Day 12- Luke

Read Luke 12.

Spotlighted Scripture:  Read Luke 12:25-26, 29-31.

God will provide so don't worry- easier said than done!

Verse 25 tells us that we can't add time to our life by worrying- we actually lose time when we are consumed with worry.  Worry is a waste of our time & energy- it produces nothing good.  The only time worry is good is when we turn it into prayer which draws us closer to God.  Philippians 4:6 tells us to "not be anxious about anything but in everything by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God".
  • Take time today to stop worrying- everytime you find yourself worrying, turn it back to God in prayer. 
Verse 29-30 says to "not set your heart on what you will eat or drink".  Instead "seek his kingdom and these things will be given to you". 
  • What is your heart set on?  How does that show in your daily life?
  • Ask God to show you how you can seek His kingdom first.  Start with the little things- God calls us to be faithful in the small things. 
"It does require the supernatural grace of God to live 24 hours of every day as a saint, going through drudgery & living an ordinary, unnoticed & ignored existence as a disciple of Jesus.  It is engrained in us that we have to do exceptional things for God- but we do not.  We have to be exceptional in the ordinary things of life and holy on the ordinary streets among ordinary people and this is not learned in 5 minutes".  (Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest)
