“When you enter the land of Canaan that I am giving you as a possession, and I place a mildew contamination in a house in the land you possess,” – Leviticus 14:34 (CSB – emphasis mine)
Mildew is a part of nature. Like all aspects of the universe, it is squarely under the control of the Creator. It cannot exist apart from the one who upholds the universe by the power of his word. Jesus said that God cares for both the birds and the flowers and therefore we need not worry. If God takes care of them how much more will he take care of us! Worry consumes us and yet nothing – not the birds, the flowers, or even mildew – is outside the control of our sovereign God. How different our lives would be if we remembered this truth.
