All My Needs

April 16, 2010

In Philippians 4:19, Paul makes this amazing claim:

“And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.”

This weekend I am preaching to the high school group on serving the church, and I was reminded of this verse when one of the commentaries said, “When we serve, ‘God will pay the expenses, whether they be material, physical, or emotional.'”

Too often I have limited the scope of Philippians 4:19 to money. I think to myself, I can give financially because God will provide financially. Unfortunately, I do not make this same application to other areas. Time, energy, and rest are all other things that are required for ministry, but it is nonsensical to believe that God can provide the finances I need to give but not the energy and rest.

God can supply ALL my needs.
