Have you ever stepped out to follow God, only to discover when you got to where you were going, that it didn’t look anything like you thought it would? Has your obedience ever been followed by trials and testing? This is exactly what happened to Abram after he obeyed God’s call. It all started out very different than he must have imagined, but at just the right time, God fulfilled every one of His promises. If you are faithfully following God, but your life isn’t what you hoped for, keep trusting Him. He will not steer you wrong.
Anxiety and fear are relentless. These are two of the enemy’s most popular weapons that he uses against us. Unchecked fear can keep you in bed for hours past what is healthy or wise. Anxiety can keep us up at night and also show us a fiery anger in unkind speech and hurtful attitudes. Today’s message touches on how we as believers in Christ are not to worry. We are to to remember that if God takes care of the ravens of the air, as well as the lilies in the field, how much more than those are we to Him that He will take care of us.
