“And my God will meet all your need according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19
We live in a world of supply and demand, where necessary things are often scarce. We’re afraid we’ll run out, so we store and hoard and worry.
We carry this over to God’s resources as well. We worry that we won’t have enough to make it through another day. But God’s resources never run out. There’s never a power outage with God. He has more than enough. Paul writes, “and this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19 NLT).
How much does He supply? Just enough to meet our needs? No, more than that: according to His riches in Christ Jesus.
We must remember, however, the difference between our wants and our needs. Most people want to feel good and avoid discomfort or pain. But God wants a higher good for us. By trusting in Christ, our attitudes and appetites can change from our own wants to His wants. Then we have access to as much as we have faith to receive.
Thank you, Father, that You will meet all my need according to Your glorious riches in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19).
