He Cares for You

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.        Hebrews 11:1 

What do you hope for? Followers of Christ have a great hope for salvation, forgiveness, and eternal life in Heaven, but is there hope for daily living? What can a believer in Jesus count on God for? What can His people receive by faith? Jesus not only talked about eternal rewards during His earthly ministry, He talked about common daily things. Through His miracles, He dealt with healing, deliverance, and meeting physical needs. He talked about relationships and possessions. He talked about joy and happiness.  

Yes, the most important blessing that a Christian can hope for is eternal life with Christ in Heaven. However, believers also have hope here on Earth. Putting your faith and trust in the Lord includes depending on Him for your daily needs and well-being. Faith is substance and conviction. You can count on His promises. Romans 10:17 says, “So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.” As you meditate on His many promises found in the Bible, your faith and hope grow.  

When you are tempted to worry or be afraid, remember that God is your hope. Spend time talking with Him about whatever is troubling you. Offer Him praise for who He is. And, as the words of the hymn say, “Turn Your eyes upon Jesus/ Look full in His wonderful face/ And the things of earth will grow strangely dim/ In the light of his glory and grace.”  

Submit all of the nation’s challenges and issues to the Lord. “Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you” (1 Peter 5:6-7).

25 “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26 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? 27 And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? 28 And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, 29 yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31 Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. 

34 “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
