Look at the Lilies

I know allot of people that are struggling financially. I know allot of people included. I know people who work, but barely make it by. Chances are, in our country's present economy you probably are one of these people to. I know how easy it is to look at your present situation and just get totally depressed, worried, stressed, confused, or just flat out mad. I know because I have been all of thee above. It's in those moments of despair when we need to remember what Jesus said in Luke 12:27-28 "Look at the lilies and how they grow. They don't work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. And if God cares so wonderfully for flowers that are here today and gone tomorrow, won't he more surely care for? You have so little faith!"

Its easy in times of struggle to think God doesn't care, or just forget Him altogether because were so busy trying to fix things ourselves. But Jesus makes it very clear here that God does care! If God cares enough for a simple flower to give it all it needs to grow, how much more does he care for you! Be encouraged that God is on your side! Don't lose faith that He will provide!
