Yesterday morning, I was feeling worried about some things in my life. I opened my Bible and found myself reading in Luke where Jesus says,
“Never worry about any of your needs...if God can clothe the fields and meadows with grass and flowers, can’t he clothe you as well, O struggling one with so many doubts? I repeat it: Don’t let worry enter your life. Live above the anxious cares about your personal needs…your heavenly Father knows your every need and will take care of you. Each and every day he will supply your needs as you seek his kingdom passionately, above all else” (Luke 12: 22-30 TPT).
Basically, Jesus is saying, “It’s going to be okay. Don’t worry. I’ve got this.”
Sometimes, I really just need to hear that: It’s going to be okay. It’s so easy for me to get tangled in the stress of life and the needs I fear won’t be met.
But Jesus says, “Rest. It’s okay.”
He says, I am working all things for your good (Romans 8:28).
He says, I am making all things new (Revelation 21:5).
He says, I will provide all you need (Philippians 4:19).
He says, I am with you (Isaiah 41:10).
He says, I see you (Genesis 16:13).
He says, I’ll never leave you (Hebrews 13:5).
He says, I’ll take care of you (Luke 12:30).
It’s going to be okay.
Whatever you’re facing today—bills, health issues, relationship problems, depression, anxiety, major life decisions, career setbacks, or obstacles to your dreams—I hope you find comfort in the truth that Jesus has made a way and He is watching over you. He is taking care of you. Nothing misses His eye. Even though things may not feel okay today, God’s restoring and redeeming power is at work in your life. You’re in my prayers!
