For some time I’ve had fearful thoughts running around in my head. You know, the kind which start out, “What if…? What if this happens? What are you going to do when…?” Since I don’t know the answers to those questions, the thoughts provoked a lot of anxiety.
Recently I’ve been spending more time reading the Bible. The verses which seem to jump out at me are those which speak of God’s sovereignty, and His character—His goodness. I’ve also spent time reflecting on the fact that life is lived one day at a time. I can’t “hurry” tomorrow along so I can see what I have to deal with. God has hidden tomorrow from me. I believe this is a type of discipline, so I’ll walk by faith in Him.
Tomorrow will bring challenges, but by God’s grace it will also bring provision for those challenges. I don’t see the provision for tomorrow because I’m not there yet. I don’t need tomorrow’s provision for today. God does not waste His provision. God’s help will be there when I need it.
These reflections bring me peace. They are the answers to the questions which put my mind in turmoil.
Some Scripture verses to think about: Matthew 6:34; Exodus 16:17-21; Philippians 4:6,7,19; Psalm 27:13,14; Psalm 145:3-10.

Yes, we are safely in His hands provided for every day, precisely what we need. Great thoughts, thank you for the encouragement.
Thank you, for your encouragement!
“God does not waste His provision.” Amen, Scribelady! Your post reminds me of the children of Israel who collected manna each day out in the wilderness. When they tried to collect too much for one day it always went bad. God wanted them to trust Him daily. Your post reminds us that He still wants us to trust Him moment by moment. Blessings!
Thank you, and blessings to you in trusting God.
Thank you for sharing your reflections and the scripture verses. The verse that resonated loudest with me today was Psalms 27:13-14.
Thank you. I have what I call “Faith Checks” to send to people, and one of them is Psalm 27:14.
That’s exactly how I was feeling yesterday … and only knowing I am in God’s hands and care brings real lasting peace. Thanks for posting this!
I’m so glad it was helpful to you. That made my day! 🙂
