Give Jesus First Place in Your Areas of Worry

Description

Anytime you worry, it reveals a particular area of your life where you have not given God first place. Discover how to welcome him into your house and give him access to every room.

“Your heavenly Father already knows perfectly well that you need them, and he will give them to you if you give him first place in your life and live as he wants you to” (Matthew 6:32-33 TLB).

Anytime you worry, it reveals a particular area of your life where you have not given God first place. Any area of your life where God is not in control is going to be a source of insecurity and worry.

Welcome Jesus into your house. Give him access to the living room, the bedroom, the kitchen, and all the closets in your life. He already knows what’s in there. In fact, God knows your needs better than you do. You’ve got needs you don’t even know you’ve got. Whenever you bring a need to God, he’s not going to be surprised. He won’t say, “Whoa, I never saw that one coming!”

“Your heavenly Father already knows perfectly well that you need them, and he will give them to you if you give him first place in your life and live as he wants you to” (Matthew 6:32-33 TLB).

When you make Jesus Christ number one in every area of your life, it simplifies your priorities and gives you a lot less to worry about.

Pastor Rick mentioned insecurity in today’s devotional—what other emotions accompany your worries?

Are there things in your life that you love more than God, even if they are good things?

How have any of those things become a source of worry for you? If they aren’t a source of worry, why do you think that is so?
