Dissect It! February 2014

Dissect it!

Dissect It! is a newer page we started that helps you understand a Bible passage because we thoroughly go through it.

Matthew  6:28-30 says,

28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith?

Things do not matter, God will provide all that we need and often he gives us much, much more.

I am sure you can think of something that you want right now. Do you have it? Okay, well I have some bad news for you. Though what you want may be good do you truly need it? The answer is probably: ‘No, not really.’ But now think about it: Is there something you truly need that you do not have? If there is, have you asked God about it? And then after asking him have you let it go, and relied on him to provide? The first part of the Bible passage above says, ‘Do not worry.’  God takes care of his servants, his children. He loves us and will provide whatever we need to do his will. He will equip us and help us to do his will.

It seems that with humans when we have the least through a worldly perspective we are the most thankful and tend to rely on God and not ourselves because we know we can’t do (whatever it is) ourselves. We should be thankful for what we have. Everything that we have God has given us. God has given us many gifts including eternal life. Pray right now and tell God thank you. Praise him! Philippians 4: 6-7 NIV says, 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. In every situation praise your maker! For every little thing and every big thing, praise the Lord! God loves us and lavishes us with many things we do not need.

After the passage in Matthew, Jesus continues on to say that we need to seek first the Kingdom of Heaven and all these things will be added unto you. Stuff doesn’t matter and we can’t keep  treasures on earth, so, instead, we should seek the Kingdom of heaven which lasts forever and is eternal
