Look Behind You

 29 “And don’t be concerned about what to eat and what to drink. Don’t worry about such things.30 These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers all over the world, but your Father already knows your needs.31 Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and he will give you everything you need. Luke 12:29-31


The people of the world spend a great deal of time thinking about their needs and how they will be fulfilled. They chase after the things of this world. They worry about so many things.

 But when we obey the Lord and put Him first in our lives blessings chase after us.

Picture a race. We are running as fast as we can toward the Lord and coming up fast behind us and catching up with us are blessings. Take a moment and have a look at Deuteronomy 28:1-14. I call it the blessing scripture because there are so many blessings in it.

 So we as faithful followers of Jesus take our eyes off the things of this world. We follow the Lord and blessings will catch up with us.

 Jesus is Lord!
