This week we had two devos focused on fear and comfort and how we need to grow in seeking the Lord in our fear and relying on Him for our comfort. I then read Matthew 6:25-34 differently than I have before. These verses make it clear how ridiculous it is to worry about food and drink or clothes because if God takes care of birds and flowers then He’ll care for us. But really from the beginning the focus is this: “Is not life more important than food and the body more important than clothes”. When I list the things I worry about very few of them are focused on survival. Most of them are instead focused on comfort. Will I be able to afford this or that, will I be able to retire early, what will happen if this minor disaster happens. My worries are directly related to my desire for comfort. The more comfort I pursue outside of God the more things I have to worry about. This is convicting to me and I hope it’s eye opening for you as well. Join me in seeking ways to rely on God. I believe it will definitely make us more uncomfortable but hey, is not life more important than comfort?
