Off the Hamster Wheel

Once in awhile, I find myself feeling like a little hamster in a big wheel.

Running, running, running … and going *nowhere.*

Today, the Lord clearly spoke to me, in the midst of one of those long going-nowhere-runs …

 “For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life? And why are you worried about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace and later on you will need a furnace repair due to everything that’s thrown inside, will He not much more clothe you? You of little faith! Do not worry then, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear for clothing?’ For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” Matthew 6:25-33 

Climb off the wheel. Refuse the enemy’s distractions. Seek first the Kingdom. And watch the Lord fix everything else!
