Take a few minutes to read the Bible verses listed and ask the Holy Spirit to lead you in how this verse applies to you this week.

Matthew 6:25-34

Memory Verse

Philippians 4:6-7

Don’t worry about anything, but pray about everything. With thankful hearts offer up your prayers and requests to God. Then, because you belong to Christ Jesus, God will bless you with peace that no one can completely understand. And this peace will control the way you think and feel. (CEV)

Have you ever seen a bird go to the grocery store or watched a flower sewing a dress? That would be silly! Birds get their food from nature, and flowers are beautiful just the way they are. That’s just how God designed creation.

Jesus told us that like the birds and wildflowers, we don’t have to worry about what we eat or drink or wear, because God knows what we need and provides for us. So if God knows what we need, why do we have to ask him to supply our needs when we pray? Well, the Bible commands us to bring our requests to God with a thankful heart. By doing this, we tell God we know he is in control and he loves us. When we trust that he will provide for us in his way and in his timing, we will feel at peace about our needs, more than we can even understand!

Asking God to supply our needs is completely different than making a wish on a birthday candle or writing a letter to Santa. God is much bigger and much better than that! But because he is so big and so powerful and so loving, he doesn’t just give us what we want. He gives us what is best for us, because he knows what we really need.


Dear God, you are perfect in every way. Please forgive me for the times I have not trusted you. Thank you for having a plan for me. Help me to follow you. Amen.
