Compassionate Heavenly Father, I come to You in Jesus’ Name to thank You that as a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, You invite me to bring my anxiety to You during this uncertain, post-COVID time. During this time when we are still unsure of the long-term effects of COVID, vaccinations, and lockdowns, point me to Your Word to gain comfort and rest. Direct me to be an example to those who do not know the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior.
Thank you for this portion of Scripture as a beautiful reminder that I should not worry about tomorrow because You are working all things for good. You want me not to become anxious when the problems of life surround me. Verse 25: “And which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?” Teach me to rest in You, knowing that verse 28 is truth. “If then God so clothes the grass, which today is in the field and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will He clothe you, O you of little faith?”
You tell me that I should not seek after the things of this world, but rather seek after You. I ask You to give me the courage and direction to live in a manner that reflects this truth when anxiety threatens to overwhelm me. I know that You want to provide for all my needs and show me how to correctly use Your provision. Set my heart on seeking the kingdom of God above all else. Verse 31: “But seek the kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added to you.”
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
