What we want and what we need are two different things BUT God knows what we need. Some days it seems that he doesn’t give a fig because we have these bills, these troubles and these pains. But hear this!
Therefore do not worry and be anxious, saying, What are we going to have to eat? Or, what are we going to have to drink? Or, what are we going to have to wear?
For the Gentiles (heathen) wish for and crave and diligently seek all these things, and your heavenly Father knows well that you need them all.
But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides. (Matthew 6:31-33, AMP),
My life is living proof of that. Oh I haven’t evaded financial distress, grief, cancer and so on but at every turn, God met my every need and he will do the same for you.
Prayer – Lord, I take you at your promise God and I prayer on behalf of Everyday Christians’ readers, that they too would take you at your word. Trust and believe. Amen
