In Matthew 6 we get those verse that talk about trusting God for the basics of life. What to wear, what to eat, etc. Trust him. Easier said than done, I know.

Wow, do I know! I live in more anxiety than I’m willing to admit! (And I happen to be admitting some, so just think…)

So, how do we get to that place of trust?

Three key areas in the beginning of Matthew 6 may give us some help:

Giving
Praying
Fasting

This portion of the Sermon on the Mount is connected in an interesting way. When we learn the joys and discipline of giving, praying, and fasting (along with other tools of spiritual formation) we will find that place of trust.

These verses are a place I will probably visit again this Sunday in our time at church.

Let’s DIG IN to the Word!

 

One thought on “Building Spiritual Muscle

  1. That is so good. And It’s similar to what I was just thinking this morning, Prayer and Giving, especially. Often prayer and giving are sacrifices (fasting too), sacrifices that say, God, alone, is my source.
