Genesis 18:16-19:38 ◊ Matthew 6:25-7:14 ◊ Psalm 8:1-9 ◊ Proverbs 2:6-15

God's Promises - NT:

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

Matthew 6:33 (NIV)

7 "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.

Matthew 7:7-8 (NIV)

God promises that He will provide all "these things" - what to eat, what to drink, what to wear - if we will only place our trust in Him, and seek His kingdome and His righteousness. The ironic reality is that even when we choose the contrary, in all of our worrying and working we can never provide for ourselves as well as God provides for us, if we only let Him.
