“That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to Him than they are? Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? “And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, He will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith? “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and He will give you everything you need. “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today. Matthew 6:25-34
1 Chronicles 16:35 Say, “Save us, Savior God, round us up and get us out of these godless places, So we can give thanks to your holy Name, and bask in your life of praise.”
Galatians 6:7 Don’t be fooled. You can’t outsmart God.
Many people in recovery learn to say the right things and do the right things thinking that is what recovery is all about. It isn’t. Recovery has nothing to do with what we say and do and everything to do with what God does in and through us.
Foolish attitudes and behaviour have no lasting value in our lives. The most foolish thing any of us can do is think we can achieve recovery on our own. We all need His forgiveness and we all need his help to change our lives and repair our relationships.
Before deciding to embark on any missions of repairing relationships we need to spend time alone with God and ask Him to prepare the way forward for us.
- Have you prayed over your list of people and asked God to prepare you to meet them?
Psalm 34:8 Open your mouth and taste, open your eyes and see— how good God is. Blessed are you who run to him.
