Awesomeness of God and Worry

28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is ,and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? 31 Therefore take no thoughtsayingWhat shall we eator, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek :) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. 33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. 34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.”  (Matthew 6:28-34 KJV)

Throughout Scripture—Genesis to Revelation—we see how big our God is.  His many attributes are emphasized.  We can learn so much about our Father in heaven by learning about, meditating upon His names and His character.      

With all that has been going on in the economy and in the world in general during the past few years and even more so in the past few weeks and months, it’s easy to fall into the trap of worry.  We fret about the future and how we’re going to make it.  What will happen if…?  How will we make through another week, another month, another year?   

However, for those of us who have a relationship with God through Jesus, we don’t have to worry!  We can be assured that God will take care of us and provide for us.  When all is said and done, God is the one Person who will never let us down or forsake us.  He alone is fully trustworthy and will fulfill each one of His promises to us.

God is bigger than all that frightens us.  We can fully trust Him with the whole of our lives.  He will be with us every step of the way, even when we can’t sense His presence.  We’re to live by faith and not by sight or by feelings.  God will see us through each and every storm of life.     

“Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance?  Who hath directed the spirit of the LORD, or being his counselor hath taught him?” (Isaiah 40:12-13 KJV)

Awesome God, Thank You for being bigger than all of our problems.  Father, sometimes we struggle to remember and acknowledge that You will provide for us.  Instead we worry and fret about how we’ll manage to care for ourselves.  Remind us of Your steadfast love and care for us and how You provide for us.  May we trust You to provide what we need each day.  In Jesus’ name.  Amen.

From my heart to yours,



  1. Kim, yours is the second blog I've read today about the needlessness of worry. Plus, I have a post in the wings about this very same subject! Coincidence? I think not!
    Francis Chan says this about the subject: "Both worry and stress reek of arrogance." Yes, they do when we know our God can take care of all things in His time. What a mighty God we serve!

    1. How interesting, Martha! I agree, it's not a coincidence! I'll look forward to reading your post on the needlessness of worry.

      What a mighty God we serve!!
