MATTHEW 6:25_Therefore I say unto you, take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink…
That’s a rather strange way for Jesus to begin a new teaching. If you don’t take thought for your life, who will? Maybe parents. If you don’t have earthly parents, surely by now you are convinced your Heavenly Father takes thought of you. You are never out of His mind or heart.
Psalm 139:1-3 (KJV),“O lord, Thou hast searched me, and known me. 2 Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off. 3 Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.”
You are always on God’s mind. He knows everything that happens in your life. There’s more to this Psalm, “17 How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! 18 If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.” God constantly takes thought of your life.
This is not about whether you eat your spinach, or drink your kefir. This is about worry. And being released from it.
Think that’s easier said than done?
Good Shepherd, Thank You for thinking of my needs every day. In the powerful name of Jesus, Amen.
Christ keeps me in His thoughts—He knows my needs!
