Our Storehouse and Barn!
Verse for Today: Friday, April 05, 2013
Luke 12:24 – Consider the ravens: they do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds!
The way God takes care of all His creation is a great lesson in faith for His children. Such care is the most powerful message God wants to send to us today. God wants His children to make Him their source of all care and support. He is our storeroom and barn from where all our support flows. He has all the resources we need in His warehouse. His barns are full to overflowing and will never dwindle. Even when all His children use His storehouse, it will still be full. God’s warehouse is an ocean which never dries and has overwhelming capacity to meet all the needs of all God’s children. He has given us the freedom to draw from His storehouse each day by faith to meet all our needs. First we must have the faith to believe that His resources are for us to enjoy. Secondly we must believe that He has all that we need for our life and devotion. Third we must believe that He has enough and more for all our needs. Forth we must believe He gives us daily so that we do not need to store up for ourselves. Fifth, we must search and seek for His resources by faith and knock at His door for Him to direct our paths to finding what we need. Sometimes He delivers it in our laps or our yards for us to pick. At other times He sends it through His angels. Sometimes we need to go to Him in the shore to see how He has it cooked and kept ready for us. Some other times, we need to sow and water the fields and wait for the harvest. We might work for a wage in the field to which He leads us. But we must remember that it always comes from God as He cares for us in special ways. Today He strengthens us by giving us a lesson from the way He cares for the ravens, and reassures us that He will treat us better.
Dear friend, are you experiencing tension, pressure and anxiety about your daily and future needs? Have unforeseen circumstances destabilized your life situations? Are you facing genuine shortages and insufficiency in your supply line? Just take a look at the way our Heavenly Father looks after the ravens by supplying all their needs. God wants you to learn great spiritual lessons from the ravens who find their supplies in His vast domain. When their Heavenly Father cares for them, these ravens are able to live above anxiety and doubts. They use their eyes to see where their food is kept and go for it. They search around, walking and flying, to find their food. They protect themselves among the trees and the bushes. They use their faculties to weather away heat, snow and rain without murmur. They do not waste their days worrying about their supply lines which are already spread before them by God. Today we have the object lesson of faith from these ravens. If God looks after these ravens so well, there need not be any doubt about us. If God listens to the cries of the ravens for food and help, there is no doubt that He will certainly listen to our cries and will supply all the resources we need to sustain ourselves. He treats us as most valuable to Him and has kept His storeroom full of blessings for our every need. Today let us cry unto Him and claim by faith all that He has set apart for our daily needs.
Psalms 107:9 – (The Lord) satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things.
