Your Father Knows  That You Need  These Things

Presidents,  political leaders,  kings,  prime ministers,  company executives,  etc.  most likely know very well  what the people  under them  desire and need.     That does not mean  they care  or want  to fulfill  those needs.     The motives  for their actions  might more likely be based  on their own desire  for power  and riches.

With all  of our earthly desires,  we can become overwhelmed.     We can easily get  to worrying,  feeling let down,  or bitterly thinking  we deserve better things  in life.     With all  of our fretting,  we forget  that this earth  and everything  in it  is not our real home.     When Jesus taught  about our needs  in this life,  He said  in Luke 12:28-31,

But  if God  so arrays  the grass  in the field,  which is alive today  and tomorrow  is thrown  into the furnace,  how much more  will He clothe you,  O men  of little faith.

And do not seek  what you shall eat,  and what you shall drink,  and do not keep worrying.     For all these things  the nations  of the world eagerly seek;  but your Father knows  that you need these things.

But  seek  for His kingdom,  and these things  shall be added  to you.

Our physical needs  are often given  greater attention  than our spiritual needs.     We seem  oblivious  to our much greater need  to learn  to trust God Almighty,  our heavenly Father.     If we don’t come  to have an honest  faith,  hope  and love  in this world,  we have lost everything.     So,  that needs  to be  our number one priority.

For whatever challenges  we have  to face  in this world,  let us learn  to put our faith  and trust  in our heavenly Father.     He will provide  for our needs  in a way  that will help us  to grow spiritually  and He will give us  the strength  we need  to get through every situation  to His glory.     Jesus says  in Luke 18:27,

The things impossible  with men  are possible  with God.

Let us always trust  our Lord  to carry us through  every storm  of life.     All He asks  is that we entrust  our whole lives  to Him.     In faith,  we then say,  “Hallelujah!     Lord,  You really do provide  for all our needs  according to  Your grace  and wisdom  for our eternal good.”

Love,
Margaret
