Text of the Day







 Your Father knoweth what things ye have need ofMatt. 6:8


 Our petitions, our requests, our cries to the Lord, therefore, should be for the holiness of heart, for the filling of His Spirit, for the spiritual food, refreshment, strength; and as for the natural things, He knows the way we take and what would be to our best interests as Christians. We are to leave this to Him; He would not be pleased to see us importuning Him for things which He did not give us, for to do so would not be an exemplification of faith in Him, but the reverse an exemplification of doubt, a manifestation of fear that He was forgetting or neglecting His promise to give us the things needful.
