Strength for today–Matthew 6:25-34

Strength for Today is a song about looking to God to meet our daily needs. Jesus said, “These things (daily needs) dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your Heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and He will give you everything you need. So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.” His promise to us is that if we seek the interests of God’s kingdom above all else that He will provide for our needs along the way. I wonder if it’s like those people who stand behind the sidelines at a marathon and hand off bottles of water to the people running by. The runners don’t need to chase after those water bottles, they just need to keep their focus on the race. Imagine how much more tired they would be if they tried to hunt down every bottle of water while at the same time trying to win the race!
