“So then, don’t worry saying, ’What will we eat?’ or ’What will we drink?’ or ’What will we wear?’ For your heavenly Father knows that you need them.” — Matt 6:31-32 NET
Remain loyal to the Lord, you chosen people of his, for his loyal followers lack nothing! Even young lions sometimes lack food and are hungry, but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.—He withholds no good thing from those who have integrity. O Lord who rules over all, how blessed are those who trust in you!
And I want you to be free from concern.—Do not be anxious about anything. Instead, in every situation, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, tell your requests to God.
“Aren’t two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will. Even all the hairs on your head are numbered. So do not be afraid; you are more valuable than many sparrows.”—“Why are you cowardly? Do you still not have faith?”—“Have faith in God.”
Ps 34:9-10, Ps 84:11-12, 1 Cor 7:32, Phil 4:6, Matt 10:29-31, Mark 4:40, Mark 11:22
He spread out a cloud for a cover, and provided a fire to light up the night. — Ps 105:39 NET
As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on his faithful followers. For he knows what we are made of; he realizes we are made of clay.
The sun will not harm you by day, or the moon by night.—By day it will be a shelter to provide shade from the heat, as well as safety and protection from the heavy downpour.
The Lord is your protector; the Lord is the shade at your right hand. The Lord will protect you in all you do, now and forevermore.—Now the Lord was going before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead them in the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so that they could travel day or night. He did not remove the pillar of cloud by day nor the pillar of fire by night from before the people.
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever!
Ps 103:13-14, Ps 121:6, Isa 4:6, Ps 121:5, Ps 121:8, Exod 13:21-22, Heb 13:8
