By itself, this verse can be a bit confusing. It isn’t clear what “thing” Luke is talking about. But if we look back at the verses which come right before this, Luke tells us. The “things” he references are our everyday needs: food, shelter, clothing. Here he reminds us that God will provide these things to us when we “seek first” the kingdom of God. So many times, we worry about where our money is coming from, how our bills will get paid, how we’ll get through to the end of the month. We skip church to take extra shifts and neglect our prayer life to worry about tomorrow. But the promise in this verse is clear, when we chase after God with all our hearts, He will make sure that our needs are met. He is faitfaithful to take care of His children.
And we pray:
Father, I thank You for providing for my needs. I am never lacking as long as I abide in You. You will meet all my needs and then some. I will never want as long as You are for me. Amen, glory be, Hallelujah!!!
