August 4, 2020 Spirit Meat Devotional :- GET RID OF WORRY – MATTHEW 6:25-34
God wants us to operate like those birds in Matthew 6:26. You have never woken up in the morning to see a bird by your window saying, “Excuse me, no breakfast this morning?” They have never complained to anybody. God supplies their food. However, birds still have to fly; they have to move around to locate what God has provided for them to eat for that day. The lion still has to hunt in the bush, but, surely, it would get something. They do their part, and so you must do your own. God has arranged it that every animal gets something to eat – even the animal that the lion will eat would have eaten before the lion gets it as its prey.
The truth is that as powerful as God is, He cannot work in an atmosphere of worry. This is the more reason why many of God’s people do not experience His power and involvement in their lives; they create a toxic atmosphere around their spirit— an atmosphere of worry, tension, and unforgiveness.
God wants us to learn from the birds, He wants you to operate like that by just enjoying yourself every day of your life. Though there are challenges in life with its ups and downs, these are part of what makes you who you are supposed to be. If you have a life where there is no challenge, you would not develop at all.
Therefore, do not see those challenges and situations as enemies; see them as provisions that God has made available for your growth.
PRAYER: Dear Lord, I rebuke every spirit that wants to create an atmosphere of worry around my life and affairs in Jesus name.
