Daily Devotional Luke 12:29-31 – Seek First the Kingdom of God – Online Bible Study – Commentary in easy English – Day 280

And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them. But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well. (Luke 12:29-31)

When the coronavirus pandemic began, there was a shortage of meat and frozen foods. Instead of being thankful for the food we did have, many complained we couldn’t eat our favorite dishes. Now that most foods are plentiful and most aren’t seeking recreation outside the home, our hearts are set on eating. I was happy when a friend asked for books and personal items for her prison ministry so I could focus on something worthwhile.

When we seek His kingdom, God will fulfill all our needs, even those beyond food and water. So, don’t worry – help Jesus fulfill someone’s needs today.

Father God, I forgot to thank you for the food you provided during the pandemic, so I’m thanking you now. Show me how I can advance Your kingdom and ease the burden for my family and others. Help me not to worry by reminding me to cast my cares on You. In Jesus’ precious name I pray. Amen.

  1. A topic of conversation, even on the news, has been how many pounds have you gained during the pandemic? I guess there were many people eating more because they could not do other activities. I got busy baking, bread, brownies, and perfecting my pecan pie recipe! So, yes, I gained some weight too. We didn’t really see the meat shortage here. There were a few weeks that there were signs up that you could only buy 2 packages of any type of meat. When Drew was downsized from Kodak, that was a time of intense prayer to help with our needs. When I look back on it, I am not quite sure how I provided what we needed on one salary. But every month I was able to pay the bills and a house payment. I know, without a doubt, that God intervened and helped us through a difficult time. I was faithful in my prayer and thankful to Him every day in prayer for His blessings.

    1. Thanks for sharing. I abandoned God when I needed him the most. I tell that story in my next blog. Even though I wasn’t praying, he still sought me and enabled me to find Him. I am thankful for that.
