Bible Ballistics: BBs #161 Can Do Attitude???
“As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all.” Ecclesiastes 11:5
While I can’t know the unknown or hidden things of the creation, I can know the ONE who does know. We often get distracted by what we don’t know, instead of standing on ‘WHO’ we do know. We who belong to the Lord Jesus Christ can stake our claim on the assurances of Who He IS and that He has us in HIS hand every day and in every step we take—even the wrong ones. I may fail but HE never does!!!
“Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
28 And why take ye thought for raiment?
Consider the lilies of the field,
how they grow;
they toil not,
neither do they spin:
29 And yet I say unto you,
That even Solomon in all his glory
was not arrayed like one of these.
30 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?
31 Therefore take no thought, saying,
What shall we eat?
or, What shall we drink?
or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:)
for your heavenly Father knoweth
that ye have need of all these things.
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God,
and his righteousness; and
all these things shall be added unto you.”
So??? Here’s our shot for today! What are YOU seeking? Are you seeking and focusing on the things that GOD can do for, with and through you—as YOU seek HIM? Or are you letting the ‘cares of this world’ keep you so distracted that you have lost your–
“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” — attitude? (Philippians 4:13)
So what’s the key? Remember what Jesus says above:
Things may be outside of your control—but not God’s!
Why fret and worry—God doesn’t and He’s got YOU!
God takes care of nature—HE will take care of YOU!
GOD knows what you need and HE’s got YOU covered!
SEEK HIM FIRST—
SEEK HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS FIRST (not our own)—
HE WILL ADD WHAT’S NEEDED!!! Because HE can!!!
