God Knows What We Want... And What We Need
God knows what we want, but more importantly he knows what we need.
Too often we doubt him in this. We pray for the things we want, and we think that we should get them. And when we don't we feel that God has failed us.
But God never promised us that life on earth was going to be easy. He never once said that it was supposed to be perfect.
Life on earth is hard. It's messy.
Sometimes we might feel like God is ignoring us and our pleas for things to go our way. But he isn't.
God loves us so much and he wants what's best for us. And he always knows what that is.
So, as hard as it is, we need to try to trust God to give us all that we need. We have to leave things up to him and ask him to help us through whatever we are facing.
God knows what we want and what we need. And when we have full faith in him to see us through whatever we are facing we will never get let down.
Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
