Can I or Will I trust God with what he is doing in my DAILY life?
This past Sunday at church I was definitely challenged by the words that were spoken to my church. This past challenge was taken from Matthew 6:19-34 where Jesus spoke to us.
Matthew 6:19-34 (New Living Translation)
19 “Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. 21 Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.
22 “Your eye is a lamp that provides light for your body. When your eye is good, your whole body is filled with light. 23 But when your eye is bad, your whole body is filled with darkness. And if the light you think you have is actually darkness, how deep that darkness is!
24 “No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.
25 “That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? 27 Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?
28 “And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, 29 yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. 30 And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?
31 “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ 32 These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. 33 Seek the
34 “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.
The true question of this passage is: WHO or WHAT will you (or myself for that matter) choose as the source for my life?
Will I follow the first part of this passage (vs. 19-24) and place my trust in STUFF?
Will I follow the second part of this passage (vs. 25-30) and place my trust in MYSELF?
Will I follow the last part of this passage (vs. 31-34) and place my trust in GOD?
This video from Amena Brown, really set everything in place for me. No matter what I end up doing God finds me. He loves me through everything!
I am going to place my trust in the One True God…my Jehovah Jireh!
