Quote: The Good Life Without The Sweat

25 Apr

Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them.  Are you not of more value than they? – Matthew 6:26

Most people are of the opinion that the good life does not happen without hard work and buckets of sweat.  They believe that to achieve success, you first need to have this educational certificate, that professional qualification, this particular job and that many years of hard work.  I have good news for you: God has a better way.

We all must work, but the world wants you to believe that there is a natural process of sowing, reaping and gathering, accompanied by waiting, toiling and stress, before the good life actually comes.  But God says, “My people do not need to go through this natural process to enjoy the good life for they are not of this world’s system.  They can operate out of My economy and I can give them the good life straightaway!”

In the same way that God feeds the birds which do not go through the sow-then-reap-then-gather system of the world, He wants to and will do much more for you!  Your heavenly Father wants you to know the generosity of His heart toward you and how much He wants to make you successful.

Today, God wants you to know that you are not of the world’s system.  You are of the kingdom of God—the same kingdom that feeds the birds that do not toil, but simply trust their Creator for all their provisions in life.  Be convinced that you are of more value to your heavenly Father than the birds, and let Him give you the good life without the toiling and laboring of the world.
