Do Not Worry - My Testimony

If you become a disciple of Jesus Christ you don't worry about the things that  the rest of the world worries about. Jesus said to His disciples:"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? 26“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? 27“And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life? 28“And why are you worried about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, 29yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. 30“But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you? You of little faith! 31“Do not worry then, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear for clothing?’ 32“For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33“But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.  34“So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." Matthew 6:25-34.

I want to share with you my testimony.  When Jesus told my wife and me. to return to the US a few years ago, we did not know where we would be living. We arrived with all our belongings  in a few travel cases, clothes and computers. We did not have a car, nor a place to live. Before we left for the US, Jesus spoke to me one night and showed me we were living in a  camping trailer.

The normal questions that anyone would ask are: What veihicle to buy? What camping trailer, and where would we find it?

We prayed and asked Jesus. He told me what  model car to buy. It was not my choice of model nor brand, but I found it and bought it.

We still did not know about the camping trailer and where we would park it. We did not even have truck that could tow one, if we bought it. Jesus spoke to my wife one night and gave her a street name. She told me when she woke up and I recognized the street name, I knew where it was. The next day we drove there and had only travelled a few hundred yards down the road when we saw a camping trailer for sale at the side of the road. I just knew it was it.

We had a look at the trailer and  agreed with the seller to buy it. It turned out that there was a trailer park less than a mile away. The seller agreed to deliver the camping trailer at the trailer park, to park it and hook it up for us. So we did not even need a towing vehicle.

We did not need furniture, as the comping trailer was fully furnished and ready to be used.

We are driving the car Jesus showed us, living in the camping trailer that Jesus chose for us, and we are living where He determined for us and we will be there as long as He wants us to be there, because we are living for Him and His kingdom.

Those who follow Jesus seek His guidance and His will because they live to do His will. He guides their footsteps and determines their life. All they have to be concerned about is about staying with Jesus, following His guidance and doing His will. He knows what we need, even before we ask.

Do not worry about tommorrow.   "But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you."

May Jesus bless you.
