Philippians 4:19 “And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”
In view of life’s difficult circumstances many of us must wonder from time to time whether or not God really cares for us or not. All of us have had perplexing situations that we have had to deal with. All of us have had needs which we have earnestly prayed over.
We ask God to meet our needs and the needs of others. We seek for God’s provision in our lives. And sometimes we ask ourselves why God isn’t responding to us the way we want Him to. He has the very hairs of our head numbered. He knows our frame; He remembers that we are just dust. We hear of His great concern for just a sparrow that falls to the ground.
By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac, and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son. Abraham had come to such a place in God that he trusted God to raise his son up from the dead again. He knew that God would provide somehow. It may not be the way we want Him to but He will provide.
Just like God provided what Abraham needed, God will provide what you need. He will provide the right thing. He is still Jehovah-Jireh, the Lord our provider. He will meet our deepest need for His greatest glory. The God who made us will take care of us, we will not lack for our needs to be met.
Sometimes we are not too clear about what our needs are, though we think we really need something when the fact of the matter is we just really ‘want’ something. The Bible says that God knows us better than we know ourselves. He knows our hearts, He knows our minds He is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart He knows the real you and you can be confident that He knows the right thing that you need. You need to trust the all-wise God that He will bring to your life that which you need.
What we need to see clearly is that God is working out His purpose in our lives. It is His plan for us that is important. He knows just what we need and just where we need it and just when we need it. He will never be late. I want you to know that God will provide for all your needs; He is the Jehovah Jireh the Lord our Provider.
