DO NOT WORRY | KnowingJESUS Daily Devotional

Matthew 6:25-30. Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? 
Beloved, do not be part of the people that brings pains to the heart of God,because of their unbelief. This is because from the outset of creation , God had been mindful of the entirety of His creations. He made adequate provision for all His creations  to be adequately provided for. No created being, animals or  human, that God did not make provision for their wellbeing.

Genesis 1:29 -31. And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so. And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day..

Psalms 115:12-13 The Lord hath been mindful of us: he will bless us; he will bless the house of Israel; he will bless the house of Aaron. He will bless them that fear the Lord, both small and great.

In the place of unbelief, God expects all humanity and you in particular to have faith in Him and never doubt His ceaseless providence.

Psalms 55:22: Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.

Isaiah 26:3. Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

Romans 4:17-21. (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were. Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be. And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sara’s womb: He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.

Hebrews 11:6. But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Beloved, if you will be persuaded like Abraham that God will do exactly what His words says, then He will reward you for not having anxiety but faith in Him.  See how God adequately cared for His divers creations and be sure that yours shall not be an exclusion. It shall not be in Jesus name.

Job 38:41: Who provideth for the raven his food? when his young ones cry unto God, they wander for lack of meat.

Psalms 104:11-12.  They give drink to every beast of the field: the wild asses quench their thirst. By them shall the fowls of the heaven have their habitation, which sing among the branches.

Psalms 104:27-28.  These wait all upon thee; that thou mayest give them their meat in due season.That thou givest them they gather: thou openest thine hand, they are filled with good.

Psalms 145:15 -16!!The eyes of all wait upon thee; and thou givest them their meat in due season. Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.

Psalms 147:9: He giveth to the beast his food, andto the young ravens which cry.

Beloved, remember this, never ever forget. Everything He does is forever. So cast your cares upon Him. He will never forsake you.

Ecclesiastes 3:14: I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him.

It was this  knowledge of the unchanging benevolence and providence of God the Father, that made Jesus during His earthly ministry to caution His followers against avoidable anxieties. You in particular must cast your cares upon God, for He cares for you.

Matthew 6:25-30. Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?

Dearly beloved, during the earthly ministry of our Lord, He took adequate care of His disciples  and also taught them, never to have anxiety over anything. This was because God the Father is able to meet all their needs, beyond what Himself had done for them. Our Lord from time to time, usually asked them questions whether they lacked anything when He was with them.

Luke 22:35: And he said unto them, When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing? And they said, Nothing.

As He encouraged them, so He is doing to believers of all ages after them, especially you to avoid anxiety over anything and everything. See what He taught them.

Matthew 6:25-30. Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?

Luke 12:22 -23. And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on. The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment.

Matthew 6:31: Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

Matthew 6:34 : Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Matthew 10:29 -31. Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.

Luke 12:6-7. Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God?  But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.

Luke 12:24 -29 Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls? And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit? If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest?  Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith? And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind.

Luke 12:30-31 For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things. But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Apart from the innumerable exhortations  of our Lord, the blessed Holy spirit buttressed His words, encouraging believers of the adequacy of God, to meet their needs as they trust fully depended on God.

Romans 8:32: He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things

Philippians 4:6. Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

Hebrews 13:5 -6.  Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

1 Peter 5:7: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

Dearly beloved remember if thou can believe, all things are possible for them that believe and they also shall see the glory of the Lord. This shall be your portion in Jesus name.

Mark 9:23. Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.

John 11:40. Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?

JESUS WARNS BELIEVERS OF ALL AGES AND YOU IN PARTICULAR ON THE DANGERS OF AVOIDABLE ANXIETIES.
Friend, if there is any other time to take the exhortation of our Lord seriously about avoidable anxieties, it is now that, the rapture is dawning. This is because one weapon through which the devil and his cohorts are using to sway believers away from adequately preparing for this looming event is anxiety. So see what our Lord and the blessed Holy Spirit says.  Do not be moved by any circumstances  to compromise your faith or look back like Lot’s wife.

Psalms 56:3 What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.

Psalms 62:8 Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.

Luke 17:32 Remember Lot’s wife

Luke 12:4-5. And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.

Romans 8:32: He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things.

Philippians 4:6. Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

1 Peter 5:7: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

Matthew 6:25-30. Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?

Matthew 6:32: (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

Matthew 7:9: Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?

Matthew 28:20. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Friend, no matter what is happening around you at this present moment, be rest assured that Jesus will always be with you and make away for you to come out of the challenge, like He did for this  Arab brother and brethren confronted with life threatening tornado.

1 Corinthians 10:13. There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
