“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” Philippians 4:6
The Lord cares for His children!
He knows our needs–and has promised to supply them.
He knows our foes–and will deliver us from them.
He knows our fears–and will make us ashamed of them.
All creatures and things are in His hand, and at His disposal; all circumstances are under His absolute control. He directs the angel, feeds the sparrow, curbs the devil, and manages the tempest!
He is your Father–and His love to you is infinite. You are His delight–His dear child. Will He neglect you? Impossible! Cast then your cares upon Him. Tell out all your desires, fears, and troubles to Him; let Him know everything; keep nothing back. And then in the confidence of faith, expect Him to fulfill His Word, and act a Parent’s part.
Bless Him for all He has given, for all He has promised. Plead with Him for all you may need. But never for one moment, or under any circumstances, distrust Him! He cannot love you more! He is your ever present help. He will rejoice over you to do you good, with His whole heart, and with His whole soul.
“Cast all your care upon Him, because He cares about you!” 1 Peter 5:7
