Would God Let You Die of Starvation Like He Does Others?

imagesHave you ever read a headline that said: Millions of Birds Dying of Starvation?

Nope… And you never will.

How can I be so sure?

Because God promises he would take care of them.

Matt 6:26 NLT:

Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are?

Just think about this…

If God cares so much for birds…birds. I'm talking birds. Little feathery things that just fly around and make noise...don't you think he's also looking out for you?

But people die of starvation all over the world, right? 

True.

But those people are not putting their trust in God.

Show me a person who has rock solid faith in God yet they are starving to death. Bet you can't find one. I've never heard of anyone having God at the center of his or her life starve to death. Not one.

Psalm 37:25:

Once I was young, and now I am old. Yet I have never seen the godly abandoned or their children begging for bread.

Matt 6:33 NLT:

Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.

It's impossible for someone who makes the kingdom of God first priority to starve or not have his or her basic needs met.

Have confidence in your God.

Put him first.

Do this, and you will always have your needs met.

Here’s the no-fail formula: God 1st = Needs Met.

You're more important than the birds.

Believe it.

Can You Handle 5 Minutes of Prayer a Day? Me Either!

images-3Can You Handle 5 Minutes of Prayer a Day?

I hope not! Why? Well, lets think of it this way…if I only prayed 5 minutes a day, I wouldn't be able to even scratch the surface of all my needs and the needs of other people I want to pray for.

And 5 minutes a day with the most important being in my life?

Nope!

I need more time with God! There's no way I can tell him everything that's on my heart in just 5 minutes.

  • No way I can let him speak to me and tell me what I need to know for my day in 5 minutes.
  • No way I can unload all of my cares on him in 5 min.
  • No way I can thank him for everything I'm grateful for in 5 minutes.
  • No way I can kick back and enjoy his presence in just 5 minutes.

I need more time with Him!

The Simple Solution:

Pray continually throughout the day. It's really not as hard as you might think. Just make it an ongoing conversation.

1 Thes 5:16-18 MSG

…pray all the time; thank God no matter what happens. This is the way God wants you who belong to Christ Jesus to live.

Just include God in everything you’re doing. Like he's your constant companion, always by your side. Glued to you and attached to your hip. Where you go, he goes. What you're involved in, he's involved in.

Makes sense then, that you'd talk to him about the things you are doing each day and night right?

So, can you handle 5 minutes of prayer a day? Yes…and more!!!
