“For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.” Colossians 1:16-17
Okay…I’m sure you all are tired of me by now but I have something to tell you……….
ALL things were created by God. Like….EVERYTHING! And I’m sitting here wondering how stuff will get paid…handled….and where it needs to go. NO!!!!! That is definitely not what God intends for me to do with my time. He is the creator of ALL things, including my destiny. I belong to Him…He made me for so many reasons, some (I can’t even comprehend yet….and may never), so there is no need for me to worry about something as trivial as handling stuff He’s already taken care of.
I always go back to Matthew 6:33 in times when I feel like I’m being too overzealous (understatement) in my “taking care of business”. “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” We often refer to that scripture but don’t refer back to the “things” that will be added. Verse 31 says, “Therefore take no thought, saying, what shall we eat? Or, what shall we drink? Or, wherewithal shall we be clothed?”
Like……the stuff we “worry” about will be added to our lives as we seek the things of God! It says it in His word!!! And if we go back just one more verse, it says “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?” (Matthew 6:30) What is that saying??? We serve the very God that made the grass green!!! After it’s been kissed by the sun, soaked by the rain, and frozen by the snow, He makes it green! He revives the GRASS!!! If He created us for HIS GLORY, we’ve gotta know that He is going to take care of us! He is going to provide for us! He is going to love us and nurture us how and when we need it. All He asks is that we let Him and have faith that He will see it through. Don’t doubt Him. God is the ONE that, with a “Let there be…”, there became; so, the answer is YES!, He can handle your “what fors”.
So, the next time you feel yourself beginning to worry, remember that we serve the creator of ALL and He has got it figured out! Just seek Him and He got you!!!
I know I’ve been writing a lot, but I’ve been learning a lot and want to share with you all. I pray that in your walk with God, you see all the beauty in your process….in the prep work. I pray that you embrace it and allow it to “make you”. It will be worth it!
