The world is stressed out, anxious, and worried…usually on survival mode. Do I live in that world? Good news! As a follower of Yeshua Jesus, I do not need to live that way!
Read Matthew 6: 25-34. Here Yeshua tells us that we should not live that way. If we seek and follow Him as our first focus and priority, then He will make sure we have all we need. And we are not supposed to worry about the future, rather take things as He leads, even if He leads only a day at a time.
We are not supposed to focus on gathering and storing worldly riches. Remember, He previously told us to focus on heavenly treasures back in verses 19-21. And remember how the Holy Spirit reminded us recently about Psalm 23? Yeshua Jesus is our Good Shepherd. He takes care of His sheep! Why should we worry, be stressed out, or be afraid? We are to look up to Him and trust Him at His word! When we know Him and His character, it should be easy to trust Him, have faith in Him. When we go to Him and stay by Him to feed in His green pastures, He feeds us love, peace, fellowship, and contentment in all things and all situations. We can have the same experience as Paul….
“Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content” Philippians 4:11.
Build and stay inside the house on the Rock. Get in and stay in the cleft of the Rock. Live in the pastures of the Good Shepherd! It is such a wonderful place to be!
