“And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.”
Being completely submissive and trusting and putting the outcome of my life into the hands of an invisible being while hoping for the best is pure faith. Wanting to do it and actually doing it are two different things. Fully submitting myself to the Lord is like having patience: maybe I have patience sometimes but not every time. And yet, I believe that God can make my life great “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”
I need to completely submit my will to His will and give all of my life to Him and trust that He’ll make my life great and that He won’t let me down. I need to realize that He’s perfect, always does what he says, and gives the best.
