What a Wonderful God We Serve

What a Wonderful God We Serve
 

Philippians 4:19-20 (ESV) ~ And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. To our God and Father be glory forever and ever. Amen.

 

  • God promised to supply all the need of His dear people This is one of the great promises of Scripture:
  • There is the great Provider: God Himself. No matter what the need is, the need is not greater than God. God can and will meet the need. But note the pronoun “my.” It is “my God” who shall provide for the needs. A person must make sure…
    • that the God who can really provide for needs is his God.
    • that he knows God personally—well enough that he can trust and depend upon God to meet his need.
  • There is the great assurance of provision: “my God shall supply.” There is no question about the provision being supplied. God is God; therefore, He can provide, and He will supply whatever provision His dear child needs.
  • There is the great provision: “all your needs.” This promise does not refer only to the physical needs for food, clothing, and shelter. It refers to mental, emotional, social, and spiritual needs. It refers to any need that arises, engulfs, or confronts the believer. No need will be omitted or overlooked. No need is too big or too little. No need is unimportant—not to God, not if His dear child is really experiencing the need. But no matter what the trial or need is, God will supply all our needs.
  • There is the great resource: “according to His riches in glory.” Take all the riches and wealth, glory and majesty of heaven—it is all available to meet the needs of God’s dear people. There is no limit—not even a fraction—to the great resources at God’s disposal. God can provide for any need.
  • There is the great Mediator: “By Christ Jesus.” This is critical to note, for God does nothing apart from Christ. No person can approach God without coming to Him through Christ Jesus. This is the key to having our needs met: surrendering our lives to Jesus Christ and asking God to meet our needs in Him. We must always remember that God has only one child: the Lord Jesus Christ. God loves Christ so much that He will do anything for the person who honors Christ by sacrificially giving to share the glorious news about Him.
  • And lastly, God is to be praised as God and as our Father.
