He Knows What You Need [Matthew 6]

7"And when you are praying, do not use meaningless repetition as the Gentiles do, for they suppose that they will be heard for their many words.  8"So do not be like them; for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.

31"Do not worry then, saying, 'What will we eat?' or 'What will we drink?' or 'What will we wear for clothing?'  32"For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33"But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. 34"So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.


Father we praise you that You know what we need before we even ask You. You know when we need food, drink and clothing.  You want to be the One who takes care of those things, freeing us from that worry.  Thank You that You are our protector.  You protected Sarai when she obeyed her husband and lied for him.  You know what we need and You are faithful to provide our needs. Thank You for freeing us from worry so we can seek You and Your righteousness.
