KEY SCRIPTURE: Matthew 6:26 KJV 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?
Our key scripture states clearly that God is a care taker. The birds of the air do not engage in any form of food production yet God always feeds them. God takes over that responsibility. 1Peter 5:7 KJV” Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. “We must cast every care unto him. The challenge of most people is the courage to leave the issues of life in God’s hands. For example, how does one leave the threat of COVID attack to God, especially people at the front-line workers. Those who relate with a number of people are in a constant threat of it. There are other pressing issues that may seem to drawn the joys of people. Dear child of God no matter the gravity of the problem, the word of God must be placed above the problem, if you are to be free from whatever threats it may pose. The scriptures give specific actions to be exercised in the moments of difficulty or challenge. DO NOT ALLOW WHAT MEN TALK ABOUT A PARTICULAR CHALLENGE, MAKE IT LOOK BIGGER THAN GOD.
Let’s have a look at some of God’s responses to some of the challenge we may be facing
1 Philippines 4:6 KJV “Be anxious for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” He says we should be anxious for nothing and make our request known to God with Thanksgiving. Thanking God means we are assured of his positive intervention. We must apply ourselves to the instruction as God has given to us. Our reaction to challenges must be that ‘ I will not worry, because that is what God has asked me to do. ‘
2 James 1:2 KJV” count it all joy when you fall into divers’ temptations;” The second instruction is to count it all joy when you face diverse challenges. Please note that, it is doing what the scriptures say that brings about answers. Once again, say to yourself, I will count it all joy” Start singing and thanking God for victory.
3 1Peter 5:7 KJV” “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you”. Our third point is to leave the care with God. Say it.’ Lord I leave this challenge in your mighty hands’
HOW practical can this be? The word of God can be of benefit to us when we mix it with faith. Heb 4:2. Please decide to act on the word of God always. This will establish your roots firmly in the word, and would make you able to trust Him in trying moments.
Learn to say to yourself and various situations that, you would not be anxious about difficult moments, saying that, you give over the problem to God, moves our emotions into that direction. Our words control how we respond and behave in all situations (James 3:2). Maintain your grounds that God is in charge of the situation and you would not worry about it. Please note that God always work miracles when we trust Him
Thank you, Lord, that you are far greater than, any challenge of men. I leave all my cares in your care. You are my care taker. I Rejoice and praise your name for victory. Amen
Hebrews 4:2 KJV'” For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.”
Matthew 10:29-31 KJV” Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father will. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.”
