Matthew 6:25-34 Therefore, I say to you, take no thought about your life, what you will eat, or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body than clothing?
26 Look at the birds of the air, for they do not sow, nor do they reap, nor gather into barns. Yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much better than they? 27 Who among you by taking thought can add a cubit to his stature?
28 “Why take thought about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: They neither work, nor do they spin. 29 Yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not dressed like one of these.
30 Therefore, if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is here and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
31 Therefore, take no thought, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 (For the Gentiles seek after all these things.) For your heavenly Father knows that you have need of all these things.
33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be given to you.
34 Therefore, take no thought about tomorrow, for tomorrow will take thought about the things of itself. Sufficient to the day is the trouble thereof.

The opportunity to worry is greater than it ever has been, but even in the midst of a chaotic world, God calls His people to not worry, but to trust Him by having faith in Him alone.
Jesus command is the same today as it was when He gave it to His disciples those thousands of years ago, "WORRY NOT".
The call is to believe that God is able to supply all of our needs according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus. In other words, have faith in God and trust Him instead of sickening yourself with worry.
Instead of worrying about the what if's, how and when, seek God and cast your worry on to Him for it is the Lord our God who promises to take care of His people.
1 peter 5:7-Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.
Anxiety and worry adds nothing, but takes away everything.
People of God, let today be the day that you put "worry" out and welcome in "faith" over fear.
Today is the day that with your WHOLE heart, you "TRUST" God in spite of what your eyes may see or your ears may hear.
Faith over worry is the place that God is calling His people to on today.
People of God, we are more valuable to God than anything He created.
The birds does not sow, nor do they reap, nor gather into barns. Yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much better than they?
God even causes the flowers to bloom, the lilies of the fields to grow, clothe the grass and they neither work nor do they spin. Would He not take care of you?
People of God, we are valuable to God, therefore, He is listening to hear from us on today for He promises that if we seek Him first, He will supply ALL things needed in our lives.
King David gives us a peek at God's love for humanity when he asked this question in Psalm 8:4 What is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?
People of God, worry not for tomorrow will worry about itself.
Faith over worry is your DARE challenge on today. Go out and do it!
