“Consider the birds – do you think they worry about their existence? They don’t plant or reap or store up food, yet your heavenly Father provides them each with food. Are you not more valuable than they?”
On this beautiful spring evening, as I was sitting on our patio, I noticed two Red Robin hopping in the grass. They began to peck at the ground and started eating a worm. After they finished eating, they both flew up onto the bird bath to flutter their wings and have a bath. It so reminded me of the Bible scripture already quoted. I love watching how carefree they seem to be.
Seems that our world has been turned upside down. So many distractions that grab our attention and cause us to be anxious and worried. At times it is so difficult to keep our mind and heart on the blessed promises of God. Yet, that is exactly what we must do if we are going to experience the peace that the Lord Jesus promises. John 16:33 says, “I have said these things to you, that in Me (Jesus) you may have peace.” 2 Thessalonians 3:16 states, “Now may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace at ALL times in every way.”
“Why would you worry about your clothing? Look at all the beautiful flowers in the fields. They don’t work or toil, and yet not even Solomon in all his splendor was robed in beauty like these! So, forsake your worries! Why would you say? What shall we eat? What shall we drink? What shall we wear? Doesn’t your Father in heaven already know the things you need?” Matthew 6:28 & 31-33.
We must learn to live out of every Word that proceeds from the mouth of God! He has given to us His love letter, the Bible, read it, obey it, but even more, draw close to the Lord and He WILL draw close to you. Commit yourself unto the Lord, trust in Him, yield to Him all that you are and all that you have. Spend time just loving on the Lord and let Him love on you. Be filled with the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will experience the peace that He promised. It is your birthright as His precious child.
