Davidisms: How Much More
I have three proven words of wisdom for you. Words that will fuel your prayer life and grow your faith: How much more.
Jesus taught it. In fact, he looked to nature to make his point. Especially to teach us about the futility of worry.
“Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them” (Matthew 6:26). Birds can’t grow their own food, yet God provides for them.
“Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin” (Matthew 6:28a). Flowers don’t provide for themselves what is needed for survival, God does.
Our Creator cares for everything he created - birds, flowers, grass - no matter how big or how small, God provides (Matthew 6:25-34).
Jesus then asks the profound question: How much more will God take care of our needs as human beings? The crown of his creation! Unlike birds and flowers, we were created in the image of God. We, humans, are the reason he sent his Son to die on a cross. We are the only ones whom God adopts into his family as his sons and daughters.
If God provides for every need of birds and flowers - that will soon wither and die - how much more can we be assured that God will care for us, his image bearers?
How much more. Three words. Keep praying and believing them.
And experience more power in your prayers.
