And the Lord said, “I have their answer.” And I thought, “Okay, this is going to be good.” And I went up and I looked at Matthew 6, and it says, “Therefore, I say unto you?-6:25 it says” not to worry about your life, what you will eat, or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you shall put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing.” Then He said, “Look at the birds of the air. Look at the trees. Look at this. Look how perfectly I clothed the lilies of the field.” Even Solomon, who was by standard about as rich as you can get in the whole universe, “Even Solomon in all of his splendor and arrayed in all of his splendor could not touch how perfectly I clothed and fed the lilies of the field.”

And I began to think about that, because single moms who are out, in a sense, being pulled away from their family, being pulled away from their children, and in some cases being literally pulled away from their sanity because they’re so tired, are doing it for one reason, food and clothing. They’ve got to put food on the table, and they’ve got to feed and clothe and take care of their children.

RR: Or grandchildren.

LR: Or grandchildren. Many cases in our society, grandchildren. And the Lord said, “Don’t worry about your life. Don’t worry about food and clothing.” Wait a minute. Here are these people who are ninety-eight percent of the body of Christ in some form of poverty

RR: No, debt, debt.

LR: Or debt. Well, to me debt is a form of poverty. And God is saying, “Don’t worry about it.” Well, how can you not worry about it? And He said, “Because I have already taken care of it. If you seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness,” which means if you seek first the kingdom of God, which is as a seed, the Bible says, the kingdom of God is as a seed. That’s what the Bible calls it.

And then He went on to say, “If you seek first the kingdom of God and His way of doing things.” That’s what the word “and His righteousness” translates. “If you seek first the kingdom of God, which is as a seed, and His way of doing things,” which is seedtime and harvest. He said, “As long as the earth remains?

RR: All through the Bible.

LR: “If you will seek first the kingdom of God and do it His way, seedtime and harvest, all of these things shall be added unto you,” food, clothing, whatever it is you have need of.

The only way I can see for these women, for single moms, for anybody who is operating in debt, to break the spirit of that bondage is by seedtime and harvest. And this shows that you wouldn’t even have to worry about food or clothing if you’ll seek first God’s way of doing things, which is seedtime and harvest.
