Fear Not, Little Flock

And he said to his disciples, “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat, nor about your body, what you will put on. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing. Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds! And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? If then you are not able to do as small a thing as that, why are you anxious about the rest?

Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass, which is alive in the field today, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will he clothe you, O you of little faith! And do not seek what you are to eat and what you are to drink, nor be worried. For all the nations of the world seek after these things, and your Father knows that you need them. Instead, seek his kingdom, and these things will be added to you.

“Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” ~ Luke 12:22-32 (ESV)

Fear Not, Little Flock
An Original Work / February 10, 2016

Based off Luke 12

Fear not, little flock,
Your Lord’s always near.
Jesus will come and
Wipe every tear.
Trust in His mercy,
Rest in His love.
He’ll give you comfort
From heaven above.

Our precious Redeemer,
Jesus, our friend,
He will be with us,
True to the end.
He will not leave you,
Faithful He’ll be.
Believe His promises,
Rest on His knee.

Our God, and provider,
He knows our need.
He’ll not forsake you.
Follow His lead.
He’ll love and comfort you
To the end.
Know, on His Word,
You can always depend.

  1. Love this post, Sue. I was actually reading from Matthew 6 just recently.and in it; I learned that I shouldn’t be preoccupied with tomorrow or what is to come, but focus on today; because for one we are not even promised tomorrow.

    I liked when Jesus said to the disciples, “And do not seek what you are to eat and what you are to drink, nor be worried. For all the nations of the world seek after these things, and your Father knows that you need them. Instead, seek his kingdom, and these things will be added to you.”

    We can seek God first and ask instead of wondering what will happen. God already knows what we need we just need to ask Hi and then trust in His timing.

    • Amen! Absolutely!! Worrying never solves anything. It just makes matters worse. We have not much control at all over our circumstances or what someone else might do or say or over the weather or whatever. And, we should definitely stop with the “what ifs,” for we can drive ourselves crazy! Our only true hope, peace and joy is found in resting in the Lord, and in trusting his timing, too.

      Thanks so much for sharing with me these encouraging words, God’s Warrior.

    • Thank you, Lynn. Only by God’s grace. It all comes from him. And, yes, I agree that this subject is a running theme, not just in God’s communication with you, but in his communication with all of us, throughout the scriptures. We must continually be reminded to not be afraid and to trust God. I am so glad for those reminders, too. 🙂
