Therefore I tell you, don’t be anxious for your life: what you will eat, or what you will drink; nor yet for your body, what you will wear. Isn’t life more than food, and the body more than clothing? See the birds of the sky, that they don’t sow, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns. Your heavenly Father feeds them. Aren’t you of much more value than they?
I looked at myself in the mirror. Things I wanted weren’t showing up. Things I needed didn’t seem to be happening. God seemed lost and His help seemed distant.
I prayed, “Help me, God!”
As I always did, when I don’t know what to do: I opened God’s Word.
I read Matthew 6:25-26 (today’s verses). These verses changed my heart; I believe they’ll change yours too.
They helped me to stop worrying about whether or not I’ll have enough food, money, and everything else to last me to the end of the month.
They helped me stop worrying about my kids (well, most of the time, anyway). They reminded me I only need to trust in God to take care of me.
Yes, God has blessed me abundantly. He has blessed you, too.
Do you feel low and think God does not care? This may be the moment that God is very close to you. Read today’s verses with full faith in Him.
Allow the following Bible promises to strengthen your faith:
God will supply every need of yours according to His riches (Philippians 4:19).
The Lord does not let the righteous go hungry (Proverbs 10:3).
Believe that God can, He does, and He will take great care of you always. Have a good day!
Dear Heavenly Father,
Help me stop worrying.
Instead, lead me to trust You fully.
In Jesus’ precious Name, I pray, Amen.
