‘I have never seen good people left helpless.’ Psalm 37:25 NCV

God will take care of you

If you’re worried about what the future has in store, this verse is for you: ‘When people’s steps follow the Lord, God is pleased with their ways. If they stumble, they will not fall, because the Lord holds their hand. I was young, and now I am old, but I have never seen good people left helpless or their children begging for food’ (v.23-25 NCV). Even when we feel like we’ve reached our absolute limit, God won’t let us break. But even if we did, He’d be there to mend and restore us. ‘You will have plenty to eat…and you will praise the name of the Lord your God, who has worked wonders for you’ (Joel 2:26 NIV). We don’t need to have everything figured out. We just need to lean on God. ‘Trust in the Lord and do good. Then you will live safely in the land and prosper. Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desires. Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him, and he will help you’ (Psalm 37:3-5 NLT). God might not give us everything we want, but He will give us everything we need: ‘Don’t worry about these things, saying, “What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?” These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need’ (Matthew 6:31-33 NLT). ‘Give your burdens to the Lord, and he will take care of you’ (Psalm 55:22 NLT). Don’t worry. God will take care of you.
