Do Not Worry
25 “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 than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 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? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?
28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 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—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
DO NOT WORRY ~
Seek first the kingdom and his righteousness.
There is something about putting your trust in God that brings peace to your soul. We go through times of worry and doubt. If I just stop and think about all the things God has already done, then why wouldn't he continue to supply my needs? It's not only needs, but even wants in life. God has been faithful throughout my life and I must recall blessings. How about you? Can you stop for a moment and recall some great things God has already done for you? Ask yourself if worrying about something even helped you? I can honestly say worry hasn't helped me at all, but I have worried over things in life.
Luke 17:5 New International VersionThe apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!”
I read in the Bible how the apostles ask God to increase their faith. I remember praying in younger years to increase my faith. I had heard my son has a disease and how a few days to live. His body was swelling up and there was no medication to help him. My husband and I began to pray over him. Then I called people to pray and I put my faith in action. We did not have internet, Facebook or others ways of communication. We have a telephone and that became my tool of connection to others. I went through my phone book and began calling. Three days later, our son got a miracle of life. After seeing this, it stirred our faith and became a testimony of good to others. Prayers does work and we have seen it over and over again.
There might be something today that you are asking God for in life. Keep believing and keep holding on because God is a promise keeper. He wants us happy and the he wants to give us the desires of our heart as well. Sometimes the miracle is in the process of time.
PSALM 37:4 New International Version
Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
