O How We Forget

As a child, I remember singing a chorus that said, “He’s got the whole world in His hands.” I loved singing that song, and doing all the hand motions with my friends at church. We would get to stand before the whole church on Sunday night, and sing a couple of songs. We always brought the house down! We must have been great singers or just really cute kids, because they always clapped.

But if we believe God has the whole world in His hands, and He is in total control, why do do worry so much? If He has has everything in control, surely He can take care of us. Matthew 6:25-27 Jesus says, “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air, they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet the Heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who are you by worrying can add a single hour to your life?

If His eye is on the sparrow, He will surely watch over us. He is about to raise a beautiful sunrise just to see you smile. He is working for you without you even asking! That is real love! God didn’t have to make the sun rise this morning, and He didn’t have to give us His Son. But He did! Thank Him for His amazing love and always going the extra mile to display it. Lay worry aside and trust in His goodness! Love y’all!
