Crosswalk.com

I have been reading a little scripture devotional from Crosswalk.com. Today was about faith. There are some levels of faith...1st level is no faith...2nd level I seem to fall into lately... second level of faith is little faith. HEre is the excerpt from the devotional

As we see in the passage in Matthew, little faith is a worried faith, worried about tomorrow and occupied with lack instead of being occupied with God.

While people with little faith believe God cares, their focus is wrong. They are concentrating on, “What am I going to eat? What am I going to wear? How am I going to get by?”

Now, those are all legitimate things; and your Father knows you have need of those things. So rather than focusing on your lack and being worried about tomorrow, pulling tomorrow’s clouds over today’s sunshine, let your focus be on God and His sufficiency, His care, and His abundant love.

Do not live a life of little faith.

When I find myself worrying over little things and stop to think...I have never gone with out those things before so God will not let me down this time either! Great post!!!

Thanks for posting. I really like the part about "pulling tomorrow's clouds over today's sunshine".

I want to have the kind of faith like the mighty people in the Bible had. It's a constant struggle for me, but I'm learning.
