God Takes Care Of Our Needs

Do not worry then, saying, 'What will we eat?' or 'What will we drink?' or 'What will we wear for clothing?' For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. "So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. - Matthew    6:31 - 34 (NASB)

Jesus was teaching the multitudes on the mount. He touched on the perfection of the law before coming to the place where He told the multitudes not to worry about their daily needs. He made the comparison of king Solomon to the lilies of the valley on how king Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like the lilies. That's because the glory of the lilies comes from within and not without.

Jesus expounded on how the Heavenly Father, who looks after the lilies of the field which come and go in a short time, will take care of the needs of the multitudes. The bible tells us which of us by worrying can increase our stature. That's to say, which of us my worrying will get the issue resolved!

The bible tells us about the manna principle. During the wondering and wandering years of the children of Israel, God caused manna to drop on the camp daily except on Sabbath day. God told the children of Israel to collect the manna for each day's portion and on the sixth day to collect double portion. The bible tells us that there were those who collected more than a day's portion and the balance portion bred worms and stank.

God wants us to live life care-free, trusting in His love towards us, living each day by faith and not by sight. Living each day knowing full well God will take care of all our daily needs. For God so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to die for the world so through that one sacrifice, believers can live an abundant life. We can cast all our cares upon the feet of Jesus for He cares.

Whatever the concern that's weighing you down, cast that concern at the feet of Jesus. Praise Him and thank Him for having taken care of the things that are bothering us. For Jesus has conquered death on our behalf, what more will He not do it for us! Mayb it be a medical condition which the doctor has given a negative report, may it be a finanical situation which you have no way of getting out, may it be a relationship issue which seems impossible to reconcile, whatever the issue may be, leave it at the feet of Jesus.

Live a care-free life knowing you have a loving Abba Father who loves and cares for us deeply. Trust Him to provide for all our needs. Believe in His perfect timing, for all things will turn out for our good. Hallelujah.
