The Lord Will Provide

Daily God Walk for Monday, April 19, 2010

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. – Matthew 6:31-32

If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers – most of which are never even seen – don’t you think he’ll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you? What I’m trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God’s giving. People who don’t know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met. – The Message

It is easy to get so caught up in life that we lose sight of our life-source. Believers we are stressed over how the government is being run and how the economy is going. Pastors are stressed over the congregation and their response to the ministry. And Jesus is just telling us to take a step back; get another perspective and realize that this is God’s business, we’re just standing in for him.

Conservatives are saying we are losing our freedoms; liberals are saying we are destroying our planet; Believers are saying that things are so bad that we must be in the end times; and what does Jesus say? Jesus is saying, “Hey, take a chill pill. Relax! My father knows what is going on and he knows exactly what he is doing. Trust him and he won’t let you down.”

We need to just settle down and ask ourselves if we believe God is in control or not. If he is, then can we trust him to protect us and to provide for us? Logically we know that the answer to both of those questions is yes. Then, knowing that is true we must practice believing it.

If we are going to be running around guided by worry like the pagans, or Gentiles, or simply the citizens of this world system, then we are going to miss the best that God has for us. Trust Him – He is trustworthy.

Principle:  Trust God and he will prove that he is trustworthy.

Affirmation:  In these times all we can trust is God and his kingdom.

Prayer:  Lord, I do tend to become stressed over the circumstances of my life. Grant me the grace to wholly trust you. In Jesus name, amen.
