God Will Take Care of You!

“The Lord…has given rest to his people.” 1Ki 8:56 NIV

Live for today, and put tomorrow into God’s hands. Begin to eliminate the words “what if” from your vocabulary. God will always be one step ahead of you. “The Lord, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed” (Dt 31:8 NKJV). The reason God is called the “Alpha and Omega” in Scripture is because He not only initiates the starting point of your spiritual journey, He has arranged every step of it according with His will. He says to you: “I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope…when you pray, I will listen…I will end your captivity and restore your fortunes” (Jer 29:11-14 NLT). If you’re fearful of the future, check with the past. “Blessed be the Lord, who has given rest to His people…according to all that He promised. There has not failed one word of all His good promise, which He promised” (1Ki 8:56 NKJV). You will never conquer your worries entirely, for worries, just like weaknesses and character flaws, draw you closer to God and keep you dependent on Him.
For forty years in the wilderness the Israelites never missed a meal. God delivered it to the door of each of their tents daily. And He will provide for you too. “Not so in haste, my heart! Have faith in God, and wait; although he lingers long, he never comes too late.”
