Jesus reminded His disciples that not even a little sparrow could fall to the ground without God’s permission. It is indeed a life-changing moment for a believer, when he realizes that God is 100% sovereign over everything that happens – from a little bird’s protection to the great affairs of eternity.
Can you trust God with your life? Absolutely! He is perfect in His wisdom and ever-merciful in His love. It is all too easy for us to look at our circumstances from our limited perspectives and wonder what God is doing, and at times even questioning God’s love. The real rub occurs, however, when we try to find our own solution instead of accepting God’s infinitely wise plan.
Beloved, we cannot see the long-term, but we can trust a loving Father who is in perfect control of everything that happens. Real peace – a genuine peace – accompanies the realization that God reigns. So, friend, don’t worry – trust God.
Trusting God Today,
