“Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store 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?” (Matthew 6: 26-27, New Living Translation)
Stop that worrying! Look about you. See how life is cared for, not by striving and fretting, but by simple trust and humble yielding to the law of God.
We may think this kind of logic is for the birds! But, truly, there is a divine law governing us just as it cares for the innocent animals. There is a natural provision for us shown forth in guidance, inspiration, and an abundant supply of just what is needful. As we lift the blinders of fear and doubt, we begin to see this loving care undergirding and infusing our lives.
You are valuable to God. He loves every idea that He saw fit to make. You are at one with all He created, a harmonious aspect of His universe, and so you must be maintained, sustained, and fulfill His glorious purpose.
Life is belittled by worry. We box it into time and pressure and lose Life’s grandeur. If you want to experience a more expansive life, do as the birds do. Trust and live! Listen with your heart and receive what God is already giving you. Stay receptive moment-by-moment. Don’t plan for trouble. Rest in the ability of God to advise, instruct, alert, and provide you with all the nourishment, wisdom, health, joy, and understanding that you need, one day at a time. Naturally!
