*** Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. ***
Put your worries aside; do not allow others to take away your joy; be not impressed by the wickedness around you; let not your mind be filled with fear; rather rest completely on what the Father is telling you in His Word and BELIEVE His promises.
You don't need to suffer if you take God's Word at face value! He is the TRUTH and the LIGHT. Stand firm on His Word even if you see the opposite at the moment.
TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT! The Lord has spoken.
God does not speak to His children just to say something, as we may do, but our heavenly Father spoke the Word in the beginning and it came into existence. He spoke all through the Old Testament and it happened. He is still speaking today.
God looked down from the cloud and the pillar of fire when Pharaoh and his gang pursued His people crossing the Red Sea. Not only was the water divided by God's power, but the Word of God continues to say that the Lord took off the wheels of the Pharaoh's chariots, to make their travelling difficult. NO, not the angel of the Lord... GOD HIMSELF did undo these wheels.
Just imagine the involvement God will have with mankind. How easily can one overlook this without noticing the detail! Again this is precision work and timing. Just read Exodus Chapter 14.
The Lord is never too late, neither too early. We have to learn to trust Him in His judgement about things and time. Trust Him!
The secret of hearing God speaking is, by drowning out all "noise"; nullifying the enhancement of oneself; being humble before the Lord; not going for outward appearance; no desire to be praised by others; but rather simplicity in whatever we do, say, think and are.
Just being a ZERO before God Almighty, so that He alone will be glorified through our life. It is most important to be "humble and silent"; to really understand His way in "hearing His voice" in order to present His Message to His children.
Glory to God!

Minister Dr. Trudy Veerman,
Abiding in God takes more than being saved, it involves commitment to God's word and acting upon it.
