He Will Supply All Our Need

Philippians 4 19

But My God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19

There once was a woman on the side of the road whose vehicle had run out of gas. She had no money and needed to get home to her children. This woman did not know Christ. A born-again couple stopped to check on her. They bought a couple gallons of gas and even returned to her with food and drink since stranded. The women cried uncontrollably because no one had stopped to help her for a few hours. It was a wonderful opportunity for the Christian couple to show some charity and talk with the woman about her need for Christ.

Often we may marvel at how those needs are supplied. I have seen so many people provided for when the least expected it. Meals have been brought to families in need without them asking for food. Some have received checks in the mail that they did not expect. Remarkably the check would be almost exactly the amount that was needed to pay an important bill. There are times when it may feel I like a need is not being met but the Lord already has something in place to meet our need. It is during these times that we must have faith knowing that God’s word is true.

It is that same Christian charity that moves many of us to help another believer. The Holy Spirit living within us may give us a strong feeling to help another Christians. We should follow His leading because we never know what sort of a blessing we could be to that person. There are so many ways that God could supply our need. If He provides for us in unexpected ways, openly praise the working of the Lord in our life. It can be of encouragement to others or a witness to the lost.

In these difficult financial times people have been facing the loss of a job, trouble paying their mortgages, high interest rates on debts, and troubled by uncertain times. As a born-again child of God we have no need to worry about how we needs will be met. God tells us in His word that He will supply all of our needs

My dear brother and sister in Christ, are we fretting over a need in our life that we are uncertain how it will be met? Let’s we go to the Lord in prayer and ask Him to provide for that need. Take comfort in knowing that He said will supply all our need. Amen.

  1. what a great and choice blessing of peace~ His promise! A favorite hymn of mine is..

    .

    My Shepherd will supply my need:
    Jehovah is His Name;
    in pastures fresh he makes me feed,
    beside the living stream.
    He brings my wandering spirit back
    when I forsake his ways,
    and leads me, for his mercy’s sake,
    in paths of truth and grace.

    When I walk through the shades of death
    his presence is my stay;
    one word of his supporting grace
    drives all my fears away.
    His hand, in sight of all my foes,
    doth still my table spread;
    my cup with blessings overflows,
    his oil anoints my head.

    The sure provisions of my God
    attend me all my days;
    O may thy house be my abode,
    and all my work be praise.
    There would I find a settled rest,
    while others go and come;
    no more a stranger, nor a guest,
    but like a child at home.
