Everything needed

The Word

Now may the God of peace— who brought up from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great Shepherd of the sheep, and ratified an eternal covenant with his blood— may he equip you with all you need for doing his will. May he produce in you, through the power of Jesus Christ, every good thing that is pleasing to him. (Hebrews 13:20, 21)

Thought

“Do not worry about tomorrow.” These words spoken by Jesus to his followers were shared with unquestionable sincerity and complete confidence in his Father in heaven to fully provide for those on his mission. Nothing needed is withheld to accomplish his will.

Worry and fret still continue their assault on those allegiant in pledge to trust God though, challenging all given to the will of God. To some, it is a slight and momentary thought to quickly dismiss when the reality of God’s ability is recalled. To others however, it is seemingly an endless and near polarizing battle.

God’s will is clearly for us to not worry. In doing so, time is lost and emotions expended on undue concern. God has promised to care for his own. We as believers in Christ bear the weight of seeking his will and living it, to live prudent, non-materialistic, or extravagant lifestyles. To follow the example of Christ, the words of Christ, seek first the kingdom of God, and provision for our God journey on earth, will manifest.

Prayer

Thank you for your provision Lord. Show me your way, your will, and your paths. May my eyes be fixed on the mission at hand and my heart in your kingdom to come. Amen.

“Give us today the food we need”
