Don’t Worry–God Knows Your Needs

imagesSixth, do not worry because God knows your needs. “For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all” (Matt. 6:32).

One man was always worrying. He worried about his children, his job, his wife, his health. One day a friend of this man noted that he was extremely calm and peaceful.

“Why are you so calm?, he asked. “You always worry about every-thing. What happened?”

The former worrier replied, “I just hired a man to do the worrying for me.”

“Well, how much are you paying him?” His friend inquired.

“A thousand dollars a week,” the man replied.

“A thousand a week? You can’t afford a thousand dollars a week.”

The worrier responded, “That’s his problem!”[1]

If you worry, you are saying that God does not know. If you worry, you are saying that God does not care. But Jesus said your heavenly Father knows that you need it all.

Do not live as if God is not there. God is there! Do not live as if God does not know your needs. God knows your needs! Do not live as if God does not care about your needs. God cares about your needs!
