“And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19).
Dr. DGS Dhinakaran
A very powerful attribute of our Father God is to meet all our needs for He is Jehovah Jireh, our Provider. Yes! We have a God who is both powerful enough and wise in His ways to meet all our needs (Romans 10:12). Many times in life we come to a point where we may wonder, “How this huge need is going to be met. I see no way this could be met. Situations have gone beyond my ability and intelligence.” It is in this point our Lord will prove His ability and wisdom. When you think, “There is no way”, He will have a thousand ways to meet your needs miraculously. God is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us (Ephesians 3:20). So don’t look for a solution according to your small mind and fret when you don’t find a way. God has bigger ways through which He will meet your needs. Once, my wife and I went to a shop to buy some things. My wife thought that I had money with me. I thought that my wife had money with her. When we had bought all the things, my wife said we have bought all the things please pay the bill. I was terrified when my wife said those words. As usual there were only 5 or 10 rupees left with me. AT that time fortunately my son had come there and he gave the money for the bill. The Lord has sent our son there right on time so that we returned home peacefully; not being put to shame. Yes, many times in our life we come to this point of need but out gracious Lord says, “My child I would like to give you abundantly from my riches.” Even the streets in Heaven are made of gold. The Lord’s perfect will and His desire for us His children is that we live in this world not lacking any of our needs. That is why Paul writes, “And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19). The Psalmist also says, “The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.” (Psalm 23:1). This is the truth my friend. God is powerful and loving to care for all that you need in life. You need not worry about anything. Boldly say, “The Lord will perfect that which concerns me” (Psalm 138:8). But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added unto you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow (Matthew 6:33,34). Just keep looking to God for all that you need and God will do more than you desire.
Prayer: Loving Father! You are my Provider. Lord, You alone can meet all my needs richly. I believe in Your omnipotence to supply all that I need miraculously. Lord do wonders for me. What looks impossible in my eyes is possible with You so turn my impossible situation around and make way for me in the wilderness and streams in the desert. Let me praise Your name always. In Jesus name I ask this prayer, AMEN.
