Your Father Knows

Your Father Knows

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.

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 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  with flying colors.     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!     My Lord, You really do provide  for all my needs  according to Your grace and wisdom  for our eternal good.”

Love,
