with us.

Scripture of Direction

Matthew 6:30-34

Today’s passage is taking from The Message Bible (A modern day translation)

30-33 “If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers—most of which are never even seen—don’t you think he’ll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you? What I’m trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God’s giving. People who don’t know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.

34 “Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.

Song of Worship and Direction

If you seek the Living God, peace and purpose will surround you. Grace and mercy will follow us, and the Holy Spirit will dwell inside you. What more could we ask? Keep your eyes, mind, and heart focused on Him.

Until we meet again, please know that I love you with the amazing and everlasting love of Christ Jesus. Amen.

Your sister, in Christ,

Rev. Marcia Davis
