He provides

The Father

Matthew 6:11  Give us this day our daily bread.

We all have needs.  Every one of us has something that we can’t live without, even if it’s only the basics of food and water.  But no matter what our needs may be, they are supplied by our Father in heaven.  All good gifts are from above. (James 1:17)

What’s more, God knows what we need before we do.  He’s aware of our everyday necessities and even our desires.  He provides not only what we need to survive, but to thrive and to carry out His purposes.  If He calls us to it, He’ll equip us to carry it out.  We’re never left without the required tools and skills to be used by God.  He’s always ready to give.

Though He knows what we need, in some cases God does want us to ask of Him what we seek.  It may be at times that He gives out of His grace and we never even knew to ask.  It may, however, be at times that He withholds something from us until we petition Him.  This is His prerogative, but it’s done to keep us aligned with His will.  If we ask what He wills, it will certainly be given.
