A small child was sitting alone looking out the window of a train traveling to Northern England. A kind, elderly lady saw him quietly looking out the window. Thinking he might be lonely or afraid, she asked, “Are you traveling alone, sonny?”
“Yes, ma’am,” he replied.
“How far are you traveling?” she inquired.
“To the end of the line, ma’am,” he answered.
“Aren’t you afraid of taking such a long trip all by yourself?” she said in amazement.
“No, ma’am,” he said with confidence. “My father’s the engineer.”
The quiet confidence and unwavering assurance of being safe and protected can become the centerpiece of the life of every Christian. We often find ourselves in situations that are fearful and frightening, turbulent and threatening. While life around us may seem to be falling apart, our Heavenly Father is still “the Engineer.” He knows His own and He owns this planet and everything on it. We can always be confident and courageous because we have the assurance that He will constantly guard us.
The Living Bible puts it this way: Let Him have all your worries and cares, for He is always thinking about you and watching everything that concerns you.
Prayer: Help us, Father, to take You at Your Word and in faith, believe that everything in our lives is there because You are in control. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Scripture for Today: 1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
