Inexhaustible supply line!
Verse for Today: Tuesday, January 21, 2014
Philippians 4:19 – And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
Human needs are so vast and varied that it is well nigh impossible for the world to satisfy it all. There are millions in this world whose basic needs like food, clothing and shelter are not met. Man also has needs in the emotional, social and spiritual realms of life which also remain largely unmet and unattended to. Scientific inventions and knowledge explosion have only enhanced the vastness of the needs, but have not even suggested ways to meet it. But God comes to the scene to tell man that if he is willing to submit his life to God, He will see to it that every need will be met according to His riches in glory through Jesus Christ. There is absolute assurance that our spiritual and emotional needs will be fully met by God. Social needs are met more qualitatively when more and more people accept God’s answer to social problems and inequalities. Physical needs will also be met when people are willing to share what they have with the have-nots. But what God gives to His children each day is the contentment in their hearts with what they have. When we trust God to meet our needs and start minding His business, He will in turn fill our hearts with faith to believe that we will enjoy a fulfilled life. When Abraham was called out of his own country to an unknown and unseen place, he had such assurance from God that he will be looked after by God. Apostle Paul tasted His providence and so he could boldly tell others what his God would do for them if they trust Him. God meets the needs of all His children at all times according to the measure of His riches which no human beings can estimate or match. Our God owns the cattle of a thousand hills and all the gold in the gold mines of this universe. He is the creator and owner of the trillions of galaxies in this universe. His Heavenly riches are even greater. All these riches are made available to His children through Jesus Christ. None else can excel God in giving.
Dear friend, are you a needy person knocking at the doors of this world for your sustenance? Do you have unmet physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs? Do you ever doubt that your vast needs can’t be met by anyone adequately? Remember, your God is so big and His resources are so vast that any of your needs will be met by Him without any difficulty. But you must bear in mind the truth that He has not promised wants or luxuries to you. He is concerned about needs and will not deprive you of your basic needs. He has promised to meet your daily needs as you trust Him for all your tomorrows. He will meet your emotional needs through the outpouring of His love in your heart through His Spirit. Your social needs will be met as you keep company with God’s children. Your spiritual needs will be met through God’s Word and His Spirit through the infilling. But we must live by faith in His capacity to give from His sufficiency to meet all your needs. We do not need to look to the hills and fields of the world to feed us, but to the Father in Heaven who has enough to give to us. His supply lines will leave no room for us to doubt or become anxious about our future. We are fortunate people to have such a benevolent Father who is so rich and has so much concern for us and our affairs? He will never leave us as orphans and wayward children.
Psalms 23:1 – The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.
