And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19 NKJV
Paul praises the Philippians for their generosity.
My wife and I like so many others are in a season of financial need. We are so encouraged by this verse. Jesus encourages His people when encouragement is needed the most!
In verse twelve Paul says, “I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.”
Paul was not always in a state of financial need. He suffered times of financial need and at other times was blessed with more than he needed. My wife and I can say the same. I am sure many of you can as well!
If you are in a state of financial need today you are not alone. These are difficult times. Your current financial status will change!
Did God give us this verse of scripture only to encourage us during times of financial need? No He did not. God is speaking about so much more than just finances. The Lord will meet all our needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus!
The Philippians were not just generous in giving to God to meet Paul’s financial needs. They gave of themselves generously to the Lord. God met their needs because they willingly gave their hearts to Jesus!
God did not need the Philippians to provide for Paul’s needs. God owns the heavens and the earth and all they contain. God used the Philippians generosity to meet Paul’s needs to bring His people together in a spirit of brotherly love and unity!
Jesus cares about all our needs. Jesus will meet all our needs if we trust Him with them!
God knows all things. He knows we have even greater needs than money. We have needs only God knows. We have needs only God can supply. Jesus knows us better than we know ourselves. He knows our needs better than we do!
Jesus knows your every need even before you make your request known to Him. Jesus wants you to come before Him in prayer as an act of faith! What do you need today?
Do you need peace? Call out to Jesus. He will give you peace that calms the stormy seas in our hearts. Do you need wisdom? Jesus will give you wisdom that surpasses the information age. Do you lack financial resources? Give yourself to Jesus, be generous to others and the Lord will supply all your needs!
Jesus is waiting for you to turn to Him in prayer today!
