Have you ever searched and searched for an item only to find that it’s in your hand? Maybe a pair of scissors or keys or pen? When you realize it was in your hand you asked yourself, “How could I have missed it?” This is the same scenario a lot of times in our relationship with God “Where is my Joy? Has anyone see where my Joy went? Where’s my peace? Has anyone seen where my peace went? Health? Anyone see where my health went?” And yet God is right here with us and He is all of this and more. So next time you’re missing something in your life check your hand and if your hand is in God’s you will find that what you need is right there in your hand.
James 1:17 “Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow.”
Matthew 6:24-34 “For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the [c]air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? 27 And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life?
28 And why are you worried about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, 29 yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. 30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clotheyou? You of little faith! 31 Do not worry then, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear for clothing?’ 32 For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.33 But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
34 “So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
