“Then Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. Life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds!’”
Insight: Jesus is reminding us that He knows what our needs are - and He has a plan to meet them. Having this confidence and faith in God’s love and provision for us frees us from worry and fear. We are valuable to God and He is very aware of all we need.
Prayer: Father, thank You for Your promise to meet my needs and provide for me. When I find myself slipping into worry, help me to remember that You are committed to caring for me and I can rest in Your love for me and release my concerns into Your capable, loving hands. Amen.
