"And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19
Sometimes the needs in our lives seem to mount up high. Maybe you're waiting, or have been praying, for help, for a breakthrough. Maybe you feel like it's been slow in coming, or that you can't see a way out of your current situation. Maybe the needs seem to outweigh the reality. Maybe you've lost hope, feel alone in the struggle, and the weight of stress seems too hard to keep shouldering.
Whatever the need - physical, spiritual, financial, emotional, relational - God's truth reminds us that He's got “this thing,” no what it is that concerns you, He is able to provide what you need.
- God will meet (supply, provide for, accomplish, fulfill)
- all your needs (necessities, tasks)
- according to his glorious (bright, majestic, splendor)
- riches (wealth, abundance) in Christ Jesus
Our God who created the entire world and designed you and I with such purpose and intent can provide and will provide, out of His richness, fullness, wealth and treasure, for every single need we have. He gives favor. He lines up our pathways to be in the right place at the right time. He miraculously accomplishes so many things for us every day. Because He loves us, He will bend over backwards just to provide for us.
I pray that this devotion encourages you to trust in God and have assurance that He will PROVIDE!
I thank You that no situation is too far out of Your control to provide. For You are a God who provides, You own it all, and You hold everything in Your hands. I thank You, Lord, that You know my needs before I even ask, before I even come to You. You know what concerns me, and You have a plan. You hold the provision, You have the solution. I pray for Your answers, in Your timing, according to Your plan, to be given for every need that weighs my heart down. Forgive me for doubting You, Lord, for worrying, and for trying so hard to work everything out on my own. Help me Lord, to trust You more. Today Lord, I choose to recognize and to believe that You are able to accomplish far more, to do far greater, than I even thought possible. I thank You in advance for Your miracles, for paving out pathways, for Your provision for those who love You. Thank You, Lord, for the abundance of blessings and goodness You have already delivered. I trust You this day, and every day, and I'm so grateful for your Power and joy that fills my life. Thank You for teaching me how to be content in all circumstances, I love you Lord, and I'm leaning on you, In Jesus’ Name,
