One of the benefits of reading the Bible regularly is knowing where to turn when we need to remind ourselves of what is true about our God.
For example, when circumstances disappoint us or perplex us and much about our lives seems quite uncertain.
For example, like today.
And I find myself thinking about
grain stored up in Egypt,
manna in the wilderness,
a widow gleaning in a wheat field,
a jar of overflowing oil,
a shepherd lacking nothing,
twelve baskets of leftovers,
a coin in the mouth of a fish,
an apostle who learned an important secret,
and this promise:
Do not be anxious, saying, "What shall we eat?" or "What shall we drink?" or "What shall we wear?" For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.--Matthew 6,31-33, ESVand this command:
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.--Philippians 4:6, NLTAnd I turn the pages,
and I relax.
And I hear him say, "Trust me, trust me."
And I will.
When have you trusted God to take care of you in difficult circumstances,
and what did he do?
