Good morning, Beloved Family:
God is forever faithful. He knows what happens to every sentient being on this earth. God watches the lilies of the field, the animals that come and go on the ground, the creatures that call the river, lakes and seas their home, and even the little sparrows that fly through the sky. There is not an instant that God does not know about. Every minute is accounted for.
I know right now, a great deal of the world has questions about what the future will hold. I encourage you to trust God. God loves us more than we can imagine. I also encourage each of us to make divine choices.
Make choices that change the balance of the atmosphere. Make spiritual choices that makes us winners in the unseen battles in unknown realms. Make choices that move the pendulum to love instead of hate. Every decision we make adds weight to the scales. What are you adding?
Some folks may say that God has a funny way of showing how much he loves us. We have to always remember that free will and choice were given to us a long time ago. We must be willing to take responsibility for our choices, both good and bad. Search your heart, your motive, and your hand. Ask God to purify your worship and to cleanse your heart of anything that may move the scales the wrong way.
English Standard Version (ESV)
Do Not Be Anxious
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?[a] 28 And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, 29 yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31 Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
34 “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
