God meets my Needs
In HIS Presence


Read: Mathew 6:25-34

Meditation verse:

“Therefore, do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him” (Mathew 6:8).


My fingernails are soft and break easily. So, every now and then, I add acrylic stick-on nails to protect them. Recently, I was scheduled for a medical procedure. A few days to the procedure, the stick-on nail on my right thumb fell off. I recall feeling slightly irritated and saying to myself, “now my nails will look odd, with the stick-on missing in one finger”. Little did I know that my Father in heaven was going ahead of me. 

I arrived the hospital on the morning of my procedure and the nurse came over to take my vitals. Measuring my oxygen level, required me to insert my forefinger in a little device. It turned out that the machine could not get any reading because of the acrylic stick-on on my nails. The only way my oxygen level could be measured was through the thumb with the missing artificial nail. How on earth could I have known this? I probably would have had to forcefully pull out the artificial nail that morning to get the required reading.


God knows what you need ahead of time. Luke 6:26-30 says “Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?”


Irrespective of what is going on in your life right now, relax in the knowledge that your Father in heaven knows what you need and exactly when you need it. That little inconvenience is working out something good for you.

Have you asked Jesus Christ to come into your heart?

He says in Mathew 11:28, “come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” He longs to give you rest."

Would you like to do so now? Here’s a prayer you can say:
Dear Jesus, I believe that You died to save me from all my sins. Today, I invite you into my heart and I accept you as my Lord and Saviour. Please forgive all my sins and help me to live my life for You.

If you prayed this prayer, send me an email at rockteachingministry@gmail.com

I would love to pray with you personally and send you a copy of my book; ‘Living the Life’ to encourage you as you begin your new life in Christ.
