Please read Matthew 6:25-34. Garry and I were led to share these scriptures before going to bed, knowing we need good rest and sleep before our next day at work. God uses us to serve and help homeless in our community. “Therefore, I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?” (Matthew 6:25 LPB)
Through the pandemic, we faithfully listened to Dr. Charles Stanley on Sundays and purchased his Life Principles Bible. We enjoyed our Sunday time with him and hearing his new approach to daily life in Christ. We had time to watch and listen to others as God led us through the Holy Spirit.
God has always led me to read the Word in different bible translations. I’ve read bibles for the Deaf, King James, The Message Bible, Recovery Devotional Bible, Today’s Parallel Bible, Amplified Bible, Complete Jewish, Catholic, and other bibles. I want the whole truth and the Holy Spirit’s leading.
“Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? Therefore, do not worry, saying what shall we eat? Or what shall we drink? Or what shall we wear? For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. (Mark 6:27-32, LPB)
“And when you pray, you shall not be like the hypocrites for they love to pray standing in the synagogue and on corners of streets that they may be seen by men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. …when you pray to your Father go in the secret place and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.” (Mark 6:5-6)
We are called as “children, to obey our parents in the Lord for this is right. Honor your father and mother… that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.” (Ephesians 6:1-3) As parents we must train, teach, and admonish our children with goodwill… doing service as to the Lord and not to men.
Each of us is called of God to serve and use our God given gifts daily. Jesus IS the answer! We are called to follow Him, His example—moment by moment! Jesus is the perfect one—follow His example.
“Nothing is impossible with God.” (Mark 10:27, GNB) When we obey and thank Him, He gives us our heart’s desires.
