"But continually seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be provided. So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will take care of itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."
One of the biggest steps in our walk with God begins with trust. Do we really believe that God will do what He says He will? In our rational thinking it makes perfect sense to trust God. The conflict many of us have is our rational thinking doesn't line up with what we really believe in the core of our being. How we believe life really works.
Our God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow because God is a God of Truth. God's truth never changes. This is how we have the three persons of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit and yet they are one God. There is no separation in the truth of Jesus and the truth of the Father and the truth of the Holy Spirit. They are One in Truth. It is the truths of man that change with new knowledge, social acceptance and political movements.
As we seek His kingdom, which is a spiritual kingdom of righteousness, peace and joy on the earth today, He gives us all the mercy and grace we need to grow and learn how to apply His truths to our life. The better we become at applying kingdom principles in our life we will notice they have a tangible effect on the world around us. It takes the effort of exercising our will is to constantly practice putting our God in the center of everything we do.
As we practice applying the truths of God we are learning towards our choices and lifestyle, we can trust God to lead us and help us grow out of any wrong thinking we have or have picked up along the way. All the while, God is teaching us His values and putting His character in us. We are being transformed from who we were with all our baggage of lies, our wrong thinking and self-deceptions into the man or woman we have been created to be all along.
Even though we are growing to express godly love and extend grace to our fellow man and as our thinking about ourself and others improve we must never forget that we have no righteousness of our own. We wear Jesus righteousness, always and His alone. It is Jesus, our advocate and defender, who presents us innocent of sin to our heavenly Father.
