Matthew 6:26-34 and the Heidleberg Catechism 26
Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?
‘And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labour or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendour was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you – you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, “What shall we eat?” or “What shall we drink?” or “What shall we wear?” For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Providing God, I easily doubt that you’ll provide whatever I need for body and soul and I cannot imagine how hte adversity you send my waycould be turned to good. Help me to let go of my need to control and instead entrust my life and future to your care. Keep me fully aware that you have the power to provide because you are almighty God and the heart to do so because you are my faithful Father through Christ your Son. Amen.
Words that I need to live in day by day right now.
