"Of More Value"
Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?
Which of you by worrying can add a cubit to his stature?
So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin;
and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
Therefore do not worry, saying, "What shall we eat?" or "What shall we drink?" or "What shall we wear?"
For after all these things the Gentiles see. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. Matthew 6:25-34
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.
Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your hearts.
Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass.
He shall bring forth your righteousness as light, and your justice as the noonday.
Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him, Psalm 37:3-7a
Trust Him! Trust Him with all your needs! It doesn't what the are. He doesn't care whether they are physical, emotional, spiritual, or even financial in nature. He can and will provide! Why? Jesus Himself tells us why. Because 'Are you not of more value.' His love for you motivates Him to take care of you and to provide for all your needs.
Trust Him when He says, "I will." because He loves you and because your the treasure He values most of all.
