Your Every Need

What are the needs in your life? No one has a care-free life. When you have needs, then you have a choice. You can worry about them with helpless feelings, or you can remember that you have a heavenly Father who cares about your every need. 

God cares about all of your needs, even what you eat. Jesus taught us to pray, "Give us this day our daily bread" (Matthew 6:11). Turn your needs into prayer. Trust your heavenly Father to help you with your every need.

Trust God for who He really is, a good and loving heavenly Father."For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him" (Matthew 6:8). Prayer does not inform your Father in heaven of your needs. Prayer receives God's help. That's when you turn your every need into prayer.

Refuse to doubt God. He is always trustworthy. By faith, thank Him that He cares about your needs. He wants you to trust Him. "Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding" (Proverbs 3:5). Trusting God enables you to turn your every need into prayer.

Doubt says, "I would like to believe that God will help me, but what if He doesn't?" Faith says, "God is my heavenly Father and He knows my every need. Why would He not help me?" Faith turns your every need into prayer.
