Jesus spoke a lot in parables in order to help people see what he was trying to communicate. Remember the little story I told you about Philip the Fish? That was a parable to help you see something I think is very important. Life is not designed as this trouble free journey of wonderfulness where everything goes just exactly the way we plan it to go.
This worry thing is a major strategy of God's enemy Satan.....to thwart God's plan and achieve Satan's plan to steal, kill and destroy everything God created and called good. That why it is so important to abandon ourselves to God, trust Him and stop our worrying like He tells us too. If He takes care of the lilies in the fields and the birds in the air....how much more then will He take care of us?
Remember the parable of the Sower and the Seed? He explained the parable to the disciples and told them that the seed that fell among the thorns choked out His life. Jesus is the Living Word... He sows Himself in our hearts... then the enemy brings all his lies, situations, circumstances....the cares, the worries, the pressures, the difficulties of life in this world.... and then dares you to trust God instead of yourself.
"As for what was sown among thorns, this is he who hears the word, but the cares of the world and the delight in riches choke the word, and it proves unfruitful."
The cares of the world and the delight in riches simply choke out the Living Word (His life) in us. It would be a good time to turn that one around..... refuse to listen to all that stuff and start believing what God says instead of what the enemy says. Become this man instead.....
".....the man who hears the word and understands it; who indeed bears fruit, and brings forth (that fruit) .... a hundredfold.......
How about a fruitful, worry free life, knowing that the living God, the creator of all things, really has everything in control regardless how messed up things look. Life will become the most exciting adventure you could ever imagine..... besides... it's fun watching Him clean up all those messes!
