God Will Take Care of You

God will take care of youThinking through the post I shared yesterday, I couldn’t help but dwell on hymns today that focused on the care God provides for us. And I am so thankful (which is the July Blogging challenge word for today). We see his care and concern for His people throughout the Bible – provisions for the Israelites while wandering in the wilderness, giving David guidance through Nathan and others, providing the resources and plans and ability for Noah to build an ark, sending help to Paul after he was blinded, Naomi’s daughter-in-law Ruth working the fields to bring grain, Jesus feeding thousands with only a few fish and loaves of bread. There are so many examples in the Bible.

There are also people around us who can share the ways God has provided for them, whether it is a spiritual care that was provided or whether it was physical need that was met. God loves and will provide for us. This doesn’t mean he will solve all of our problems if we do what He tells us to in the Bible. He won’t miraculously remove any physical ills we have just because we believe. It means we can be secure in knowing, that once we have obeyed Him by repenting and confessing our sins and being baptized, our future is in heaven with Him. Where no moth or rust can destroy and no thief can break in a steal or kill. We are secure in eternity when we obey Him. He has taken care of us through His son Jesus – his death, burial and resurrection. God is good and He will take care of you.

So, this brought me to this hymn – God Will Take Care of You. If you want to listen to a recording of it, visit the Great Songs Chapel site from Oklahoma Christian University.

God Will Take Care of You

Words by: C. D. Martin, 1904
Music by: W. Stillman Martin, 1904

v 1. Be not dismayed whate’er betide,
God will take care of you;
Beneath His wings of love abide,
God will take care of you.

Chorus:
God will take care of you,
Through ev’ry day, O’er all the way;
He will take care of you,
God will take care of you.

v 2. Through days of toil when heart doth fail,
God will take care of you;
When dangers fierce your path assail,
God will take care of you.

Chorus

v 3. All you may need He will provide,
God will take care of you;
Nothing you ask will be denied,
God will take care of you.

Chorus

v 4. No matter what may be the test,
God will take care of you;
Lean, weary one, upon His breast,
God will take care of you.

Chorus

 

As you walk through today and tomorrow, remember that God will take care of you. He loves you.

At Home.
