Always sure…

Lloyd-Jones on Matthew 6:25…

Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?

We must not be anxious if we find ourselves in a storm at sea, or in an aeroplane, and things seems to be going wrong, or if in a railway train we suddenly remember that there was an accident on that line the previous week. That sort of thing is abolished if we really get this right view about life itself and the body as gifts of God. They are from Him and are given by Him. He does not just start a process like that and then allow it to continue anyhow, somehow. No; once He starts it He keeps it going. God who decreed all things at the beginning is carrying them out; and God’s purpose for mankind and God’s purpose for the individual are certain and always sure.
