God Will Take Care of You

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? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. (Matthew 6:26-32)
I live in the Dominican Republic, a Caribbean country that proclaimed its independence in 1844, but which over the years has been struggling to eradicate the deficiencies that affect it.
Like the Dominican Republic, many countries suffer the scourge of poverty, malnutrition and social inequality. Despite the situation, it is normal to appreciate a smile on the faces of its inhabitants, so that is proof that God, the Creator, takes care of his children.
Matthew 6: 26-32 gives us encouragement and reminds us that we can trust that our Heavenly Father cares for each one in any part of the world. His Word also helps us understand that we should not worry too much in this world.
As humans, we try to discover how God is going to work on our behalf. We despair and even lose faith, believing that God has moved away from us. He gives us a promise in his word saying “And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:20)
Today I invite you to place your worries in the hands of God.
Dear Lord, help me depend on you at all times.
