“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air. They do not sow or reap or gather into barns—and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?
And why do you worry about clothes? Consider how the lilies of the field grow: they do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his glory was adorned like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
Therefore, do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles strive after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added unto you.
Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Today has enough trouble of its own.”
Matthew 6: 25- 34.
Worry has a way of stealing our day and our tomorrow with distractions, fear, and doubt of God’s goodness. When you come in relationship with worry, He will lead you at every corner to turn all your blessings into heavy bags of burdens.
You worry about your day, rather than rejoicing in what God has made. You worry about finances, rather than trusting God to supply all your needs. You worry about your children, rather than trusting God to show mercy because he visits the parents, and the children of those who love Him and keep his commandments, down to the thousandth generation. You worry about your marriage, and that you’re not good enough, rather than cultivating virtue, and fearing the Lord which is much more worthy to be praised. You worry about tomorrow, rather than seeing the joy and miracles of the moment that are bursting forth all around you.
Cast your cares on your Father, my beloved one. Come and lay your weary head upon his shoulder and give him your heart and find rest in Him because He is in control and holds you in the palm of his hands. Do not let “the worries of this life, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful.” Mark 4:19
Break up with worry today. Give him eviction papers and tell him he has to go! That you have found a new home in your Father’s heart where he will never be welcome. And be free from his chokehold upon your life as you now find your confidence in the words of your Father, that you “are a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season, and whose leaf does not wither – and whatever you do will prosper.” Psalm 1:3
God the Father begins,
“My beloved one, I am your help in trouble, your redeemer, and your deliverer. Yet, you don’t run to me as much as you should, and sometimes you don’t run to me at all. I stand beside you and My Angles are hedged all around you. Do not fear for I am with you and you are greatly loved by Me. Seek Me, my beloved one, until you find Me. Seek Me above all else and you will find the greatest treasure you have been looking for your whole life.
I long to be a part of every detail of your life, if you would have Me. I feel so lonely without your companionship as if I’m just a means to run to when you are in need of something. My beloved one, I am your Father, do you realize what that means? It’s that I have your best interest in mind. I know everything about everything in your life, and that of your family. Let’s do this life together.
Thank me for this marriage I have ordained for you and thank Me for answering the cry of your heart to be a mother. But you’re more than that, my beloved one. You will be a mother of souls to so many others. This union is only the beginning for you, and you must come to feed on Me alone. Come and remain in My love by being obedient to My will that you may bear much fruit. You have been steadfast in the midst of much opposition that came against you in this union, but you now know they are my perfect will for you, and together in Me, you both will do great things.
I long to show you how present I am to you. I long to grow your confidence in Me in the midst of all your frailties and weakness. I am not looking for perfection, I never was, and I never will. All I am looking for is a willingness beloved, and your heart. I want your heart, My love. I need your love. Yes, your God needs you. There is no striving in My love, I have given you free access through my Son to come and sit on your Father’s lap, lay your head on my heart, speak to me about your burdens, and find your peace and assurance there like the child you are. Come…
Your Daddy is speaking.”
