My Promises Stand

I told My disciples that every hair of their heads was counted and that not one sparrow falls to the ground without My Father knowing about it. I told them that they didn’t need to worry about their material needs, that if they trusted and followed Me, I would make sure their needs were met.1

This may sound unrealistic in today’s materialistic world, where the pursuit of money seems more important than ever. Times have changed, but My promises have not. They are just as sure today as they were 2,000 years ago. Seek first the kingdom of God and obey My Word to the best of your ability, and My Father will provide everything you need.2

When you love Me and are trying to follow My example of loving and caring for others, God will take care of you. That doesn’t mean that you can expect a life of luxury and ease. The tough times are also part of your heavenly Father’s plan to shape your character. And just as an earthly father doesn’t automatically give his children everything they want, My Father doesn’t necessarily give you everything you want. He gives you what you need and what He knows is best for you—not only best for your body, but more importantly for your immortal spirit.

—Jesus

These words from Jesus were received by men and women just like you who asked Jesus to speak to them. They claimed the biblical promise “Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known,” and they received advice, direction, and encouragement.[i]

The messages of guidance and comfort received during personal prayer express Jesus’ great love and personal concern. Jesus will speak to anyone who believes in Him, asks Him to speak, and accepts that the “still, small voice” they hear in their hearts is Him speaking.[ii] You too can hear directly from Jesus.
