Every morning is a gift from God. New air to breathe. New opportunities to discover. New journey to unfold. New challenges to face. New step to take. New life to live.
It’s a good thought to have, right? Feels like everything is new and we just hope that everything will just that easy. But yes, it is not.
The world is offering us to worry or be anxious about what will happen in our day, tomorrow, and the next day. We hope that everything will turn out to be just what we expect from God. We obey and expect a return from Him. And if we don’t see the things we hope to have from God, we started to grumble, to worry, and to complain, to whine and worst to rebel. But what God made me realize is that it doesn’t work that way and it will never be. Our plans were, is, and will never conform to His plans.
You see, we worry too much about what will happen because we don’t trust God.
I am just as guilty as you. I tend to box God in my planner and schedules.
Look at the birds, free and unfettered, not tied down to a job description, careless in the care of God. And you count far more to him than birds.” –Matthew 6:26 (MSG)
Did you ever see a bird that is anxious about their food to eat and house to sleep? The death of the birds is mostly from an accident or people attack but I never heard a bird reported dead due to lack of water or shortage of food. Why is that? Because God made them and He provided for them every day. Yes, we cannot compare a bird to a human but we had the same Creator who formed and fashioned by the One true God.
Has anyone by fussing in front of the mirror ever gotten taller by so much as an inch? All this time and money wasted on fashion—do you think it makes that much difference? Instead of looking at the fashions, walk out into the fields and look at the wildflowers. They never primp or shop, but have you ever seen color and design quite like it? The ten best-dressed men and women in the country look shabby alongside them.” –Matthew 6:27-29 (MSG)
We have seen a wildflower anywhere, we use it for occasions such as wedding, birthday, valentines, etc. but did we ever think how this flower grows? According to Oxford Dictionary Languages, Wildflowers is a flower of an uncultivated variety or a flower growing freely without human intervention.
Isn’t that mind-blowing?
These beautiful flowers are never missed out in the hands of God. Though we do not care for them, God does.
If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers—most of which are never even seen—don’t you think he’ll attend to you, take pride in you, and do his best for you? What I’m trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God’s giving. People who don’t know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met. –Matthew 6:30-33 (MSG)
It all explained here that God is more concerned for you and me more than the birds in the sky and wildflowers in the field. Isn’t that great?
Every human being is special in the sight of God.
Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes. –Matthew 6:34
God is telling us, “I got you”. He sees what’s in our mind and He knows our desire. Believe it or not, God’s attention is entirely to you and me not just on a Sunday but every day, every minute and every second of our breath.
We may not see the hands of God working in our everyday life, we can trust Him for Who He is. God is good regardless of what we see, feel, or hear.
Wherever you are or whatever you do right now take a moment to pause for a while, take a deep breath (Inhale& Exhale), and think about how God met your needs for the last years of your existence.
How have been God met your needs?
What does it tell you about Who God is?
What are you grateful for what happened?
