Today's Scripture: Matthew 6:25-34

Worry steals our joy and smiles. That’s why in today’s scripture, Jesus admonishes us not to worry. The Passion Translation puts it this way,

25 “This is why I tell you to never be worried about your life, for all that you need will be provided, such as food, water, clothing—everything your body needs. Isn’t there more to your life than a meal? Isn’t your body more than clothing?

26 “Look at all the birds—do you think they worry about their existence? They don’t plant or reap or store up food, yet your heavenly Father provides them each with food. Aren’t you much more valuable to your Father than they? 

27 So, which one of you by worrying could add anything to your life?

28 “And why would you worry about your clothing? Look at all the beautiful flowers of the field. They don’t work or toil, 

29 and yet not even Solomon in all his splendor was robed in beauty more than one of these! 

30 So if God has clothed the meadow with hay, which is here for such a short time and then dried up and burned, won’t he provide for you the clothes you need—even though you live with such little faith?

31 “So then, forsake your worries! Why would you say, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’ 

32 For that is what the unbelievers chase after. Doesn’t your heavenly Father already know the things your bodies require?

33 “So above all, constantly chase after the realm of God’s kingdom and the righteousness that proceeds from him. Then all these less important things will be given to you abundantly.

34 Refuse to worry about tomorrow, but deal with each challenge that comes your way, one day at a time. Tomorrow will take care of itself.”

Matthew 6:25-34 TPT

Over and again, I have heard the saying that if it is God’s WILL, then it’s God’s BILL. God does not watch us walk through the desert without providing an oasis for us. What has God told you to do and which instructions has he given to you? If you have no clue where and how to begin, ask Him for wisdom and direction. Sometimes, it is not about money, it’s about divine connections and destiny helpers. But whatever it may be, if God has asked you to take the initiative on a particular issue, trust Him to back it up with His divine provision.

Prayer Point: Father, I trust that if you have asked me to do this and that, then you have made provisions of grace, wisdom, favor, right people, finances and more than I can ask or think of in Jesus name. Amen.
