In difficult times, Jesus gives us direction, a sound mind, courage and peace. It is said that not even a little bird will fall without our Father in Heaven knowing:
“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?”Matthew 6:26
Inherent to this example is the principle: So long as birds shall fly, we can rely on God to comfort. We can trust in God with all our heart. He is responsible for our creation. If we trust in Him, we have much to hope for:
5) Thus saith the Lord; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord.
6) For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited.
7) Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is.
8) For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.Jeremiah 17:5-9
