Are you not much more valuable than birds?
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life…Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
Over the weekend I had plenty of time to take notice of the birds. My friends and I drove to Kansas City, and I couldn’t help but notice the birds. They were so beautiful flying in formation together. My mind went to the scripture above and I heard God saying, “Do not worry, I am taking care of you and you are much more valuable to me than the birds.”
Have you ever wondered why birds don’t worry? It’s because they are secure. Security is a result of being aware of who you are. Birds never strayed from their original purpose in the Kingdom of God. Every day they get their food, provide for their young, and work together without worry. Birds understand and agree with the truth that God provides for them.
When you agree with worry, you are choosing to step out of the provision and protection of the Kingdom. You’re basically saying you don’t trust that your Heavenly Father is providing for you and that you know a better way to take care of everything. Honestly, God will honor your will to provide for yourself, but He will also embrace you when you decide you want Him to take care of those things concerning you.
So, how do you put a stop to worry? Review these key points and action steps:
1) Your Heavenly Father is a PROVIDER and He is more than capable of taking care of you.
2) God’s plan is always to prosper you and not harm you, to give you hope and an expected end. Jeremiah 29:11
3) You are in the Kingdom; there is nothing missing, lacking, or incomplete about you.
4) Agree with your position of power.
Ephesians 2:6 (NIV) And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus…”
5) Concentrate on who you are.
6) Find scriptures that confirm your identity and God’s provision.
These points will help you to become subconsciously & consciously aware of what your spirit already knows. You are a Son/Daughter of the King. You are whole; complete and lacking nothing!
Remember, when Jesus died on the cross He said, “it is finished.” That means everything is already taken care of: your finances, every bill, the spouse you asked for, the success of your business, the degree you started, the restoration of relationships…it is finished.
Genesis 1:28 The Message (MSG)
26-28 God spoke: “Let us make human beings in our image, make them reflecting our nature So they can be responsible for the fish in the sea, the birds in the air, the cattle, And, yes, Earth itself, and every animal that moves on the face of Earth.” God created human beings; he created them godlike. Reflecting God’s nature. He created them male and female. God blessed them: “Prosper! Reproduce! Fill Earth! Take charge! Be responsible for fish in the sea and birds in the air, for every living thing that moves on the face of Earth.”
Are you worried? Take notice of the birds.
