Matthew 6:25-33 “Therefore I say to you, do not worry 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? Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” (NKJV)
Worry is the worst way to deal with the weather of times. We, as children of God must learn to turn to our heavenly Father in our times of stress, and we should not fret ourselves over our problems or lack. For our heavenly Father lacks nothing and He is always there for us. Our abundance is in the abundance of our heavenly Father.
By worrying we can’t change a thing. By constantly worrying we miss out on the abundant life that Jesus has to offer. By constantly worrying we will not experience the peace that Jesus offers. If He can take care of the birds and the vegetation He will take care of us who are His children and who are created in His own image. He is a loving father and will take care of all of our needs, and the scriptures use the term much more, His much more is something that we can’t measure, it is immeasurably more than what we can think or imagine.
He is the God who provided manna and quail from the skies for the Israelites, He can provide for us too through unexpected means. God wants us to live each day in His sufficiency, we may not be able to see the sufficiency of tomorrow but we can be sure that we live each day like princes and princesses because our Father is the only true and mighty King and it is He who holds our future.
All that we need to do is to continue to live in His Kingdom and His righteousness and never try to venture out of it for in His Kingdom there is fullness and abundance of everything we will ever need.
