I hear Him

Seek First is a prescription for anxiety

Why is there a "but", because there is a comparison.

What is the Comparison?

The difference between 2 sets of people

1. Gentiles - sinners

2. God's Children - Jesus Followers

What is the Difference?... Priorities

1. They strive for their desires first (basic needs)

2. Followers strive for God's desire first

Why is there a difference?... Faith

1. Faith in self - I am in charge - prideful person

2. Faith in God - Deep abiding Love of God - God cares about you.

What is the outcome?

1. Self reliance leads to anxiety

2. Faith leads to contentment - the Apostle Paul in

Philippians 4:11-13 says: 11I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
