EDITORS’ NOTE: Baptist Press will feature a photo each day this week from “The Wonder of It All,” a devotional coffee table book published by Broadman & Holman Publishers.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)–If you’ve fussed and fumed through life’s challenges, wondering if the Sovereign Creator was napping under a shade tree, I have a message for you: God is still on the throne and He is still watching over you. The God who hung the stars, poured the oceans, and raised the mountains is still here. Look at the flowers in this field. Your loving Father has dressed this hillside with beauty. He will do the same for you. Perhaps you’ve made Jesus the Savior of your life but have never allowed Him to be the Lord of your life through your darkest hours and most difficult days. You can do that today by asking His forgiveness and surrendering to Him: “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you” (1 Peter 5:7). He cares. He truly does.
