Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. …Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow seed 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? …Your heavenly Father knows what you need. …Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
God calls us to trust Him one day at a time. We do not know what tomorrow holds. But He does. We cannot control what tomorrow brings. But He does. We fearfully imagine situations coming upon us which we cannot imagine being able to make it through. But He assures us that He will give us what we need according to the day, that is, when we need it. We tend to want it in advance, so we can trust in what we have, rather than in Him. But He wants us to rest in His love–the measure of which He proved beyond question in “giving His one and only Son, so that whoever trusts in Him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16). “If God did not spare His own Son, but gave Him up for us—how will He not also, along with Him, graciously give us all that we need?!” (Romans 8:34) Let somebody know today of a specific need you prayed for on their behalf today.
