"But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:19
Not only is there a wonderful promise of provision in this verse, but there is also a revelation of God's power, grace and goodness.
He promises to supply all our need. Whatever we need, He will supply it-- spirit, soul or body. What more could we ask for? But there is more. He didn't stop with only letting us know He will supply it. He let us know to what degree He would supply it.
He supplies our need, not just according to the size of our need, but according to the size of the riches that He possesses. He doesn't just give us a handful, or one kernel, or one drop of what we need, but He gives it good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over. The problem is that we expect Him to supply just enough or barely enough to get by with. We are talking about a limitless God-- He owns it all; He has it all; if He doesn't He will create more. We have to expect Him to meet the need and meet it according to His ability and resources.
Let me show you what this looks like. Remember the man at the gate beautiful? He was a cripple and could not walk. He sat at the gate begging for alms. When Peter and John came by, he asked for his need to be met-- some money. He expected to receive something-- money. But what he got was his need met according to God's riches in glory. He received healing, instead of money. What he had was a need, but what he got was his need supplied according to the size of God's riches and resource-- not money but healing, which was much better, so he could go make his own money and not have to beg any more.
Do you have a need, child of God? He promised to meet that need. But you have to be like that man at the gate-- ask God to supply your need and expect to receive it. But watch Him meet it in a greater way than you can imagine.
Have a great day. God meets our need, but not according to the size of what we have need of, but according to what He has in His vast storehouse to meet it with.
