The first part is for June 23,
I can be certain there are no lonely roads, no darkened houses, no hospital waiting rooms, no places at all that He is not there to comfort, sustain and strengthen me.
BELIEVE GOD FOR EVERY NEED
Matthew 6:30-33, “Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.”
Once we believe that most important step to victory over worry, then we will understand:
Philippians 4:19, “But my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”
Not our wants, but needs. Don’t allow your concern for tomorrow to rob you of your joy and peace today.
I am reminded of the story of a farmer with a flock of chickens. Among the chickens was a rooster whose crowing bothered a neighbor. The farmer said, “He only crows a few times a night.” “Yes, but waiting to hear when he’ll crow next keeps me awake.” Isn’t that just like us?
Why not claim the following verses right now?
Matthew 6:34, “Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.”
Philippians 4:6-7, “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
Then we, too, will find rest for our souls and not anxiously await the next crow of a rooster.
This is for June 24th
“WILL THE TEARS EVER STOP FLOWING?”
Verse 6 I am weary with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to swim; I water my couch with my tears.
Recently I heard of a mother who had lost her twenty-three year-old daughter, and I was moved by one of her statements, “Will the tears ever stop flowing?” In answer to her own question, she said, “No, I doubt it, because there is not a day in my life that she is not missed. I look up into the heavens and realize that the lives she touched in her short life will live on forever.”
Do you ask yourself and wonder if the tears will ever stop flowing? Sometimes they seem to fall like showers, but at other times you wonder if anything ever causes you to shed a tear. I believe both are absolutely normal. I know of people who have no difficulty shedding tears over emotional or sensitive issues that come into their lives; while others seem to move along in life as though they are made of steel and never shed a tear.
