Matthew 6 in the Bible challenges us to have FAITH! It says that you have little faith if you worry about all the details of your life... Will my toilet paper run out? Is the pantry full enough? Will I get layed off at work as non-essential personnel? Is the water safe to drink? Will my kids get the education they need? Will there be enough money to buy new shoes? The Bible says that these things are what the world worries about, and fusses and complains about, but our Dad, our Heavenly Father, already knows we need these things and He has a plan. So what is His plan? You have be adopted by God or He is not your Dad... really! Have you talked to God lately like a Dad? The Bible says to give your entire attention to what God is doing, to put God first on your To Do List today. Don't worry about tomorrow, it will be a whole new set of challenges and today is quite enough already. God's plan is for you to seek God and His righteousness, His way of doing things, His plan for your life to accept the sacrifice of Jesus made for YOUR LIFE! It's absolutely amaaazing! It's stunning! It's sooo totally awesome! And when you say YES to being the Bride of Jesus Christ, He actually sends you His Ghost to live in you and with you in this world, and guess what His Ghost brings? His Holy Spirit brings love and joy and PEACE and LONGSUFFERING and gentleness and FAITH and meekness and temperance and self control... do you need any of these things? I have peace today amidst the craziness because the Spirit of Jesus is inside of me! I should not have peace with the craziness at work, and staffing changes looming, and looking in my own pantry and my own supplies, and watching needed family surgery get postponed, and cancelling hotel plans and and and... but I KNOW God has a plan... because He LOVES me and he knows better than I do what is down the road on my journey. God has a Kingdom of God plan that I get to be a part of, and He knows where He needs me most, but I don't. I can barely see 24 hours out, but God sees the whole big picture! So friends, trust God! Read Matthew 6 in different Bible translations and versions and try to understand the whole meaning for your life right now... the last 2 verses are so so so powerful for us today! PUT GOD FIRST, and then don't worry about the rest, He alone will guide you as to what to do and when to do it, and will provide for what you need to do what He has for you to do. Faith is not worrying, but talking to your Father God about everything! Did you know He craves spending time with you? He loves you! He sent Jesus to you! Talk to Jesus like you talk to your friends... Jesus was here on earth REALLY... If we had been alive just a few years earlier, we would have been able to sit on a park bench and talk to Him... wow! But guess what? He sent his GHOST, so we can still sit on a park bench and talk to Him, we just can't see Him, but He is there! How cool that is!!! Talk to Him before you talk to your friends or religious leaders or teachers or professors... just talk to HIM FIRST, because HE is the One Who knows what is next, and HE is the provider for YOU and for YOUR LIFE! If you are worried, read this again, and read Matthew 6, because despite the crazy insanity of our world today, we are told to NOT worry! Who said that? Read Matthew 5... JESUS said it when HE was on this earth, having a crazy time of His own... the Bible says He went up on a hillside and talked to people and said THIS... Jesus knows how crazy this world is, and the things we worry about are things that people have always worried about... "making it"... enough food, some clothes, a place to sleep tonight, the things we need and Jesus even knows about the things we want that are not needs and He will talk to you about those too... friends, if you need peace today, Jesus sent His Ghost to you so you need not worry about ANYthing... I know, crazy, but true... and awesomely true! Yayyy! Thank you Jesus Christ!
