Faith removes worry!
God can teach us many of life's very important lessons from the world of nature.
Young children don't often have to worry about what they will eat for their next meal or how they will get their next outfit of clothes. They usually depend upon their parents or guardians to provide these things for them. But the parents can sometimes be worried because they don't know how they will be able to provide the necessary things for their family.
Jesus had a wonderful message for His followers. This was not a message for everyone; it was only for those who trusted and depended on Him for Salvation and Eternal Life.
Jesus said to His disciples: "Do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. Life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds!"
God has always shown that the human race was much more valuable that any other living creatures. Throughout the Old Testament times God instructed sinful undeserving people to bring countless animal sacrifices to die as their substitutes. This was to make the sinner acceptable to God.
Yet no amount of animal sacrifices would fully pay for anyone's sins!
God goes much further to prove to us how valuable we really are in His sight. "God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us."
"He who did not spare His own Son, but gave Him up for us all - how will He not also, along with Him, graciously give us all things?"
The great Creator God who puts food in the way of the birds can surely be trusted to provide for all who put their trust in Him.
"Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest? Consider how the lilies grow. They do not labour or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendour was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you, O you of little faith!"
So, for the true Christian faith removes worry.
Jesus went on to say, "Do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. ..Your Father knows that you need them. But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well. Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom."
Seek His kingdom! Will YOU trust the great Creator God to be YOUR Saviour and be King over your life and living? If you will then you will know that He really has provided for you;
and you will be able to trust Him to provide all that is needful for you from day to day.
Read Jesus' lesson from nature in Luke chapter 12, verses 22-34.
