The other day I went to dinner with my family. We were having such a great time with my niece. She was all over the place, having fun and making lots of noise. Tash made a comment that it would be nice to be care free like my niece-no worries and full of hope and joy. Then God spoke to my heart. I told Tash my niece doesn't worry about anything because she trusts that her parents will provide for her every need. She knows that her parents will give her food, shelter and love. That is how we should be with our heavenly Father. We have to believe that we serve a good God and that He will provide for our every need. My niece doesn't worry about her next meal because she knows that her parents will have something for her to eat. Why do we worry? God is our heavenly Father...
“Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead? Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!” Luke 11:11-13
Then Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest? Luke 12:22-26
We have to trust God like a child trusts their parents. Are you worrying about something today? Your future? Your children? Your job? Put your faith in Jesus. Like a good parent, He will never disappointment you. He will always be there for you. Lay your troubles at the foot of the Cross and trust Him like a child.
