Promises of God

Luke 12:32 (KJV)

Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's
good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

Song Of The Day

Bible Commentary

Luke 12:32 is a Bible verse from the New Testament where Jesus assures us that God takes pleasure in giving us the things of the kingdomJesus said the following to his disciples after a discussion regarding material needs.

Luke 12:29-31

And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind.

30 For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.

31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.


We may have heard from a preacher’s pulpit that God gives us what we need, not necessarily what we want. But Jesus said in Luke 12:32 that God delights in giving us the kingdom.

The things of the kingdom are not just necessities. God formed a beautiful creation around us—the blue-green ocean waters, tropical forests and bright and beautiful creatures of many kinds. He gave man special gifts and talents to create, as well. After all, we are made in His image, and we are creative in some fashion because He is our Heavenly Father.

Luke12-32 it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom

The things of His kingdom are both tangible and intangible. The tangible things are of the highest quality, made with precision and care. The Lord delights in giving us kingdom gifts, which are the best quality. That is why we are to do all things as unto the Lord, as though we were working directly for Him. 

When we do our absolute best, we're doing kingdom work, and it is shared with the body of Christ. As a representative of the Lord, everything we do (including the attitude in which we do it) reflects upon Him and His Name.

The intangible things are the fruit of the Spirit—love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. These things sum up the righteousness of Christ, and they exude from us as we mature spiritually in our walk with Him.

Unlocking the Truth - Love the Lord

The God of Heaven and earth does not frown upon us having beautiful things of high quality. 1 Timothy 6:17 says, “Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;”

He wants us to enjoy the wonderful things of His kingdom, both tangible and intangible. However, He does warn us not to be highminded--arrogant and conceited. And remember what Jesus said right before He told us that God desires to give us the kingdom in Luke 12:32.


Luke 12:31
But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.

It is a daily effort to seek God first, as He commanded. The Lord delights in showering His faithful bride with the riches of His Kingdom, as she delights in Him. It really is a very simple relationship, and it can be so richly and lovingly rewarding, just as He designed and intended for it to be.


What is it you desire? A relationship, prosperity, success? He desires to give it to you. Why don’t you have it? Ask God what is standing in the way of you receiving it.

Then be still and listen for a response. And keep listening faithfully every day. Soon, you will delight in Him more than the thing you desire. He is an amazing God. Study the Bible verse of Luke 12:32 and reach out for Him, so He can shower you with the riches of the Kingdom today.
