The pagans run after all these things!
(James Smith, "Comfort for the Christian")
"Your heavenly Father knows that you have need of all these things!" Matthew 6:32
Our gracious heavenly Father bids us to cast all our cares upon Him—assuring us that He cares for us!
His EYE is ever upon us! His eye is a Father's eye, which is always quick, and always affects His heart. He has set His eyes upon us for good. His eye is ever over us—fixed immediately upon us!
His EAR catches . . .
our every sigh,
our every groan,
our every desire!
It is always open to our cry. He listens to us—as one most tenderly and deeply interested in us. He knows our every need—and He intends to supply us!
Our heavenly Father has forever determined—that none of His children shall lack any good thing—and that He will never withhold any good thing from them.
"So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you have need of all these things!" Matthew 6:31-32
