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.
