Who Cares?

Young children who are sent off to school for the first time often feel as though they are facing the world on their own (even though "the first day of school" is almost always a more day-long worrisome ordeal to the parents than the child). And it's true, their "new world" presents challenges, progressively limited to the point of their ability and tolerance, in order for them to learn, and to grow, and to become strong as all others before them have done. But they aren't alone. They have parents, guardians and teachers who are responsible for the safety and emotional security of the little ones. They may feel alone, in order for them to learn to "stand on their own two feet" over time, but they always have many defenders.

True Christians, regardless of their age (although younger people often do not realize or appreciate it, older people experience the very same fears and worries as those younger - they have merely learned how to live with it, as in, live along with it) often feel like little children sent off on their first day of school. The world is not accommodating to what the Word of God truly says. The "nest," prior to conversion, seemed so much easier and safer, but now the "big bad world" awaits the newcomers to take their rightful, and righteous, place in it.

"Casting all your care upon Him; for he careth for you"

The LORD is watching over you. He won't keep you from learning your "lessons" in this life, but He won't permit anything or anyone to stand in your way, if your way is His Way. He will protect you until "graduation day," when "he may exalt you in due time" (see When Will You Be Judged? and Could Christ Return Tonight?).

The Holy Scriptures

"5:6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: 5:7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: 5:9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.

5:10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you." (1 Peter 5:6-10 KJV)

Consider carefully "the big bad world" that The Father sent His firstborn into. The Messiah understands what His people must face, because He too lived and experienced it - and overcame it. Like the Christ Himself, our cares are the cares of our Father.

"6:25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? 6:26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? 6:27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?

6:28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: 6:29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 6:30 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? 6:31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 6:32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. 6:34 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." (Matthew 6:25-34 KJV)
