The following is George Muller’s take on Matthew 6:33. These are words I need to memorize and recite daily.
“Where anxiety begins, faith ends. When faith begins, anxiety ends.”
And remember the words of Jesus:
“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you” (Matt. 6:33).
What “things”? we ask. By “things” the Lord was talking about all the stuff we worry and fret and give ourselves ulcers about: money (Matt. 6:24), our house (Matt. 6:25), what we will eat and what we will wear (Matt. 6:31), the future (Matt. 6:34). Makes little sense to worry about things the Lord promises to take care of, doesn’t it?
If we are “children of God” and “joint heirs with Christ” (Rom. 8:16-17)— then worry is a sin, a form of blasphemy. Worry is assuming a responsibility that God did not intend for us to have. And worry, is the opposite of faith.
I don’t want to live in the clutches of fruitless worry any longer. Do you? If not, come join with me in believing the truth of Matthew 6:33.
