22 And he said to his disciples, Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat, nor about your body, what you will put on. 23 For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing. 24 Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds! 25 And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? 26 If then you are not able to do as small a thing as that, why are you anxious about the rest? 27 Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 28 But if God so clothes the grass, which is alive in the field today, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will he clothe you, O you of little faith! 29 And do not seek what you are to eat and what you are to drink, nor be worried. 30 For all the nations of the world seek after these things, and your Father knows that you need them. 31 Instead, seek his kingdom, and these things will be added to you.
This verse speaks to me in so many ways it brings peace and understanding when I open the refrigerator and it is bare, when my clothes are ripped and the checking account is empty. This verse tells me that it will be ok. That God is the great provider and I need no worry about anything. For HE and He alone will provide. I do not find security in my checkbook, my refrigerator (whether full or barren) my car, my cabinets or my wallet. It only comes from knowing that all I must do is be still and know that HE is God.
What are you taking comfort in that is fleeting away? Let me pray for you.
