God Bless you Sister Connie Keyohara for your message to us on this Lord’s Day! God Bless you and yours!
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
I remember when my children were very young we traveled to Disneyland.
As we prepared to travel, because of their child-like-faith, my kids didn’t have to worry about anything.
I took care of everything;
Making sure our car had gas, the tires had air, we had food. I made sure finances were available, that we were safe on our trip and that we had a place to sleep.
Because of their child- like-faith, they just trusted that everything was taken care of as we prepared for this adventure.
This is the type of faith we should have when it comes to trusting God.
First of all, scripture tells us not to worry about tomorrow because tomorrow has enough troubles of its own.
God already knows what’s going to happen tomorrow, He’s already there and tomorrow might not even come.
Tomorrow is not promised to us.
In this world, during these uncertain times, we have to have a child-like-faith.
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
We can’t see God, but we know he’s there. It’s like the wind, we can’t see it, but we know it’s there, right?
We have to trust that God is going to provide everything we need for this life.
Our God is not a God of disorder, if he leads us somewhere, he is going to provide everything we need. Where God guides, He provides.
Just like the Israelites as they went through the desert for 40 years, God provided everything they needed.
Manna, quail and I’m sure after 40 years their shoes were worn out and he made provisions for there footwear.
The manna and quail that God provided for them was only what they needed for the day, they couldn’t stockpile it, or it would rot.
He gave them exactly what they needed.
During these uncertain times, we have to trust that God’s in complete control and he is going to give us what we need, when we need it.
“And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.”
We have to trust God to lead us on this adventure we call life!
Jesus taught us to pray, “Give us this day our daily bread”
Lord; give me neither poverty nor riches ,but give me only my daily bread.
Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you and say, “Who is the Lord?” Or I may become poor and steal, and so dishonor the name of my God.
I’m so grateful for a God who provides what we need, exactly when we need it. Not too much, not too little.
My prayer for you is that you’d trust God to provide everything you need.
