The fact that God is a loving heavenly Father directly causes Him to act in loving ways towards His children. This does not mean that life is without troubles or struggles, but it does mean that we don’t go it alone and have direct help from the God who made all things.  Jesus promised that as we seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, ‘all these things will be given to you as well.’ (Matt 6:33) The Bible affirms this promise in many other places:

  • The Lord bestows favour and honour; no good thing does he withholdfrom those whose walk is blameless. (Ps 84:11)

  • I was young and now I am old,yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread. (Ps 37:25)

  • Those who know your name trust in you, for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you. (Ps 9:10)

  • God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. (2 Cor 9:8)

  • Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. (James 1:17)

The antidote to worry lies in absorbing these truths about God’s character and trusting that out of His grace and mercy, He will meet all our needs and help us in our everyday lives.
