“ (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.” (Matthew 6:32).
Christ makes no less of our trust for temporal things than He does for spiritual things. He places a good deal of emphasis upon it.
Why? Simply because it is harder to trust God for them. In spiritual matters, we can fool ourselves and think that we are trusting when we are not, but we cannot do so about rent and food, and the needs of our body. They must come or our faith fails.
It is easy to say that we trust Him in things that are a long way off, but there can be no trifling about it in things where the faith must bring practical answers. It is easy to have faith for our needs and to trust Him when the sun is shining.
But let some things arise which irritate and rasp and fret us, and we soon find whether we have real trust or not. And so the things of everyday life are tests of our real faith in God, and He often puts us where we have to trust for tangible matters–for money and rent, and food and clothes.
If you are not trusting here wholly, when you are placed in such tests you will break down. Are you trusting God for everything through the six ordinary days of the week?
Let us not give up in our quest for the mission ahead. Our faith must be anchored in Jesus alone to be overcomers in this wicked and perverse generation.
