Getting Our Needs Met

For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Matthew 6:32-33

I feel like I have a long list of needs. I keep bringing them up with God. I have even felt desperate that I have them met. But God is not a God of desperation. He gives us the ticket to getting our needs met. We stop seeking them. We stop making them important. We make the things of God most important. We seek Him. We seek His ways and bringing about His kingdom. We seek His life being made whole in us. And the rest just falls into place. It doesn’t need us. The NIV says, “For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.” Don’t run after the things of the world. Run toward Him who can give you more than you could even think to ask for.
