. . . for your heavenly Father knows that you have need of all these things. Matthew 6:32
St. Augustine once said that we were created with a “God-shaped” void.
I agree. Only God can meet the deepest longings of our hearts. There is nothing that can satisfy apart from your relationship with Him.
But it's not because He is a heavy-handed dictator forcing you to accept life the way He dishes it out! Who knows what will satisfy your deepest needs better than the One who made you? As your Creator, He can see what your needs are going to be tomorrow and ten years from tomorrow. Don’t you think He knows what you need today?
What do you need today? Notice I’m not asking, "What do you want?” but "What do you need?" Does your Father know what that is? Then trust that He will provide.
