Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 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? – Matthew 6:25-26
We live in a world that seems quite focused on food, drink and fashion, don’t we? It’s easy to become anxious about these things because they represent immediate needs – well – when it comes to fashion clothing – let’s get real – that’s more of a want.
The older I get, the less I stress out about superficial things – especially fashion clothing. Frankly, at this stage in my life, I can’t tell you what the newest fashions are. It’s great to get to the point in your life when you know what you’re comfortable wearing – and you don’t really care what anyone else thinks.
Stress and anxiety in life will happen. It’s what we do with it that makes a difference. If we as Christians can just remember to hand that concern over to God through Christ, trusting that He will take care of us, we will be so much better off in the long run.
The Bible tells us that God cares about the little sparrow – and if He cares about them, how much more does He care about us?
Know today that God will provide every need you have. No, He may not do it the way you would, but that’s why He’s the all-knowing God and you’re not. 😉
We all have needs every day and God knows what they are and He will provide. Yes, sometimes the needs all seem to crop up at the same time, but that’s when we need to keep trusting God to help us. He cares about us – He really does! 🙂
