God Wants to Provide For Your Material Needs Too

Nor should you worry about clothes. Consider the lilies of the field and how they grow. They do not work or weave or sew, and yet their garments are stunning. Even King Solomon, dressed in his most regal garb, was not as lovely as these lilies. And think about grassy fields—the grasses are here now, but they will be dead by winter. And yet God adorns them so radiantly. How much more will He clothe you, you of little faith, you who have no trust?   Matthew 6:28-30

For a long time, my purpose in life is to work hard and provide for my family. Noble thoughts, you may think. But God wants you to consider this; the lilies of the fields – they do absolutely nothing at all! They don’t work, they don’t toil and they don’t struggle. And yet, they grow beautifully, clothed by Father God Himself. They simply rest in the provisions of God, basking in the sunshine of God’s love; a reflection His glory. Even the royal regalia of King Solomon cannot compare to the extravagance of God on the lilies.

OK, don’t quit your day job just yet.   🙂

Like the lilies of the field, God wants you to let Him take care of providing for your needs, your family’s needs; and yes, materially too; instead of you striving to do it yourself. When you let go, you will see His hand upon you supernaturally.

“Let Go – Let God”.

The bottom line is: do not worry or stress about your life. Have the quiet confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see but trusting in the goodness of our Lord Jesus = FAITH.

The natural state of humanity is discontent and quiet desperation. It takes a powerful, spiritual presence (the Holy Spirit) to transform anxiety into joyous satisfaction from the inside out. The sublime state of inner peace is not elusive; it is a gift; a gift from Christ, not found anywhere in the world. True contentment is the result of a heart committed to the risen Lord.

At the moment I have all I need—and more! … And this same God who takes care of me will supply (liberally) all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.   Philippians 4:18-19
