Consider the Lilies


We saw last week that we trust God by having a firm belief in His reliability, truth, ability, and strength.  That trust often falls into one of two categories:  Trusting Him for our needs and trusting Him to get us through hard times.

 

With inflation through the roof it is easy to wonder how we’re going to manage financially.  We spend a lot of time figuring out the best way to earn money, and then how best to save and spend it so it will cover all our needs.  But God said we can trust Him with everything.

And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?  So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.  Matthew 6:30-33

And what about when things are really tough?  Someone you love faces health issues or even dies.  Your best friend betrays you and you feel like you have no one to turn to.  You don’t get into the university program you wanted and you don’t know what to do next.

 

There are so many things we face that are too hard for us to face alone.  But God promises to see us through.

 

What is the price of two sparrows—one copper coin? But not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it.  And the very hairs on your head are all numbered.  So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows.  Matthew 10:29-31

 

Whatever you face today, trust God.  You can count on Him.

 

How great is our Lord! His power is absolute!  His understanding is beyond comprehension!  Psalm 147:5

 

Keep Seeking the Kingdom!
