Matthew 6:31-32—“Therefore do not be anxious, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, With what shall we be clothed? For all these things the Gentiles are anxiously seeking. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.”
Note 1 on heavenly Father says: “The kingdom people have the divine life of their heavenly Father as their strength to keep the new law of the kingdom. They also have their heavenly Father as the One who cares for their material needs, so that they do not need to be anxious about it. Their heavenly Father is the source of their strength and supply. Hence, they need not be weak or wanting.”
Cross-reference “a” on need directs us to this verse:
Matthew 6:8: “Therefore do not be like them, for your Father knows the things that you have need of before you ask Him.”
