My God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. (WEB)
The Apostle Paul wrote today's verse in response to the Philippian church's generosity in helping spread the gospel. While this promise is applicable to every spiritual need as well, Paul is referring to their practical needs. I especially love how he personalizes the promise by saying... "My God will supply".
I truly believe that he could say, My God, because it was part of his own personal testimony. Whether he had little or much, Paul learned the secret of being content in all situations (Philippians 4:12). He learned through the ups and downs of life, just how faithful his God was. And because He personally experienced the Lord's faithfulness in meeting his needs, he had the confidence to make the same declaration to the Philippians church.
My prayer today is that all of us would have the same testimony as Paul. May we all be able to declare to others... "My God will supply every need of yours" because we have known from personal experience that He has supplied every need of ours. ...Not necessarily all of our wants, but our needs.
May we all know that our Father is a good Father who provides for His kids, one day at a time. May we live a life of generosity, knowing that our God promises to meet all our needs according to His riches in glory in our Elder Brother Jesus. I pray that the Holy Spirit will show each one of us the vast storehouse in heaven that is set aside to not only meet our needs, but the needs of those around us as well.
“Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over, will be given to you. For with the same measure you measure it will be measured back to you.” (WEB)
