God wants you to have good things. If you are going to fulfil purpose, God know you will need provision and He is able to make available every sufficiency for every good work.
Appreciate that everything was created by God and He wants to give you good things. But He wants to remain your number one desire no matter what He gives you. If He gives you a house, a spouse, a good job, the wealth of the land - and your desire for Him remains the same, those things will glorify Him in your life.
The enemy will try to suggest to you, like he did to Eve on the garden, that god is keeping something good from her and that he was giving it to her but it is all a lie. God actually keeps some things for you and not from you because you cannot handle them. He knows that if you don't know how to handle a thing, it can become evil to you and evil through you.
You have to trust God. He may not give you what you want when you want it but when you need it, it’ll be there.
The first thing you should do in the morning is seek God’s glory, magnify it and bow down before the glory. This is because without the glory, you are nothing.
Realise that when you find and follow the glory, creation will favour you. Ingeniuity and creativity will come out of you. When you come into the glory, your passion for God is heightened. Glory fixes everything. It is the answer to everything!
You are not the one responsible for your upkeep and welfare - God is! If the birds are not responsible for their upkeep, why should you be bothered by it. God knows how to take care of His own.
When you follow the will of God, He gives you provision there and adds on to you. You will surely receive goodness, which is everything that is good; and mercy - which will qualify you for the things you disqualified yourself from.
