25 Jan GOD HAS YOUR NEEDS COVERED
25 “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?27 And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?
The average human being is seriously concerned about his life on earth. A lot of life’s activities currently are geared more towards our earthly existence than about eternity. Very often our needs on earth overwhelm us and make eternity look so remote we do not want to even think about the reality of life after death.
We live in the physical and do a lot of spiritual things even in the physical. The problem with being influenced by physical needs is that it often competes with issues of faith and dependence on God. We get so engrossed to the point we forget that God knows our needs more than we do.
Can you imagine that it is only after God had created all that man would need for His existence that He created Man? Since the beginning, God has demonstrated His concern for the welfare of man. It is unlikely that the resources of the earth will be depleted. We have not discovered even half of what God deposited in the earth before He created man.
If we remember that God is the Source of all that we pursue in this life, we will definitely make Him a part of everything we do, including the pursuit of what we need to live our lives on earth.
1. Express thanks to your heavenly Father who has all you need and knows what you need.
2. Pray for faith to simply trust God to meet your needs instead of being occupied with chasing after things.
3. Father, please help me tap into Your resources that never run dry so I will not worry over material needs.
I declare with the Psalmist that “The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want”. I will no longer go through this life worrying about what to eat and what to wear; because my Father has provided them all. I walk in faith with God and He will certainly lead me and provide my needs in the name of Jesus.
