Prayer Devotional: Day 60

Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. – Matthew 6:31‭-‬32 KJV

Sometimes we are so busy working that we forget to plan meals ahead with enough time to ensure we are eating healthy foods. The Lord knows we need nutrition, but He also knows that we do not need to be overly preoccupied with what we eat and what we wear.

Our bodies are our temples, and we can take caution to eat and dress properly, but it need not be such a concern as to take away our focus from Jesus. He offers us living bread and water. He offers us clothes that are white as snow in heaven. That is better than anything we can buy from the mall. Amen.

Prayer Journal: Day 186

Day 186

And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind. For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things. But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you. – Luke 12:29‭-‬31 KJV

The Lord knows what our basic needs are, but He also knows what we need to be happy, healthy, and safe. He knows what things we need and what we do not need.

He doesn’t force us to accept things that are not a good fit for us. He cares about every detail of our lives, and when we truly let go and trust Him, He blesses us with more than we can ask or think.

We do not have to settle because when we wait on the Lord, He helps us. He shows us where we should go and what we should do. 

When we take time for prayer and meditation, the time is never wasted. Amen.
