No doubt we’re all troubled by the state of our world. Over 2000 years ago Jesus gave us fair warning:
“ you will hear of wars and rumours of wars…nation against nation…kingdom against kingdom…famines, pestilences, and earthquakes…”(Mathew 24:6,7).

The Old Testament character Job declared that “man is born to trouble as the sparks fly upward”.  The human condition seems always in turmoil.

But, there’s a comforting word from Psalm 91:
“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I trust’…He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways. In their hands they shall bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone.”

Just knowing that our Heavenly Father knows is knowledge enough. He is sovereign. He is ultimately in charge. Nothing is too big or small for Him. He even “sees the sparrow fall.” So, as Jesus said,”Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” Why borrow trouble from the future? Trust in God is the only sustainable security we’ll ever know. And it’s more than enough.
