Grace and peace on this fourth day of May Dear Hearts
Today I am reminded that life can change in a heartbeat. Did we ever imagine in January of 2020 that in five short months everything would be so extremely different? Probably not…
But God knew. God always knows. The goodness of God is waiting for us in the future, preparing our path, setting up circumstances to guide our steps.
It is the Lord who goes before you; he will be with you, he will not fail you or forsake you; do not fear or be dismayed.”Deuteronomy 31:8 Revised Standard Version (RSV)
God prepares us for the changes. He empowers us to endure the changes IF…
We Are Not Anxious
“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you shall eat or what you shall drink, nor about your body, what you shall put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add one cubit to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin; yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O men of little faith? Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek all these things; and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things shall be yours as well.Matthew 6:25-33 Revised Standard Version (RSV)
Before they even call out to me,Isaiah 65:24 The Passion Translation (TPT)
I will answer them;
before they’ve finished telling me what they need,
I’ll have already heard.
so…for today, let God be your answer. Trust HIM and be content in HIS promises.
