Trust Him To Take Care Of You – Pastor Chris
Saturday, December 30, 2017
…If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him (John 14:23).
What Jesus said in our opening verse above is so profound! Imagine Jesus literally living in your house: the miracle-worker sharing the same roof with you! That’ll be the end of all struggles. You wouldn’t bother about how to pay your bills, because you know that, with Jesus, they’ll all be taken care of. I dare say you wouldn’t have a care in the world.
But do you know that’s the mentality the Lord wants you to have? In reality, He lives in you and with you; He’s right in your home with you. That means you should never worry or fret over how to pay your bills. You shouldn’t talk or act as though God is missing or too far away, and you’re clueless as to where He is. Wherever you are is His headquarters. This is why He says to us, “…take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things” (Matthew 6:31-32).
Trust Him for the money you require for your education. Trust Him for your kids’ school fees. Trust Him for the funds to pay off your mortgage or buy a new property. Trust Him to take good and absolute care of you and make your life glorious.
Even if you were in debt, He’s your Lord, and He’s BIG! You don’t need to cry to any human person for help. Act on His Word: cast all your cares on Him and “go to sleep”; take a chill, knowing that He’s got you covered. He said in Matthew 11:28, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Hallelujah!
There’s just ONE thing He requires of you: “…seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6:33). Make soul winning your number one priority and watch Him take care of everything that concerns you.
The Lord is my shepherd; therefore, I lack nothing; all my needs are abundantly supplied, and my finances are multiplied by the power of the Holy Spirit. I have more than enough to take care of others and be a blessing to my world. I have no sense of lack or limitation, for Christ is my sufficiency. Blessed be God!
