“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
We can trust that God will always meet our needs. Whatever we need on earth he will always supply, even if it is the courage to face death as Paul did. Whatever we need in heaven he will supply. We must remember, however, the difference between our wants and our needs. Most people want to feel good and avoid discomfort or pain. We may not get all that we want. By trusting in Christ, our attitudes and appetites can change from wanting everything to accepting his provision and power to live for him. (Tyndal Study Bible)
Wants and needs? Yes, there is a big difference. Just yesterday we saw how easy it is for us to forget and disobey.
I must just add here. You can only disobey if you know about it. As a believer, you are not expected to know the whole Bible instantly. It will be revealed to you in time. That is why it’s important to study the Bible.
Let me tell you what my test is? God is watching and what am I doing with my blessings. He is testing my obedience on a daily basis. Not only with finances, with other things as well. One thing comes to mind, Prayer. How often do you neglect that? I have been guilty in the past. It’s obedience in everything that counts.
Take note what Paul is telling the Philippians. The God that took care of him will take care of them. The riches of heaven are promised us through the blood of Jesus, will be awarded us. Again I will say God will provide or needs. All we need is faith. Please remember that you can’t just sit and wait for those rewards, you have to seek them.
Lord, I thank you for my blessing. All the Glory to You. Amen.”
