     Matthew 6:30  NLT

‘And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, He will certainly care for you.’
- The Lord loves and cares for you and this is something you can be sure of.
- He takes wonderful care of all things and this includes you.
- In His unfailing love and care for you, He undertakes to meet your needs.
- The Lord will CERTAINLY take care of you.

Lord, thank You that I do not need to be concerned or anxious because You will take care of me. You know me better than I know myself and all my needs, longings and desires are known to You. So I declare: ‘The Lord will CERTAINLY take care of me’. Amen.
