Ever look in amazement at the beauty of God’s creation? Do you ever wonder how it manages to survive the weather, the storms, the drought, the passage of time, etc? Consider how “clothed” in beauty this creation is in it’s nature. Even looking under the microscope at a grain of sand or a snowflake is incredible with detail.
Likewise pictures into space reveal His awesome power and vastness in creation. To think that God took such care in everything that He created, it’s amazing! How much more He will take care of you, as the only one in all of His creation, that is created in His image!
So try not to worry, He’s got you taken care of. Trust Him that He is always good, even when you can’t see His goodness. We live in a fallen, sinful world. Bad things are going to happen. There is an opposing force of evil working against us (because we ARE created in His image). He is faithful and true and He keeps His promises through the generations. He is consistent in His word.
Even though He knows what you need, He wants to hear personally from you. Talk to Him, ask Him, then trust His timing and answer. I like to hold on to my worry. In fact, it isn’t until I stop and start praying for my worry and need that all of the sudden it is lifted from me. If I find myself starting to worry about it again, I just remind myself, “nope, I already asked God for help with that. He will take care of me.” Sometimes it requires an action or stepping out in faith to meet Him there. Oh yeah, you know that expression…”Wait for it…wait for it…wait for it…” Seriously, you won’t bring back any youthfulness by worrying, but you can find the joy of youthfulness by letting go! He loves to take care of you!
Matthew 6:25-33, ESV
25“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26Look 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? 27And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?g 28And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, 29yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30But 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 you of little faith? 31Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. 33But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
