If there was ever an “easy button”, it is this: SEEK GOD. It is the key to everything.
MATTHEW 6:33-34 [TPT] So above all, constantly chase after the realm of God’s kingdom and the righteousness that proceeds from him. Then all these less important things will be given to you abundantly. Refuse to worry about tomorrow, but deal with each challenge that comes your way, one day at a time. Tomorrow will take care of itself.
MATTHEW 6:33-34 [KJV] But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
In 2015 I made Matthew 6:33 my life verse. I guess you could say that was when I reversed the direction of my life train. I had been slowing it down and stopping it from moving forward in the direction it was going. And our lives are just like a train - slow to start and stop but when it's full steam, has lots of power behind it. It took years to slow it down and bring it to a stop and then Matthew 6:33 was the key that switched directions. I still hold onto Matthew 6:33 as my life verse and can tell you I'm convinced even more now than ever, that Seeking God is truly the key to EVERYTHING.
JAMES 4:7-8 [ NASB] Submit therefore to God. But resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come close to God and He will come close to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
PSALM 119:11 [MEV] Your Word I have hidden in my heart that I might not sin against You.
