Exactly what you need
Matthew 6:8 – for your Father knows exactly what you need before you ask him.
I remember when I was younger I used to totally stress out about what would happen if I didn’t pray for something. What if I didn’t pray for my family that night – would they still be safe?! What if I didn’t pray to pass that exam – would I fail??
Obviously, and thankfully, I have grown in my understanding of the Lord since then. But I do think it’s a massive revelation to begin to grasp just how all-knowing and powerful our God really is. He knows exactly what we need. This also means that He knows exactly what we don’t need!
If you have been asking God for something in particular, but it still hasn’t come to be – trust that God has a purpose behind it not happening. Maybe He knows that you need something else, something better. Or perhaps it simply isn’t the right time. Trust that He isn’t holding back on something to leave you hanging, but rather because He knows better than you do.
What you have in your life, where you are in your life and who you have in your life is how God has purposed it be, because He knows exactly what you need.
