Read: Matthew 6:25-34
When you are worrying about how things would work out, look at the birds in the air. Look how carefree they are. They are worried about nothing. Looking at God’s creation is a daily reminder of how God provides for His creation. Matt. 6:26-27 says, “Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?” God cares for the birds in the air that they neither have to sow nor reap, yet God provides them food. We are more valuable than birds, created in His own image. Then imagine, how much more caring God is towards His people.
We are much worthy in God’s eyes. He keeps us as the apple of His eye and hides us under the shadow of His wings (Ps. 17:8). Imagine how God took care of Joseph, when his brothers sold him to the merchants from Midian, away from his family who hoped not to see him again. God had a plan and purpose in Joseph’s life. Although he had to go through painful situations, God gave him favour wherever he went. Joseph was a leader in training wherever he was placed, in Potiphar’s household, and in the prison. He trusted in God and He made Joseph second in command to rule Egypt (Gen. 41:41-46).
Jesus gives us the assurance to “Cast all our burdens on Him for He cares for us” (1 Pet. 5:7). In God’s eyes, we are precious, though we are unloved, abandoned, mistreated, or poor. Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all of life’s necessities will be given unto you (Matt. 6:33). He will give you enough for your sustenance and lead you through green pastures and still waters. God has a purpose in your life and will fulfil it according to His will. There is no need to worry and you can trust that God is able to help you out.
