Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble (Matthew 6:31-34).
In these closing moments of the church age, the Father wants to shine through us. As the world situation continues to grow more challenging, our response should be to trust the faithfulness of our God!
An ark was provided for Noah as God instructed him on how to survive the flood. The Israelites were fed by manna in the wilderness for almost 40 years after their escape from Egypt. God provided water for them out of a rock in a desert when no water was in sight!
God fought for Israel when they trusted implicitly in the covenant, and they won every battle as long as they walked with Him. Lot and his believing family were spared the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah as the angel delivered God’s word to them to flee. Elijah was fed by a raven as he sat by a brook. Daniel was saved from the lion’s terror. The three Hebrew men that were thrown in the furnace of fire during Daniel’s time escaped without even the smell of smoke on their clothes.
Jesus fed a multitude with a little boy’s lunch. Peter went fishing and found the money to pay their taxes!
God has a great record of taking care of His people. And He hasn’t brought us this far to leave us to fend for ourselves. He’s planned this day for a long time ago. The prophets have mapped out for us what will occur in the last days, and here we are.
We’re covenant people with the King of the universe! Don’t be moved by the naysayers that predict gloom and doom on us all. The Father will do for us what He has done in the past. He will guide. He will supply. He will set us apart. He will protect. He will empower. And one day, in the thick of the fray, Jesus will appear in the clouds and take us home!
Pray about every event and issue in your life. Believe that you receive the answer when you pray, and praise God for His provision. Expect God to use you to encourage and help others. This is the day for us to shine. This is the day for celebration. Our God reigns. He honors His Word. He meets our needs. Let’s rejoice!
