Who gave himself a ransom for all (1 Timothy 2:6 KJV)
Jesus willing gave His life to suffer and die a cruel death in order for us to be free from sin. He ransomed you and me. Why, would we need to be ransomed? Sin in the Old Testament always had a price tag attached to it. God always required a payment in the form of a sacrifice or imprisonment to a neighboring country. Blood was the payment needed to appease God. Jesus became the ultimate sacrifice for sins once and for all. Jesus out of His great love for us gave up His own life so therefore will He not also provide everything we need in this present life ….spiritually….mentally…..and physically!!!! At any time he could of called angels to come a rescue him from His pain and suffering. Just look at Matthew 26:53 Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?
Not only did Jesus do this for us but look at what God the Father sacrificed just for you and me!!
He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? (Romans 8:32 KJV)
Worrying and fretting is a thing of our past they should NOT even be in our vocabulary!! Ever!! Especially when we have the great God of heaven watching over us continually. He may not always give us what we like or want but he will always give us what we need in His timing not according to ours. Encourage yourselves with the following scriptures in Matthew and always keep your focus on Him.
In Matthew 6:25-34 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
27 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.
34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
God will provide for our every need so that we can “seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
Keep strong in the faith for God is always there when you need him. Never give up my brothers and sisters in Christ. Faith will move mountains. Faith will heal the broken spirit. Faith will strike down the Goliath’s that come to destroy you. Faith will lift you up and cause to you to stand on the solid rock of Christ.
I encourage you to strengthen your faith in the scriptures for without faith it is impossible to please him. Remember Jesus loved you enough to die for you. He is watching over you this very minute.
