A song that is often sung at many worship services of the church of Christ is one entitled, “I Know the Lord Will Find A Way.” This song is considered an American Folk melody which was arranged by Palmer E. Wheeler, This song talks about how God always provides and takes care of those who are faithful to Him, I always enjoy singing this song during worship services and even when I am performing daily tasks around the house. It is very uplifting and it has a wonderful message to trust in God.
It is important to remember that God will take always take care of us in our time of need, as long as we are faithful Christians. I remember a wise Christian lady saying once that she had never seen a faithful Christian begging for bread. There is much truth in this statement. How many times have you seen faithful Christians who attend worship services of the church of Christ regularly and who follow God’s Word in all things needing food, clothing, and shelter? I cannot think of any faithful Christians who are lacking in the basic necessities of life. Of course, there are times when Christians struggle financially, but God will always provide for His people in some way so that they will not be deprived of food, clothing, and shelter, for themselves and their families. It may mean that they cannot buy that new outfit at the mall or eat out as much as they once did, but God will always find a way to take care of His children,
Jesus tells us this in Matthew 6:25-34: “Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?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? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.”
Not only does God provide our physical needs, but He will also provide comfort and help with the many challenges that we face in this life. Faithful Christians suffer many challenges in life, many of which are thrown at us by Satan, such as being tempted to sin, and being persecuted by others for being faithful. God provides a way for us to overcome temptation so that we do not sin should we choose to take the way out of committing the sin, and He also helps us overcome persecution from others. “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it” (I Corinthians 10:13) “Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 5:10).
God also helps faithful Christians with the many other challenges that we face in this life. Whether it be the loss of a loved one, relationship issues, or whatever we may be facing, God will always find a way for us to come out of these troubles and be victorious. "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28).
Whatever we may be facing in this life, we should always remember to trust in the Lord to provide for us at all times, and to have faith in Him always. Pray many times every day, read God’s Word every day, and be faithful in all things, and God will take care of you and find a way for you to overcome all of the challenges of this life. We should also remember that God has already found a way for us to have salvation and reach Heaven! The way that God has given us to reach Heaven is through Chris! God gave His Son to die for us on the Cross so that we would have a way to Heaven! In order to reach Heaven, we much follow the Plan of Salvation which is to hear Hear the Word (Romans 10:17, Believe (Mark 16:16), Repent (Acts 2:38), Confess (Matthew 10:32), Be Baptized (Acts 22:16; I Peter 3:17-22), and Remain Faithful Until Death (Revelation 2:10). When the day of Judgment comes and all of the faithful are in Heaven, we will look back on this life and realize how short it was and how insignificant the challenges we faced in our earthly lives really were. Life is short, but eternity is long. Let’s all strive to focus less on the temporary things of this life and more on the real reason we are all here which is to fear God and keep His commandments (Ecclesiastes 12:13)!
