Supplying My Needs

on February 24, 2012

“But my God shall supply all Your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”  Philippians 4:19

At a first glance when reading this verse, I picture God supplying all of my physical needs.  The Bible is clear in saying that God will take care of our physical needs in Matthew 7:31 when Jesus says, “Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or Wherewithal shall we be clothed?”  God provides for the fowls of the air and lilies of the field, so He will certainly provide for us as well.

When I take a deeper look a Philippians 4:19, I notice that God says He will supply ALL our need.  Our needs in this life go well beyond the physical.  We have an emotional need to love and be loved.  We have a mental need to see ourselves as cherished by God.  We also have a spiritual need to build a relationship with God and be in fellowship with other Christians.

Being at a state of peace physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually is not an easy task.  We can never accomplish it on our own.  However, by trusting in and relying upon God, we will find that He truly supplies all our needs.

“And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound unto every good work.”  2 Corinthians 9:8
