A-5. Matthew 6:25-30 Recap - Session 7 Let’s continue with the rest of the verses of Matthew 6:25-34; I will recap verses 25-30 for you:

In Matthew Chapter 6, verses 25-34, Jesus is telling us not to worry about our life – not to worry about what we are going to eat, drink, or wear (v25). Jesus goes on to say, that God feeds the birds, and we are MORE important, than they are. Therefore, God WILL feed us too! Jesus also said that God clothes the grass of the field, and will give us clothes too (vs26-30). Jesus then tells us, if we are worrying about our lives (what we are going to eat, drink and wear), we have LITTLE faith (last part of verse 30) or unbelief, as Jesus says in the first part of Matthew 17:20 - KJV.

II. Main Scriptures: Matthew 6:25-34; John 14:1,27; Philippians 4:6-7; 1 Peter 5:6-7:

A-5. Matthew 6:31-34 - Session 7 In verse 31 of Matthew 6 (NLV), Jesus tells us again, “Do not worry. Do not keep saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or, ‘What will we drink?’ or, ‘What will we wear?’” Jesus said in verse 32, the people who do not know God, are looking for these same things; Jesus assures us that our Father in Heaven, KNOWS we need these things – God knows what we need BEFORE we ask! We MUST trust Him; God will give us our heart’s desire in His time – AS LONG AS IT LINE UP WITH HIS WILL!

Jesus lets us know in verse 33 of Matthew 6, what we are to be seeking after; we are to SEEK the Kingdom of God and NOT things in verses 25-32! Jesus said in verse 33-NLV, “First of all, look for the holy nation of God. Be right with Him. All these other things will be given to you also.” In other words, give your life completely to God; seek His Kingdom and NOT the things of the world (Matthew 24:35) – become righteous by giving your life to Jesus, the Righteous One (1 John 2:1; Romans 3:22; 2 Corinthians 5:21)! Jesus is the One Who laid down His life, so we could live (1 John 3:16; John 10:18; John15:13)!

I invite you now, to give your life to Jesus; accept Jesus as YOUR personal Lord and Savior (click here to accept Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior)!

Then Jesus tells us in Matthew 6:34, not to worry about tomorrow either – DON’T worry about ANYTHING! Jesus covers it ALL; He told us what not to worry about in Matthew 6:25-31, 34! This is what Jesus said in verse 34, “Do not worry about tomorrow. Tomorrow will have its own worries. The troubles we have in a day are enough for one day.”

Worrying stresses us out and cause all kinds of health issues (click here for “Stress Symptoms"). Especially, when we worry about today and tomorrow problems together! We CANNOT EFFECTIVELY serve and obey God, when we are stressed and worried; walking around FULL of anxiety!

Jesus has given us a remedy for worry in Matthew 6:33; seek God’s Kingdom FIRST, instead of worrying about what we are going to eat, drink, and wear (Matthew 6:25-31)! THEN, once we are right with God, He will give us EVERYTHING else we need, without us asking; He ALREADY know what we NEED, BEFORE we ask (Matthew 6:31-33)!!
