Have you ever had worries or concerns of how you’re going to pay your bills, provide comfortably for your family and or simple daily needs? We know that all things come from God who sustains us daily, but there are times when the mind runs a muck and the flesh panics. In these times we need to be reminded of this simple truth. In Discourse 29 it is written, “When by devotion one pulls God unto his life, then automatically eternal prosperity of immortality, wisdom and ever new blessings are added to him.” In the Bhagavad Gita the Lord similarly proclaims; “To men who meditate on me as their very own, ever united to me by incessant worship, I will supply their deficiencies and make permanent their gains. In Matthew 6:24-34 Jesus nor the Bhagavad Gita are saying ignore your daily sustenance- All things in perspective. If all our attention is on materialism, self needs and desires, there is no room for God. When we place our souls and minds first on God, all things work out and together for our good. This does not say we won’t have challenges, however we will face them a lot better and with greater faith and hope.
