Jesus speaks of grass that is full and green today but tomorrow is cut down. He would have us remember that He gave it life and care.
“If then God so clothe the grass, which is today in the field, and tomorrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith?” (Luke 12:28).
We dare not think He cares less for our needs than He does for grass. He knows full well what we need, whether it is food, finances or clothes.
OUR FATHER’S GREAT PROMISE
“All these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things” (12:30).
Again Christ is reminding us, “Here is all you need to know: Your heavenly Father knows what your needs are. He has already enumerated them.”
Jesus promises, “Rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you. Fear not, little flock” (12:31–32). If we will simply trust Him, our Lord will bless us with all that we need.
GOD WILL NEVER ABANDON HIS “LITTLE FLOCK”
If you are concerned for your family’s welfare in the coming days, I have good news for you: Your children are God’s children. And He cares for your loved ones more than you do. Jesus knows exactly what you all need to survive.
He knows about your need to have a roof over your head. He knows exactly what your rent bill or mortgage payment is each month. He knows about the mouths you have to feed and the amount of food in your pantry. You can trust Him fully to meet all of these needs, because He promises to do it.
