"The Lord assures us that
we need not be anxious about anything,
but may commit all our cares to Him;
for He careth for us.
A devotional writer Hannah Whitall Smith said,
In her book, (God of All Comfort),
We are all familiar with the passages where
He tells us to 'behold the fowls of the air,
' and to 'consider the lilies of the field'
and assures us that
we are of much more value than they,
and that, if He cares for them
He will much more care for us.
One would think there was comfort enough here
for every care or sorrow all the wide world over.
To have God assume our cares
and our burdens and carry them for us;
the Almighty God, the Creator of Heaven and earth,
who can control everything,
and foresee everything,
and consequently can manage everything
in the best possible way,
to have Him declare
that He will undertake for us;
what could possibly be of greater comfort?"
But, said Smith,
we often don't enjoy God's comfort
because we doubt the power of His promises.
Take God at His Word today.
Today, know He cares for you.
If we want to be comforted,
we must make up our minds
to believe every single
of comfort God has ever spoken.
Hannah Whitall Smith,
in God of All Comfort
