I know that there is not a single one of us that hasn’t been affected by the downturn in the economy. We all are now worrying about the price of gas, the price of groceries, how much we are having to take out of our savings accounts just to make do. I know that I have. There isn’t any time that it isn’t either in the forefront of my thinking, or simmering on the back burner.
I was reading some scripture to the girl last night before bed, and I was reminded that God is in control. I don’t have to worry. I shouldn’t worry, but I do.
So I say to you, don’t be worried for your life, what you will eat, or what you will drink; or yet for your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?
Look at the birds of heaven, they don’t plant, neither do they reap, or gather into barns; and your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of much more value then they?
And which of you by worrying can add one moment to his life? And why are you worried about clothes?
Look at the lilies of the field, how they grow; they don’t work, neither do they spin: yet I say unto you, that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God does so clothe the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow cast into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
I have been faithless in this area for far to long.
