As I write this, it is early morning and the windows are opened. The rain is gently falling and the sweet sound of birds chirping is filling my ears.
My soul is reminded to trust God in all things:
“Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. Aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?” (Matthew 6:26-27, NLT)
We know we are to place our cares in God’s hands, yet at times, we tend to our own cares until we are no longer able, and then place them in His hands.
Jesus reminded His disciples, and us today, to trust in God for provisions. If He tends to the least ”“ the birds ”“ then, He will tend to the more valuable ”“ His people.
My devotional brings a timely reminder:
“Lord, what Thou sayest is true. Greater is Thy care for me than all the care which I am able to take for myself. For too insecurely doth he stand who casteth not all his care upon Thee.”
(Thomas A. Kempis, The Imitation of Christ, Book 3, Chapter 17)
What are we to do with our cares?
Won’t you join me at W2W Ministries here as we look at the wonderful results of casting our cares upon God in prayer.
