“If you decide for God, living a life of God-worship, it follows that you don’t fuss about what’s on the table at mealtimes or whether the clothes in your closet are in fashion…Look at the birds, free and unfettered, not tied down to a job description, careless in the care of God. And you count far more to him than birds.”Matthew 6:25-26, Message Bible.
There will always be a whisper in your heart from God as His son to do one thing–don’t worry. God’s heart is that we learn to live without a care in the world.
The birds who are free and have no job description, are careless in the care of God. They don’t have money, but they eat each day. They don’t have a home, but they always receive shelter. They fly in their freedom and every day the Lord never ceases to fail them. If God provides for them, would He not provide for you? If He works each day out for them, will He not do it for you? You are worth far more than all the birds combined.
Be encouraged to let it all go. There is so much you could worry about or hold on to, but my brother it will surely keep you from truly living. Your Heavenly Father knows what you need before you even ask. Enjoy your precious moments. Fly in your freedom. Go after His will and purpose for your life, and He will handle the rest.
Prayer: Father, I give You praise and I thank You for Your word. I am a man without a care in the world! I am careless in Your care, trusting You. Help me to enjoy abundantly my life and not worry about the situations of my life. May I enjoy my precious moments. May I laugh like I’ve already overcome. I will fly in my freedom that Jesus has given me. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
