Humble, Not Anxious: Life in the Kingdom of God

Humble, Not Anxious: Life in the Kingdom of God

When we feel out of control, we worry. We worry that we will not get what we need or want or desire or deserve. We worry that we don’t have enough, that we can’t do enough, that we won’t be enough. And our worry about all that gets in the way of how God intends us to live, how God means for us to be human.

God’s invitation is there for us. We don’t need to be anxious. Not because we’re in control, but because we recognize that we aren’t. It’s humbling to need God. It is humbling. But it’s so freeing…  to seek first, the kingdom of God.

Prayer isn’t intuitively obvious, especially in our secular world. It’s something we learn how to do – by watching others, by being taught. It’s something that has to be learned, and practiced. Even the disciples needed to learn how to pray, and Jesus taught them. Be bold to name the needs you have, he said. Go ask the One who can help you. And then trust that your prayers will be answered.
