Look Again and Think!

Posted by Scott on January 28, 2008

Take no thought for your life.

Click link below to study this verse: Matthew 6:25

A warning which needs to be reiterated is that the cares of this world,
the deceitfulness of riches, and the lust of other things entering in,
will choke all that God puts in. We are never free from the recurring
tides of this encroachment. If it does not come on the line of clothes
and
food, it will come on the line of money or lack of money; of friends or
lack of friends; or on the line of difficult circumstances. It is one
steady encroachment all the time, and unless we allow the Spirit of God
to
raise up the standard against it, these things will come in like a
flood.

“Take no thought for your life.” “Be careful about one thing only,”
says
our Lord – “your relationship to Me.” Common sense shouts loud and says

“That is absurd, I must consider how I am going to live, I must
consider
what I am going to eat and drink.” Jesus says you must not. Beware of
allowing the thought that this statement is made by One Who does not
understand our particular circumstances. Jesus Christ knows our
circumstances better than we do, and He says we must not think about
these
things so as to make them the one concern of our life. Whenever there
is
competition, be sure that you put your relationship to God first.

“Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.” How much evil has begun
to
threaten you to-day? What kind of mean little imps have been looking in
and saying – Now what are you going to do next month – this summer? “Be
anxious for nothing,” Jesus says. Look again and think. Keep your mind
on
the “much more” of your heavenly Father.
