Trust God Today, And Let His Peace Overrule Your Worry!







“And He said to His disciples: ‘Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat, nor about your body, what you will put on. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing. Consider the ravens: they neither sow or reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you are than the birds! And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? If then you are not able to do as small a thing as that, why are you anxious about the rest?

‘Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass, which is alive in the field today, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will he clothe you, O you of little faith! And do not seek what you are to eat and what you are to drink, nor be worried. For all the nations of the world seek after these things, and your Father knows that you need them. Instead seek His kingdom, and these things will be added to you.’”


– Luke 12:22-31

As a believer, you can hold firmly onto God’s promise that He’ll supply all your needs. It’s a promise straight from Jesus’ mouth in the scripture above, and it’s a promise backed up by God’s ultimate act of powerful love towards you:

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” – John 3:16

That doesn’t mean it’s easy to have faith instead of worrying and being anxious about the daily challenges you face. Worry is a timeless struggle. It’s hard to rely on faith when it comes to your health, your employment, and your relationships. Nevertheless, it is God’s plan for you to live by faith – trusting Him for your daily bread just as you trust Him for His gifts of forgiveness and salvation.

Trust God today, and let His peace overrule your worry. Ask Him for the things and the help you need, seek first His Kingdom, and He will respond.

unfortunately Sir, you like all christians are totally led in darkness. God lay down his law to moses which were the ten commandments. break them once and you don't enter the kindom of heaven. the truth about yesua is after his he died of an old age. some clown edited his lifes truth and two religions were created.one of them was christianity which in comparison is very similiar to kemos in the story of ruth. as both religions break the commandment: though shall not put anyone before God. i.e. as soon as you pray to someone other than God the creator, you break that law. if you can comprehend this, all you can do now is lay the foundations for your next life reincarnation as you will have to come back again till you live a life without breaking the ten commandments before you enter the kingdom of heaven. Sir I wish you well and hope you can see good reason in my statement. Peace!

And that's why Jesus came you know, because we are all sinners who can't perfectly follow the Law.
He came because God is good and merciful and wants to save.
Jesus didn't come into the world to make us follow more rules, how can we think that when He actually died for us!? He died for our sins. What can be more clearer than that He wants to forgive us and hold us and love us? He died for our sins, that's what He did.
He lives and I love Him. I know by His Spirit that He is real. I personally know, as if He's the air I breathe, I know He's alive. And this I tell you, hoping you would change your mind..
I know He lives, my soul is so sure of it. :)

You have shared some interesting comments, totally obstinacy as well as bedlamite. There are way too many errors in your comment than I have time to address this morning, But I will address them at a later time. Thanks for the fodder,

Can you prove that he is not the messiah? He ascended to Heaven and performed all sorts of miracles such as resurrecting people who many saw happen and healing, exorcising and healed a blind and demon possessed man and healed many.

I think and feel the Bible is clear that the Jews are God's chosen people (Genesis 12:2). They were chosen as a nation to receive instruction on Who God is and how to worship Him. Their mission was to embody this knowledge by obeying the laws God gave them and spreading the truth about God to other nations. Since God chose Israel as a nation, His blessings and their obedience were to be on a national scale. As their confusion with the crucifixion of Jesus revealed, this emphasis on the corporate colors the Jews' idea of what being "saved" means.

When Jesus rode a donkey into Jerusalem, the Jews who laid palm fronds on the road were expecting a king to save them as a nation. They expectantly awaited the fulfillment of the Old Testament prophecies regarding the restoration of their kingdom and the judgment of their enemies. The "Messiah" was to be a military and political king that would reinstate their independence and bring peace and prosperity to the land (Matthew 21:1-11).

The prophets do speak of a time of comfort, peace, and joy (Micah 4:2-4; Isaiah 32:17-18; 40:1-2; 61:7, 10), but we now know this promise will be fulfilled at the Millennial Kingdom when Israel as a nation will be blessed and her enemies judged and destroyed. This ethnic/national/political salvation is what Judaism looks forward to, not individual salvation from the bondage of sin.

Judaism does teach sin. In fact, there are twenty different words for sin in Hebrew, ranging from "missing the mark," to "failing at a duty," to "personal offense," to "breaching a covenant." Regarding personal sin, Judaism teaches that the offender must take steps before God can forgive. If he harms another person, he must regret his action, ask forgiveness, and make amends. If this is done sincerely, God will pardon his offense and give him a long and prosperous life—the same promise given to Israel as a nation. But Judaism does not universally teach original sin or that mankind is born with a sin nature.

In Judaism, there is confusion about what a person would need to be saved from or to. There is no central teaching of the afterlife, heaven, hell, or what forgiveness results in other than blessings on earth. Even Jews who believe in the afterlife admit their Bible (the Old Testament) does not have enough information to give a clear picture of what it is like. Based on God's nature, the good will live with Him and the evil will not. But there is still disagreement as to a literal, physical resurrection, and their Scriptures are more concerned with life on earth than life after death. Even so, the afterlife is promised to those who were faithful on earth, not to all Jews as a nation, and certainly not to those who rely on the sacrifice of Jesus instead of their own actions.

Christians believe that we do not have to rely solely on the scant information found in the Old Testament to understand God's forgiveness of sin and His provision for the afterlife. Jesus and the inspired writers of the New Testament explain how the Old Testament points to Jesus as the fulfillment of the law that Jews are so intent on keeping (Luke 24:27).

John 14:6 says, "Jesus answered, 'I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.'" There is no way to approach God for forgiveness except to go through Jesus. This is why God sent Jesus—to save the world from sin (Matthew 26:28). This forgiveness results in eternal life with God (John 3:16). But John 3:18 says, "Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God's one and only Son." There is no salvation without Jesus.

Hebrews 10:1-10 describes how Jesus was the source of salvation even in the time of the Old Testament. The sacrifices were only a reminder of sin. The blood of bulls and goats could not wipe away sin. Instead, Jesus had to come to fulfill the law. The progressive revelation of the Bible means that Jews are responsible for what God has revealed to them. Before Christ, they needed to have faith in a righteous and gracious God (Romans 4:3-8). Now that Jesus has come, they are without excuse. As Hebrews 1:1-2 says, "In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things and through whom also He made the universe."

Within the last one hundred years, the Jews have seen their nation saved. In the Millennial Kingdom, Israel will be a mighty power, peaceful and prosperous. But no Jew will receive personal salvation without Christ. God has chosen Israel to reveal Himself to the world. Sadly, this does not mean that every Jew is chosen to receive saving grace through Jesus' sacrifice.
