Ever felt like you were riding in a hot air balloon that was about to pop?😩 The Devil wants us so exhausted that we snap crackle and POP! We must remember that even in the worse of circumstances God takes care of those who love Him.😊 Remember Daniel, Shadrach, Meschach, and Abednego? Remember how the Lord took care of them even while they were slaves in Babylon? (Daniel 2:48-49) We may not become rulers in this life like they did but we will rule with Jesus forever as a reward for keeping our faith.😊
In this life guys there will be troubles. Sometimes we won’t experience financial blessings like we think we should. But God promises to care for all our needs. (Matthew 6:33-34)😊 Think about it: if the Lord used money to make all of our problems go away we would worship money more than God. God Himself is our gain! He is our reward! If you are in Christ you have the person who is in charge of everything, including money! We have the source of every good gift and every perfect present: (James 1:17)
Matthew 6:25-34 NKJV “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But SEEK FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS , and ALL THESE THINGS SHALL BE ADDED TO YOU. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”
We are so prone to trying to figure out things without seeking God’s guidance it’s a shame.
WE NEED FAITH NOT A PLAN
Worrying is so easy to do but Jesus warns us not to. Worry does nothing but harm the worrier. So many ailments physically, mentally, and spiritually are linked to anxiety. What a loving command from our Father not to worry.😊 God knows what we need before we ask. We must learn to trust Him, and instead of worrying seek FIRST God’s kingdom and His righteousness knowing everything we need will be added to us. We need faith not a plan to solve our problems:
Proverbs 3:5-6 NKJV “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.”
God guarantees He will lead us and give direction to our lives if we acknowledge Him in all we do.😊 Sometimes those directions may not be what we want or expect. This is where faith comes in. We are so prone to trying to figure out things without seeking God’s guidance it’s a shame. God says we need faith not a plan.
I’m not saying that planning is evil. (Proverbs 15:22) What I am saying is too often we depend on our own plans (our own understanding) instead of God. (Proverbs 19:21) This needs to stop!✋ Our God works miracles. He makes a way when there appears to be none. Remember what He did for the Israelites at the Red Sea? Nothing is too hard for God! (Jeremiah 32:27) Not one of us has that kind of power but our God does.😊 And Jesus says:
John 15:7 KJV “If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.”
Shouldn’t this encourage us to accept God’s plans in faith over our own?😊
Hebrews 11:1 NKJV “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
Hebrews 11:6 HCSB “Now without faith it is impossible to please God, for the one who draws near to Him must believe that He exists and REWARDS THOSE WHO SEEK HIM.”
