Praise the Lord Everyone... I just wanted to stop by and remind you that "OUR GODS GOT YOU!" Too many times we are worried about things the Lord has already told us not to worry about. What we shall eat, what we shall wear, and what tomorrow holds... God wants us to look to him for our portion daily... He wants us to come to him for our provision and He shall supply ALL our needs according to His riches in Glory. All that we have belongs to Him…. Our finances are his, our homes are his, our children and family are his, etc. We and all we have are loans from God. That’s it. We are admonished to live for today, because tomorrow isn’t promised. So to become fearful of things that might not ever affect us is operating in fear opposed to faith. There was a king who wanted to store up for a rainy day, and his obsession with that caused him to neglect his NOW opportunity. God doesn’t bless us to hoard things for ourselves. He has blessed us with things to be a blessing to other people. This was such an offense before the Lord, that he was saving up for a rainy day that he wouldn’t need, or see.
I had the pleasure to speak to someone suffering with depression. A born again believer, who was considering medication to help with this condition. Now don’t get me wrong, I was thankful that this dear one knew they had a problem however I wasn’t for their turning to medication. Some of our problems don’t need to be chemically resolved, at least in this situation. As they were speaking, the Lord revealed to me that this believer lacked faith and trust in God. (We’ve all been there, however we can’t stay here) They went on to explain that in time of their self-assessment, they haven’t accomplished very much. They didn’t have this, or didn’t have that, etc. and though this person is rich in word, their confession was evident proof of their lack of faith and trust in God. They worried about not having monies to retire etc. Therefore living beneath their privilege, and becoming prey for the enemy. They know have re-adjusted their mindsets and are on their way to recovering all the enemy tried to steal from them.
The world wants us to become so consumed with its cares and woes. The world wants us to receive that we are all in a recession, when we have access to Gods Kingdom Economy. So people can become fearful about that nest egg that they are saving and storing up for rainy days. The world and satan want us to take our eyes off the Lord. Believers, we have to come to a place where we BELIEVE GOD totally and unequivocally, without fail. When we do otherwise, we are telling God that we don’t believe He is who he says he is, and He is unable to do what we’ve heard or read He can do. God’s Able! To do exceedingly and abundantly above all we ask or think. You don’t have to be medicated if you believe God! You don’t have to be fearful and consumed about tomorrow, when God is our Portion TODAY! If he is able to take care of us today, Isnt he more than able to take care of us tomorrow? The Kingdom of God is at hand, and God has given us the Kingdom… The Lord our God is a Shield for us, our Glory and the Lifter of our heads.
Luke 12:22-30 22 And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on.
23 The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment.
24 Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls?
25 And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit?
26 If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest?
27 Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
28 If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and tomorrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith?
29 And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind.
30 For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.
31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.
32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
