MORNINGTIME 2571
 
But SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD, AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS; and all these things shall be added unto you. 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 6:33-34. The Bible is telling us not to worry about the things we need TOMORROW, and even not to worry about the things we need today. Simply, DON'T WORRY. PERIOD. Would I be stretching too far to say we are also not to worry about what kind of and how many blessings we will receive tomorrow, or next week, and so on? Will I or won't I get a Christmas bonus? Will this Friday's paycheck be enough to put gas in my car? How will I survive if, this or that? Here's where the rubber meets the road. If we Christians truly believe that Christ WILL meet every one of our NEEDS, and this includes every single breath we take, than by what right can we claim the need to worry about ANYTHING tomorrow? Aren't we to Praise the Lord for everything that comes to us from His Hand? Meaning, He gives us food and water, and He also gives us just the right amount of trials, troubles, testing’s, and tribulations today to mold us more and more into the Likeness of Christ, today? Isn't all this part of the whole package we signed up for in this thing called Christianity??? Yes, the Bible says to make our plans for the future AND to add, If The Lord Wills, which means, make your plans and allow the Lord to work out ALL the details. Then however it works out, we're never surprised, just amazed at His Handiwork when He's done. Do you KNOW if you'll even be alive tomorrow? If you don't know the answer to that one, why worry about something to eat. We Live, we die, it's ALL in the Lord's Hands. He won't miss a thing, and we won't either, if we'll just leave it all IN His Hands and say Thank You when He does give us a thing we need. What A Joy to Trust in Jesus. What A Way to, Be Blessed.
