Matthew 6:25-34 (NIV)
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?
Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?
“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin.
Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.
If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’
For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Why do we believe that Jesus came down from Heaven, lived a common and sinless life, died on a cross for our sins, and then rose from the dead on the third day? And then have a hard time believing that God will provide for us?
It’s a puzzler. It should not be this way. God loves us VERY much. We are the apple of His Eye. When He looks down at you and me, His heart is overflowing with love and compassion for us.
The only way we will ever fully trust Him and really know that He WILL provide all of our needs according to His riches and glory, is when we really put Him first in our lives. It’s time to grow up, and stop “playing” Christian. It’s time to get in the Word and stop making excuses. It’s time to get to know the One Who bore our pain. It’s time to seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness. It’s time to stop worrying and start trusting Daddy….It’s time!
Daddy God, Thank You for providing all of my needs. Thank You that I only need to trust You and walk with You. Thank You that You will NEVER leave me or forsake me. Thank You that You stick closer than a brother. Thank You for loving me and calling me from my Mother’s womb. Thank You for all of the blessings and mercy You show me every day of my life. I love You, Daddy. In Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.
In His Love and Service,
