My Utmost For His Highest : "Look Again And Think"

January 27, 2012

Take no thought for your life.
Matthew 6:25
A warning which needs to be reiterated is that the cares of this
world, the deceitfulness of riches, and the lust of other things
entering in, will choke all that God puts in. We are never free from
the recurring tides of this encroachment. If it does not come on the
line of clothes and food, it will come on the line of money or lack
of money; of friends or lack of friends; or on the line of difficult
circumstances. It is one steady encroachment all the time, and unless
we allow the Spirit of God to raise up the standard against it, these
things will come in like a flood.
"Take no thought for your life." "Be careful about one thing only,"
says our Lord - "your relationship to Me." Common sense shouts loud
and says - "That is absurd, I must consider how I am going to live, I
must consider what I am going to eat and drink." Jesus says you must
not. Beware of allowing the thought that this statement is made by
One Who does not understand our particular circumstances. Jesus
Christ knows our circumstances better than we do, and He says we must
not think about these things so as to make them the one concern of
our life. Whenever there is competition, be sure that you put your
relationship to God first.
"Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof." How much evil has
begun to threaten you to-day? What kind of mean little imps have been
looking in and saying - Now what are you going to do next month -
this summer? "Be anxious for nothing," Jesus says. Look again and
think. Keep your mind on the "much more" of your heavenly Father.
