“If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers—most of which are NEVER EVEN SEEN—don’t you think He’ll attend to you, take pride in you, do His best for you?” from Matthew 6:30-33 MSG
Worry can come on so quickly! Creep up in the night or early morning. Fog the brain. Color the day. Sometimes there seems no rhyme or reason why today may have brought a terrible wrestling with trust and battle of the will.
Yet, Jesus said simple wildflowers are there to remind us… like small interruptions and tiny surprises in our path… saying, “GOD‘s near. Look, He cares.“
“What I’m trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God’s giving.” -more Matthew 6:30-33
Stop. Look around. Listen. Notice. Believe. Because He can be trusted. Then wait and see.
“People who don’t know God and the way He works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how He works.
I think GOD longs to show us His Glory! I think He waits for the opportunity to have our full attention. I think He’s thrilled when we truly and humbly want to know more of Him and about Him.
“Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out.” Matthew 6:30-33
It won’t be such a big hairy deal after all. We don’t have to have the answers, or even a strategy for making it work out.
You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.” -the rest of Matthew 6:30-33 MSG
There can be rest… and peace… and trust in the midst.
