    Then he began to denounce the cities in which most of his mighty works had been done, because they didn't repent. 'Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the mighty works had been done in Tyre and Sidon which were done in you, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. Bu...

    The God who made the world and all things in it, he, being Lord of heaven and earth, doesn't dwell in temples made with hands, neither is he served by men's hands, as though he needed anything, seeing he himself gives to all life and breath, and all things. Acts 17:24 WEBWhen I was growing up, we us...

    RHM Devotional: Heroes and Monsters from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the potential of being a Hero, or a Monster, that exists inside each one of us. We get to choose. Once when Jesus was preaching from a boat, He told a parable about a man that sowed wheat in H...

The Birds And The Trees

  • See the birds of the sky, that they don't sow, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns. Your heavenly Father feeds them. Aren't you of much more value than they? Which of you, by being anxious, can add one cubit to the measure of his life?Why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow. They don't toil, neither do they spin, yet I tell you that even Solomon in all his glory was not dressed like one of these. Matthew 6:26 WEB

    The ants crawling along the ground always have plenty to eat. So do the squirrels running along the tree limbs, the birds and the bees flying through the air, the fish swimming in the sea, they are all taken care of by God. Plants and trees that are rooted in place and cannot move a single step, are still taken care of by God right where they are.

    Everything in nature does their part as they are able, and God takes care of the rest. He puts what they need within their reach, even if they are immobilized. We have a giant oak tree in our yard that has never taken a step from where it was born and it is nearly one-hundred years old.

    The birds of the air are taken care of one day at a time. There may be a drought or a famine, and it may affect them for a while, but being that their species is not extinct, they have been taken care of pretty well for a very long time.

    It is always us who start to panic when it does not happen fast enough. So many times I have been concerned about tomorrow, only to find that when it got here, everything was fine. God took care of it somehow. Look back over your life and all that you have been through, yet you are still here.

    I am not saying there have not been times that lacked of wants, times of having less than I wanted to have, or felt that I deserved. The Lord knows that we have seen the unemployment line more than once, but we have never had to go hungry. There was always something to eat and something to wear.

    David said 'I have been young, and now I am old, Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his children begging for bread' (Psalms 37:25).

    So don't panic, don't get anxious about what you think may come. Don't let your fear snowball into something that blocks your view of God. He knows your needs, and you mean much more to Him than the birds of the air, that He also takes care of. He created us in His own image. When the need comes, so will the answer. Just continue to do your part each day and trust that God will provide what you need within your reach.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for providing for me. You are so good to me and I want more of You in my life. Lord, cover me in Your peace. Touch me today and let me know that You are there no matter what I face, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: Good morning! We will be continuing to the next chapter of our online Bible Study tomorrow morning, but for those who would like to catch up, here is the link to all of the chapters. You are welcome to start any time :)! Bible Study
