Overcoming with Hope
Matt 6:25 “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?
27 Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? 28 “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; 29 and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
31 “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’
ASKING A QUESTION IN UNBELIEF AND FEAR IS NEVER OK…
James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. 6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting (WAVERING)
YOU CAN ASK IN FEAR AND YOU CAN ASK IN FAITH.
“WHAT ARE WE GONNA DO,” LACED WITH FEAR IS NOT OK…
AMP Matt 6:31 Therefore do not worry and be anxious, saying, What are we going to have to eat?or, What are we going to have to drink? or, What are we going to have to wear?
Luke 8:49 While He was still speaking, someone *came from the house of the synagogue official, saying, “Your daughter has died; do not trouble the Teacher anymore.” 50 But when Jesus heard this, He answered him, “Do not be afraid any longer; only believe, and she will be made well.”
Psalm 16:8 I have set the Lord always before me; Because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved. 9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices; My flesh also will rest in hope.
WE LIVE AND MOTIVATE THROUGH LIFE BY FAITH
Psalm 27:1 The Lord is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?
13 I would have lost heart, unless I had believed That I would see the goodness of the Lord In the land of the living.
Psalm 42:5 Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted (disturbed) within me? Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him For the help of His countenance.
11 Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God; For I shall yet praise Him, The help of my countenance and my God.
