He Knows and He Will

for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.   Matthew 6:8b

pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.  Matthew 6:6b

33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself.  Matthew 6:33-34b

The Lord is so amazing.  He knows what we need before we even ask Him.  He know our needs and will provide for them.  We have all had "rough" times in our life where we wondered how we would get through them, but when we think back to that period of struggle in the past - we almost wonder how it all came together.  There have been financial crises, mission trips, school expenses, fights with friends, arguments, disagreements, different opinions, hurt from someone, illness, death, hospital expenses, depression, anger, drama {sometimes from your mama (you know I had to say that little} - but think back - He saw you through it.  The money came in for that expense or bill, you had food on your table, you got through that terrible tragedy and have been healed and strengthened from it,  you came through it - because He knew the need and He met it.   

Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.
10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.
11 To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.  I Peter 5:5-11

He cares for you and will give you grace, make you perfect,  stablish, stronger and settled. 
All Glory to God for ever and ever!
