Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? Matthew 6:26-27 ESV
1. He is FAIR and JUST.
Many times we ask God about how unfair life is. Why good things happen to bad people and vice versa. Why is this classmates got a higher grade bcos of cheating, while I am having late night sleeps to review my lessons, but still I failed my exams? Or why is this lazy officemate got a higher salary than me while I am exerting much effort and having overtimes at work? Before we put the blame on Him, have we asked ourselves why we are getting those blessings from Him even if we really don’t deserve it?
2. He PROVIDES.
God fed the birds in the air. (v26a)
How come that He wouldn’t provide for his sons and daughter which He created in His own image? He valued us more than any living things in the earth. (v26b) Why worry? (v27) No debt is greater than a living God. He will always make a way. None of His children will go hungry.
3. He is full of GRACE.
More often we got angry on Him. Many times in the bible that was mentioned that Israelites are unruly. They always disobey God’s command due to impatience which result to much trouble. But actually, we are not different with them. Usually we SIN – REPENT – REPEAT. Still He loves us. He poured so much grace and love for His children and I think that is enough reason to worship Him boldly.
No matter who you are, always remember that God is with you. He is the alpha and omega. He is the same yesterday, today and forever.
In His grip of grace,
