Matthew 6:8, “Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.”

There are times when we feel a little sad and disappointed because of our family or friends. It is the moment when they seem not to know how we feel. We have been working hard and they don't know about our hard work. They point out what we need to do more. We take care of our children all day, but nobody mentions it. We are sick, but no one seems to notice. When this happens, we feel sad.

In such a situation, if someone says, “You must be very tired,” or “You should get some rest,” it would be of great comfort to us. Just their knowing our hearts gives us comfort and strength.

God knows our hearts very well before we even say anything. And God even knows what we need. That is why we are comforted when we call on the name of the Lord. It is because God already knows our hearts and our needs. So, sometimes, just being before the Lord without any words can give us comfort and strength.

Do you need comfort and strength? God is waiting for you to give what you need. Come to God. Then, He will give you what you need.

I pray you may experience comfort and strength from our Heavenly Father who knows you all very well.
