Daily Meditation - March 8

Scripture

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.

Why do you have so little faith? So don’t worry about these things, saying, "What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?" These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs.

And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you.

Matthew 6:25

Prayer

I confess that I worry a lot about what might happen in the future. Even though you have always taken care of all my needs, I still find it difficult to trust that you will do so in the future. Create in me the simple trust of a child. Let confidence in your goodness permeate my thinking and let me be more generous and open with others. Let your love eliminate my fear.
