The Word for today is found in Matthew 6:25-34

25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life]? 28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Worry is the opposite of faith, and anything that is not of faith is sin.

I grew up a worry person. Everyday I wondered when the next shoe would fall. It took some real work on my part to learn to truly trust God.

We become so programmed to our past that it is hard sometimes as a Christians to let go of that part of our life. We have to change our thinking and think in line with the Word of God.

It is such a freedom to know that I can go to sleep at night and the God who never sleeps will take care of my tomorrow. The stock market may fall, the food prices go up, but I will never do with out. God said he would meet all my needs according to Christ’s riches in Glory.

And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:19)

All my needs mean all.

Turn loose and let God be the Father he has always wanted to be to you.

He wants to be your everything. He wants to show you his love in ways you can not begin to imagine.

God says to those who will hear that you need to open up and begin to experience the love of God that is based on his wonderful grace.
