“Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to Him than they are? Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?”

(Matthew 6:26-27 NLT).

READ: Matthew 6:25-34

 The life of a bird is so simple. It is not characterized with the complexities of worry. They do not plant, harvest, or store in barns but their provision is certain. Knowing that we are more valuable than the birds of the air, why do we still worry? If God takes the responsibility of providing for the birds, then why will He not take care of us? Worry is a poison that dampens the spirit. It steals our joy. It tends to exalt our problems more than what God can do for us. Worry breeds fear. Have you not discovered that those things you seem to worry about end up not happening the way you pictured it?

Your needs cannot be met by worrying about them. But that does not mean you should sit down at home and expect manna to fall from heaven. No! Look at the birds. Even though they know they do not plant, harvest or store food, they still leave their nest to look for food.  You cannot have your needs met by staying free only from worry. You also need to take steps to find solution to your needs. You don’t sit at home and expect your bills paid. You must leave your home, and look for a job to do. No matter how little, do something. God rewards work not man. You are worth more than the birds.  Trust God today as you step out. He will never forsake you. 

Prayer:

Father I thank You for already waiting for me as I step out today. I will come into divinely prepared meetings of destiny, in Jesus name amen.
