Day Five: He’ll Take Care of the Rest

Matthew 6:33-34 (NIV) – For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

Deuteronomy 6:10-12 (NIV)When the Lord your God brings you into the land he swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, to give you—a land with large, flourishing cities you did not build, houses filled with all kinds of good things you did not provide, wells you did not dig, and vineyards and olive groves you did not plant—then when you eat and are satisfied, be careful that you do not forget the Lord, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.

There is a song by Keith Green called, “He’ll Take Care of the Rest,” which talks about God taking care of us when we simply obey his calling. For all of his people, God will “take care of the rest” – our families, homes, possessions, and labors — as we seek his kingdom first. Jesus promises that all “these things will be given,” which indicates that, rather than being dependent on economic conditions or the market, our jobs are a gift from the Lord.

Prayer: Lord, we ask for your supernatural provision to cover our jobs, finances, and resources in this season. We thank you for the gifts of all of the good things in our lives as from your hand. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
