And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
We know this Scripture, probably by heart. We have spoken this Scripture into our lives over and over again. Am I making some presumptions here? I don’t think so. God shall supply all of our needs. Through Jesus Christ, God’s riches cover every circumstance. Every circumstance whether physical or spiritual.
What an incredible promise to those who believe! Jesus is by our side, walking with us, resides in everything we face, and is in our tomorrows. So then what’s the problem? Why is it that so many times we don’t accept these truths? Jehovah Jireh, “The Lord who provides”. “Both riches and honor come from You, and You reign over all. In Your hand is power and might; in Your hand it is to make great and to give strength to all.” (1 Chronicles 29:12 NKJV)
Well, I think part of the answer as to why we don’t accept the promises of God is because we see our circumstances from our own eyes and our own strength and not from God’s point of view. That is a fatal flaw. God sees the bigger picture and possesses all the strength needed to deliver us, to sustain us, to lift us above our burden, to love us, to provide everything we need and to conquer what holds us down.
When we go to the Lord in prayer for whatever we need, how do we approach it? Do we ask God for help if He sees our need as important? Yikes! Or do we seek God because we believe that God is above all things and is our All in All. When the bible says to humbly seek the Lord, “Lord, You have heard the desire of the humble; You will prepare their heart; You will cause Your ear to hear” (Psalm 10:17 NKJV) it doesn’t mean we go to God without confidence and belief that God is able. Scripture says so much about this:
“Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” (Hebrews 4:16 NKJV)
“And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.” (2 Corinthians 9:8 NKJV)
“Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.” (Hebrews 7:25 NKJV)
“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us” (Ephesians 3:20 NKJV)
Friend, what is it that you need God to do? What is it you need God to accomplish? God is your Jehovah Jireh, the Lord who provides. I know some things to be the truth. God and His Holy Word is the truth. The power of the Holy Spirit to guide and direct us and to lead us into all understanding is the truth. And that Jesus Christ loves you with an everlasting love and died for you so that you could have eternal life is the truth. If you don’t have complete understanding of the truth, the power of God and the love of Jesus I talk about above than I might be able to help you with these questions. My family seems to be breaking apart, can you help me? No I can’t but I know a man who can. I’ve lost my job and I don’t know what to do. Can you help me? No, but I know a man who can. My kids seems so distant to me. Can you help me restore our relationship? No, but I know a man who can. I’m so sick. My doctor’s seem to think all is lost. Can you give me something to get well? No, but I know a man who can. I feel I don’t belong. I feel no one loves me. Can you change my circumstances? No, but I know a man who can. I call Him Jesus.
Dear Lord, thank You that You will supply all of our needs according to Your riches. Thank You that we can put our complete trust in Your glorious abundance. Thank You for Your everlasting love and provision. You are our Jehovah Jireh, the Lord who provides. Lord forgive our wicked ways. Lord we believe that You died for us and rose from the grave to defeat our sin and death and give us eternal life. Come into our lives Lord and be our Lord and Savior. May we rest in Your provision and care in Jesus Name. AMEN.
Don’t believe me, believe God!
