Luke 12:29

And do not seek what you are to eat and what you are to drink, nor be worried.

Devotional Thoughts

By David Wilkerson

For many months, I searched and studied the Scriptures, pleading with the Lord to give me a message of hope and encouragement for these hard times. My spirit cried out, “Lord, please speak a word to my heart for Your children, for You alone have the words of eternal life. Only You can speak a word of comfort to us in such times.”

The Holy Spirit answered my prayer, speaking the following to my heart:

“I am going to give you a single promise from my Word. And if you will commit your very life to it, this word will keep you through any and all perilous times.”

Beloved, I know if we will especially embrace this one verse, fully believing it, it will be a daily power-source of faith. Here is the promise the Spirit showed me:

“Your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him” (Matthew 6:8).

In Luke 12, Jesus enumerates the things He says our heavenly Father knows we need. In short, those needs are: food, drink and clothing.

“Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; nor about the body, what you will put on. . . . If then God so clothes the grass, which today is in the field and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will He clothe you, O you of little faith?” (Luke 12:22, 28).
