God Knows Our Needs

Reading for the Day : Matthew 6:8b (NIV)

Your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

Before time began, God knew you. The Creator of the universe, the God who holds power over death, could see through eternity and knew you, long before you ever knew yourself. It’s almost too much to think about, isn’t it?

And God knows what we need, and He promises to meet those needs, to take care of us. Yet so often, we make one of two mistakes. Either we think our needs are too small, or we think they are too big. Oftentimes, we think our petty little issues can’t compare to the hunger and violence and oppression in the world, so we don’t want to “bother God with it.” But we are wrong in this assumption. God wants to be bothered. He asks us to bring our needs to Him in prayer. Likewise, it is wrong of us to assume that a request is too big for God. One woman was told that it was foolish to pray about her terminal cancer. Yet she did, and she was healed.

God knows our innermost thoughts, our wants, our desires. He knows our hearts. And He wants us to direct all of these things toward Him. Matthew 6 tells us not to worry about what we will eat, drink, or wear. Jesus says, “Your Heavenly Father knows that you need these things. But seek first His kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”

God knows our needs and He is just waiting for us to honor and glorify Him by asking Him to meet these needs.

Prayer Suggestion:

Heavenly Father,

Thank you for meeting my needs. Thank you for the food that I eat, the roof over my head, the clothes on my body. Thank you for taking care of me. Help me to trust you and to bring all of my needs to You first. In Jesus Name, Amen.
