GOD, OUR SUPPLIER



Philippians 4:19 "But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus."


Our verse of focus addresses the confidence that the Apostle Paul had in God. The use of the words "my God" is indicative that Paul had a deep personal relationship with God and that He was willing to publicly acknowledge the same.

Paul was a recipient of God's continuous blessings. His needs were met.

Paul stated that the abundance of God's riches is the source of the supply of our needs. In considering the vastness of God's resources, the Psalmist David wrote in Psalms 24:1 "The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein." He continued to state in Psalms  50:10, "For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills".



Our finite minds cannot begin to comprehend the capacity and the capability of our omnipotent (all-powerful) God to uniquely care for us. Sometimes we cherish the misguided notion that our earthly possessions are the direct result of our unaided abilities, efforts and hard work. Some have said, "I worked hard for this." Yes, we use our abilities; we do extend much effort and we work hard to achieve our successes. 


However, God grants the 'raw material'. The bottom line is that without God's breath, which He graciously bestows on us each moment, we would not be able to acquire anything. As we use God's 'raw material' - His strength, His resources, and generally, His gift of life, it is of paramount importance that we are aware that He is the giver of good gifts. What a giver! He gives and continues to give. He undeniably, undoubtedly supplies all of our needs. Let us praise God for being our faithful supplier.
