On my early morning walk, feeling the weight of the world on my shoulders, I glanced up through a small clearing in the trees. In one quick glance, I noted the sun, 2 airplanes at different elevations and going in different directions, an eagle, and a common sparrow.

I never question whether or not the sun will rise–I just look forward to basking in its warmth. When I fly, I sit back in my too-crowded airplane seat and busy myself reading a book or writing my own. I never worry about how the pilot will get me to my destination, I just trust that he will. I never get fearful those birds will drop from the sky (just maybe WHAT they will drop :).

To my meek human mind, I don’t know how all those things defy gravity. I just trust God is going to keep them there. And I trust Him for a host of other things too: like keeping the earth spinning in orbit, keeping the sharks and whales in the sea and off the land, that summer’s heat will end and fall will come, etc.

If I am willing and able to trust God with such big seemingly impossible things, why do I struggle to trust Him with the aspects of my life that aren’t as spectacular? The washing machine repair, a misunderstanding with a spouse, a college acceptance, or enough funds at the end of the month to pay the bills?

I’ve often said “God not only owns the cattle on a thousand hills, He owns all the hills.” His resources are unlimited, His love is unfailing, His promises are true, and His plans are always good. He is trustworthy.]

“And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19 NLT, emphasis mine).

And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19 #BibleVerses #Christianity #faith

I love that simple little 3-letter word, “all.” God doesn’t promise to occasionally meet our needs when the whim strikes Him. He promises to take care of every. single. need.

What needs do you need to entrust into His care today? Will you trust Him?

Because of Him, #PeacePrevails
