“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 store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are?” (Matthew 26:25).
We were never designed to carry the weight of worry. And yet, it takes intention to live free of it! Worry is mediating on the worst possible outcome – let’s make this day when we choose hope instead of worry.
Aren’t you more valuable to God than the birds of the air? Yes you are, your life is a treasure to God, and He cares deeply about each detail of your life. Exchanging worry for hope seems like a simple concept, but that switch in perspective invites God’s wisdom and favor to flow through your life.
Bob and I setting this day apart to pray for you and your future. And we declare to you today that in Jesus Christ, you have hope! Looking at your life and the life of your family through the grid of HOPE changes your circumstances! His mercy is new for you this morning - great is His faithfulness! As sure as that old song sings in my head, “Because He lives, I can face tomorrow, because He lives, all fear is gone, because I know-oh-oh he holds the future…and life is worth the living JUST
because He lives!”
Nobody is exempt from having to face fears that want to paralyze us, but as the
Family of God, we have the privilege of being exempt from those thoughts robbing
us of a day of miracles, hope and joy unspeakable! As we pray for you today, we are adamant about YOU living a life of peace, void of fear, and fully persuaded that you are protected, provided for and promoted. Not to mention you are loved perfectly. You are loved, you are valued and nothing can separate you from the Love of Jesus.
Today is my day to bask in the Love of Jesus. I refuse to let worry rule my thoughts. If worry or fear happens to come knocking at the door of my mind, I am ready to resist, and I am convinced that God did not give me a spirit of timidity, but of power and of love and of a calm and well-balanced mind. Discipline and self-control empower me to take every thought captive to the obedience of God’s promises.
Your best days are ahead!
Lots of love in Jesus,
