YOU ARE MORE THAN THESE _______________________________
Matthew 6 vs
25,26.■”…Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?…Are you not of more value than they?” ~《NKJV》
OUR focused text unfolds the heartbeat of Jesus as He asks thought provoking questions to His audience. On His famous sermon on the Mount, He tackled several issues of which basic necessity of life was part. He admonished that God’s children should not worry about what they would eat, drink or shelter. Because God our heavenly Father is more than able to provide all these for His children. This means that God is very much concerned about every detail of our lives and how we run things down here. And it’s erroneous to project a scenario that God doesn’t care about the affairs of His children. All these things matters to God as well as our spiritual lives.
The word “life” in our opening text refers to “psuchē”, which means “human life”. Thus, the breath of life or the vital force in mankind which shows itself in breathing. So it’s not referring to “zoe”, the life of God. Jesus implies that you are to value and cherish the life you have because it’s more than food or clothing. You can’t create or buy life; it’s of higher quality, then why should you worry about things which money can buy. Many are passing through dishonest means for materials things all because they want to enjoy the natural life. Beloved, there are several honest and better ways to enjoy from the provisions of God.
Do not worry about them; To eat and eat well, Jesus gives you a better picture here: “Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? (Mat 6:26). Reflect on this question. Jesus is communicating the same revelation to you in faith. *Depend on YOUR heavenly Father to provide all your needs. For you are more than these things. He will send good people, creativity, ideas, opportunities, jobs, work and favours your way, take advantage of them and bless your Father in heaven. This is a faith life. Live this way. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you always.
Jehovah-Jireh, my everlasting Provider and Provision. I thank You for inspiring faith in me to always trust You in every aspect of my life. Thank You for causing me to overcome life’s worries and anxieties by faith in Your provisions in Jesus Name. Amen !
