ALL Our Needs
My God will fully satisfy every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:19 (New Revised Standard Version)
The tradition in which I was raised presented an image of a God who is sitting back, letting us fend for ourselves. Then, when we die or He comes, He will judge us.
I have since come to know Him and discovered that He is Personally interested in every aspect of my life.
Imagine: The Most High, the Holy One is pleased to call Himself my brother! (Hebrews 2:11)
Later, God taught me that He is my Provider; work is my assignment. I have found so much freedom in this.
Now, I find myself pondering the part of this verse that says, “all your needs…”
Really? All? That’s big!
That means, spiritual, mental, emotional, physical, relational, vocational, material, and whatever I left out, even needs I haven’t discovered or identified.
Philippians 4:29 also says He does this according to His riches, which are endless. Wow!
The God of the universe, who holds everything in His hand cares for little ol’ me and takes care of me out of his abundance.
Thank You, Papa God!
