July 30 God Has a Plan

Scripture reading: Matthew 6:25–34

Key verse: Philippians 4:19

My God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

Matthew 6:25–34 is a portion of the Sermon on the Mount. As we read Christ’s words to those who had gathered along the hillside, we discover a strong calmness emerging from the Son of God.

Essentially, Jesus told those gathered that it was a waste of time to worry. Why? Because God knew their needs, and He promised to provide for each one. The apostle Paul delivered the same message to the Philippian believers (Phil. 4:19).

The thought of God taking care of us is a victorious thought! We know that He has never failed to keep any of His promises. This fact alone should be the end of all doubt and worry, but it rarely is.

Often we become consumed with doubts and fears. When this happens, we have not transferred the ownership of our anxieties to Christ. Instead, we cling to doubt and fear with the hope of doing something to “help” God solve our problems.

If you want to “help God,” try trusting Him. Let Him be God, and you become His faithful servant and friend.

Is there a pressing need in your life? Leave it at the altar of God. God is faithful. He takes into account all that you are facing and all that you will face in the future. He is omniscient, and He loves you perfectly. Whatever you need, God has a plan to solve it.

Lord, I rejoice that You have a plan to solve my every need. You know all I am facing today and in the future. I praise You![1]
