A Recent Revelation from Reading

Revelations of God truly can come from anywhere, even an English lesson.

A little while ago, I was doing English (I’m homeschooled for anyone who’s new), and the lesson was on a piece of literature that discussed unfairness, persecution, and the Christian’s reaction to such things - or at least what the Christian’s reaction should be. It directed me to several Bible verses, all of which basically said, “Turn the other cheek.”

“But,” I thought, “I can’t do that! I’ve gotta protect myself!”

And all of the sudden, this little voice just came to me and it said, “God will take care of you.”

Of course, human as I am, I tried to argue, “But God, I can’t do that. I gotta keep myself safe, keep people from walking all over me.”

But there it was again: “God will take care of you.” The words just came back, simple as that. Like this little whisper of comfort.

And that was when I realized it: I don’t HAVE to do anything. Not that I can just sit on my bum, twiddle my thumbs, and expect everything to work out for me, but I don’t have to worry about the stuff I don’t have control over. Like people hating me because of my faith or the color of my skin. I don’t have to fear rejection or never getting a boyfriend. I don’t have to worry about not getting good enough grades or making enough money to support myself.

Because God will take care of me. Because He is a loving father, a perfect father. Better than all of the number one earthly fathers put together and multiplied by infinity; He is beyond all of that. And He loves me.  Of all the things He could choose to do, He chose to love me and take care of me.

Now does this mean that I’m suddenly going to become a pacifist, throw all of my money away, and spend the rest of my days on a city sidewalk with a cardboard sign saying, “Jesus loves you”? 

Um... no. Of course not.

But what it does mean is that I don’t have to worry. I don’t have to fear or doubt. I can just go through my life, having fun and doing the best I can, and God will take care of the rest. God will take care of me.
