The Lord says to the rich and poor alike, “Don’t fret about your worldly possessions. Give Me quality time and trust Me. I am going to take care of all your future needs and supply all the essentials you need to get by.”
This is one lesson every believer must learn and practice.
At this moment, world events are moving so fast that nobody can keep up with them. Violence is all around us and moral barriers have broken down. The implications of current events are too deep and complex to fathom.
Our faith is anchored in this: Our heavenly Father knows us — He knows exactly what we need and when we need it — and the very fact that He knows is proof enough that we are under His care. He delights in us, and we are snuggled in His bosom, safe and sound.
Daniel said of the Lord:
“He knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him” (Daniel 2:22).
God knows all about the dark days ahead and He knows that even this darkness cannot obscure His face from us.
Indeed, our clear path through hard times will be found only in trusting the Lord. He is calling us today to have a simple, childlike trust in His faithfulness.
Let us all keep our eyes on Jesus! Let us trust His great love and care for us. “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you” (1 Peter 5:7).
