Matthew 6:25-27 “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? 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? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?
Look at the sparrows, and consider the lilies. God put so much time and detail into these aspects of creation, so just imagine how much more attention that he put into creating us. We are made in his image. You know that no detail is left out.
God has supplied rain and sun to nurture the plants of the field. He has provided a time of rest through drought. For us he has supplied more than we could ever ask for or even need.
Our Father is always there, in full supply, and right on time. When we are running on empty, he is enough and will fill us up before we even know that we need it. All things are done to bring him glory.
Matthew 6: 28- 34 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 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? So 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.
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Dear Father God, thank you for bringing us back to truth on this weary day. In our tired stance, you remind us that you will supply all of our needs right on time. You are the provider of all things and we will lean on that mercy. We thank you for your continued faithfulness. In Your Name, Amen
