But God knows all your needs

Matthew 6:26-27, 30b-32 Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? . . . He will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith? Don’t worry . . . these things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs.

Yesterday was a potentially historic and pivotal day for Venezuela, as across the country people poured into the streets in protest of the existing government and a 35-year-old declared himself interim president, with support of the abolished national congress, the U.S., and many other countries and organizations.

We don’t know yet what will happen next. I tend to get very anxious and worried about Venezuela and the well-being of our friends there. Why do you have so little faith? Your heavenly Father already knows all their needs.

I have completed my scheduled “book parties,” and my next goal in regard to the Karis book is to find a way to publish it in Portuguese and Spanish for our friends who speak those languages. I tend to worry about whether I’ll be able to find a publisher interested in translating and distributing Karis. Will I have enough money from sales in English if I have to pay for translating and publishing it myself? Again, I hear Why do you have so little faith? Your heavenly Father already knows all your needs.

When I let these and other worries dominate my thoughts, I am behaving as an unbeliever. But my heavenly Father already knows all your needs, both my own and the needs of each person I am concerned about. He will certainly care for you.

  1. Praying for your needs and the needs of your friends in Venezuela, Debbie!

    One of the key, repeated phrases God has spoken to me these past few years is, “There is enough.” Whether I can see it or not, whether I can understand it or not… It has comforted me when I am overwhelmed by my own limitations compared to the great needs of those I love.

    Thanks for this blog – it is a blessing to me 🙂 Thank you for being part of the “enough” in my life!

    Love, Vera

  2. Muito Obrigado Miss. Débora! Estaremos orando e esperando a tradução desde este livro com alegria, Será benção para muitos, e será uma oportunidade de glorificará mais e mais a Deus! Obrigado por esta reflexão! Eu e minha família estamos um tempo de transição, e como todos seres humanos, Eu também as vezes me preocupo, com Ns coisas! (O salmista disse “recorda que somos pó”). Obrigado por mim recordar nesta reflexão sobre o cuidado de Deus para conosco! Realmente temos um Deus que Vela por cumprir Sua Palavra! Como disse no Salmo 37: 25” Já fui jovem e agora sou velho, mas nunca vi o justo desamparado, nem seus filhos mendigando o pão. Outro dia também eu estava bem preocupada com as finanças, e o meu devocional foi em Mateus e tratava das multiplicações dos pães e peixes.” Deus me mostrou que o maior milagre, não se estava na multiplicação dos pães e dos peixes, que saciou uma grade multidão, mais nas cestas que sobraram repleta, que revela um Deus de caráter generoso! Ele não só supriu as necessidades, da aquela multidão, mais proveu muito mais do que necessitavam!
