“Therefore I tell you, stop being worried or anxious (perpetually uneasy, distracted) about your life…Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow [seed] nor reap [the harvest] nor gather [the crops] into barns, and yet your heavenly Father keeps feeding them. Are you not worth much more than they?” Matthew 6:25-26, Amplified.
God’s heart is that we learn to live without a care in the world. The Message Bible says 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 fails them. If God provides for them, would He not provide for you? If He works out each day 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, daughter of God. There is so much you could worry about, but 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 the kingdom and His righteousness, and He will handle the rest.
Prayer: Father, I give you praise, and I thank you for your word. I declare I live without a care in the world! I am careless in your care, trusting by faith in you. Help me to enjoy my life abundantly and not worry about the situations of my life. May I enjoy my precious moments. I will praise you like it’s already done. I will fly in my freedom that Jesus has given me. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
