And He said to His disciples, “For this reason I say to you, do not worry about your life, as to what you will eat; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. “For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing. Luke 12:22-23
We spend a lot of our life worrying, we worry about how we are going to pay our bills, we worry about our children, we worry about whats for dinner, but Jesus told “Do Not Worry”! This sounds easier said then done, right? But that’s the point Jesus is trying to make!
When you have true faith in God, you step out of your comfort zone and put it in his hands. We don’t like this, we like to have control. We like to know all the details, how its going to end. But to truly surrender to God, we need to just be all in
“Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap; they have no storeroom nor barn, and yet God feeds them; how much more valuable you are than the birds! Luke 12:24
Again Jesus uses birds as an analogy for us. Previously he told us if sparrows are valuable to God, imagine how much more valuable you are! Now he tells us to learn from the ravens. Ravens don’t go around stressed out how there going to eat and take care of their families. No God just simply provides for the Ravens.
God is saying , he will provide for us also! Hes got this, you can stop wasting your life worrying about things you cant control
“And which of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life’s span? Luke 12:25
Jesus asks us all this great question, and will all know the answer! Then why do we continue to toil and worry over every little detail in our lives? How much is this distracting you from actually doing Gods will for your life? Put your trust in God, he will provide! Amen!
