Application of the Fighter Verse for September 19/20

Track 24 in Songs Set E – Matthew 6:31-32 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.  (Song includes next week’s scripture in song also. Matthew 6:33-34 But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.)

“Therefore…”

Whenever you see this in the Bible, pay attention!

Jesus says something, therefore pay attention to what he says and what he is about to say.

Therefore, take a look at what Jesus said in last week’s bible memory verse.  “If God clothes the grass…will he not much more clothe you…?”  He goes on  “Therefore,  do not be anxious…”

Or, said another way.  Since God clothes the grass, which is not important to God as you are, he will also clothe you much more.  And, meet your every need.

One of the things Jesus is helping us do is to live out the faith he has called us to.

Often, our professed belief in God does not line up with how we live our lives.  Our doctrine does not get applied practically.

Anxiousness is a struggle of faith.

Are you believing God’s promises for you today?

Practical suggestions this week:

– Medidate upon God’s faithfulness with last week’s and this week’s scripture verses.

– Seek out God’s promises in the Bible and pray through them.  (Click here for a great FREE resource.)

– As you begin your day, pick a promise of God to pray through and hold onto each day as you face trials of every kind.

How will you use this verse in your life this week? with your spouse? your children? your family? your neighbors?
