“NEVER TAKE A RISK?” Wednesday Minute

“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”  Matthew 6:33 NIV


Read:   Matthew 6:25-34


Do you contemplate your every move, calculate the odds and take risk only when you feel the odds are in your favor or do you just rush in?


What if you had one thing that would always be better than anything else when it came to evaluating risk?   What if this one thing were better than hindsight, posted statistics and better than what you can see for yourself?


What is the one thing you can always, always trust?   Faith.  GOD gave you the faith to trust in HIM.   HE did not give you a little faith or a lot of faith.  GOD gave you faith…all of it…so much you cannot even measure it.  All you have to do is accept it and act upon your wants and needs.


Our lack of faith often is a result of our lack of action.   Why should GOD give us HIS strength of faith, when we fail to do our part?   We must do our part.   Do you expect GOD to answer your prayers when you are not doing all…all…you can do on your own?


When we ask GOD to do something, we should already be doing all we can for ourselves.   There is little risk when we ask GOD to help us do what we are already doing.  If want something, rely upon GOD’S faith in you as you go after what you want.


Depend upon GOD when you are doing your part.


Today’s prayer:  “Thank YOU, LORD, for being there when I need YOU.    Help me be assertive in my actions to have the things or situations I am asking of YOU.  Amen.”
