We're not on a need to know basis with God

Worry. About anything and everything. A car, books, school expenses,bills just to name a few of my resent worries. Matthew 6:25-34 Discusses worry- are we not more important than the animals of the earth? How special are we to be created in the image of God!?!? Yet we still worry. God asks us to trust him and not really on our own understanding ( proverbs 3:5-6) God takes care of our needs in his timing not ours which requires us to trust- each time we trust we build our relationship with God. In my case trust meant packing up and leaving home believing in the peace that he would provide for school. Over the course of 3 weeks of extensive prayer and frustrations at God he provided a car, books and the semesters tuition...: yet I still fear and worry about the next step of trust-- I've found myself guilty of wanting to be on a need to know basis with God... Yet I do not need to know my future. I need only trust for the next step, strength just for today. Just as a humanly father cares for his child and provides needs so will our heavenly father do so for us....

Proverbs 3:5-6 " trust in the lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding"
