Do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? – Matthew 6:25-27
Within the post “Refreshment for the Body and Soul”, God did something amazing through Moses and Aaron as water gushed out from a rock to supply the need for water to the people as they wandered in the desert. The only problem is that Moses and Aaron took the credit for this miracle rather than giving the credit to God.
In life, there’s always a new challenge so instead of taking the credit for great accomplishments, give credit to God. Take inspiration from the song I Surrender All by Oslo Gospel Choir and surrender all so that God is in control. Then life is lived with staying power and meaning.
