The Word of God says “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” When He promised Israel He would take them to Canaan, he didn’t ditch them halfway. He provided manna from Heaven, and gave them water on the desert. The same God has this for us today; “I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear.” “Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.” Put your trust in Him.
Do not worry, saying “what shall I eat?” Or “what shall I drink?” Or “what shall I wear?” These are the three most important things we need on earth: The food we eat. The water we drink. And the clothes we put on. Do not worry about them. The good news is before the Sun rise in the morning, the Lord, your Father, had made provisions for them already. If He did not withhold His manna from their (Israel) mouths, and He gave them water for their thirst, He will not forget about you. For forty years, He sustained them in the desert; they lacked nothing, their clothes did not wear out nor did their feet become swollen. Do you know their population? They were about two million (2,000,000). Beloved, He has plans for us. Be encouraged that before the Sun rise in the east, or sets in the west, the Almighty God had already made provisions for you. That is before you wake up in the morning, all you would need for the day is ready, or before you get to bed, you would have had all you needed for the day. If God can’t provide for you in any day, do you think He would give you life to live in that day? When you are able to lift yourself up in the morning, it is a sign that He can sustain you throughout the day.
He fed five thousand people with five loaves of bread and two fish, and the left over were twelve baskets full. Do not worry because God thinks about you. You are His masterpiece. Now look at the lilies of the field. The Lord clothes them. Jesus added “even Solomon in all his splendour was not dressed like one of these.” Matthew 6:29. Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feed them. I may not know what you are going through today but I came to encourage you that your Father in heaven cares for you. He has got plans for you. He thinks about you daily, and He wants you to quit worrying. He wants you call upon Him.
Do you know why He wants you to do that?
Calling upon Him means: that you are seeing Him as a Supreme Being. That He is bigger that your circumstances. That He can do exceedingly, abundantly above what you expect from Him. That He is your Source. The children of God, on the wilderness, saw Him as their Provider. He is Jehovah Jireh, your Provider. Do not worry.
Everything shows you are discouraged, and wants to give up in that situation. Remember when He promised Abraham and Sarah, it took 25 years before it came to pass. Yet Abraham did not stagger in his Faith. Friends, Faith works with Patience. Do not bow your head again in tears because He knows how and what He is going to use to deliver you from that condition
The Lord allowed me to go through so many situations that I almost start to think help could come from nowhere. I wept and soaked my pillows nearly every night with tears. People did not know what I was going through. During those times, God wanted me to see Him as my source. It took time so you can imagine how I suffered. I read Matthew 6:25-34, and Luke 12:22-34 so many times. Each time in tears but I got to know that God wasn’t going to provide for me because of the tears on my face. He was expecting to exercise my Faith, to put into practice the Word I have read in Matthew 6:25-34. Today, I can testify that I live a worry-free life. When I get up in the morning, I give thanks for His abundant provisions for the day; for myself, my family, etc. He (God) asks me this question every morning “I am the Lord, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?”
There is no sense in worrying about what you can’t do, rather trust it in Someone Who has Power to do it in less than a second. Be wise and live worry-free life.
God bless you.
