"Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore do not be anxious, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?'For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you." Matthew 6:25-33 ESV

In today's world there is a lot to be anxious about. Natural disasters, the failing economy, crumbling political, and social structures, just to name a few, can turn the flame up on our stress levels.

Often when we are faced with the challenges that impact us, we look to our own skill set, the advice of others, experts, and so on. Jesus offers us the best way. The surest way. He offers us the Father's Kingdom. Through a saving relationship with Jesus Christ, we become children of God. Not only are our sins forgiven and we receive eternal life--but there is more! We inherit the Kingdom of God. We become recipients of God's power, protection, and provision.

Today when you are faced with a challenge--stop, think, and pray. Seek God's Kingdom. Nothing can overcome His power, provision, and protection in your life.
