No good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly.
Sometimes it is easier to trust the Lord with our eternal salvation and destiny than with our daily needs. I know this can be true for me. I can worry about all of the little daily things that we may encounter, but not give any concern or reflection about my eternal destiny all day long. But if God will freely grant to us this great eternal blessing, will he not also give us the little daily needs?
Those who walk in the light of the gospel of his glorious grace need not be anxious about the daily needs of life. If God so feeds the birds of the air, will he not also freely give us all things necessary?
Trust in The Lord with all your heart this day. Lean not on your own understanding. No good thing will he withhold from those who walk uprightly.
((Questions for the kids))
- What are some daily things that you worry, or are anxious about?
- What good things do you feel are being withheld from you? Are you sure these things are good?
- Do you think it is possible that a God is actually withholding this very thing because it is not good for you?
