PHILIPPIANS 4:19 And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.
I was thinking this week about the needs I have had over my lifetime.
Simply things like Food, shelter, clothing, the basics of life.
I also thought about times when I have been lonely, or sad, or when I was upset.
I have had times when I needed a friend, needed cheering up, or needed emotional support.
This passages makes me realize that no matter what needs I may have God can met all of your needs
Philippians 4: 19 covers everything we may need.
As I thought more about needs I came to realize that my needs today are not the same as yesterday.
At times God has been the great provider, he brings peace when needed,
For some he is a pathway to heaven, For all of us he is the Savior,
He is our strength, our healer, our friend, our sanctifier,
For others he is The Coming King or the great creator.
God can met all of our needs throughout our life time. All of the struggles and needs we have may be new to us but they are not new to God. We have the same needs as the people Jesus walked with in bible days.
One of the books in the Bible I really like is the book of Hebrews.
The reason I like that book is because for me it is comforting, its speaks a lot about a better life, and how God can make all things better.
I know God can met all of our needs, and I know he can do so in a better way then we could imagine.
11 times in Hebrews we find the word better used.
CHAPTER 6 There’s better things to come.
CHAPTER 7 A better hope.
AGAIN IN 7 A better covenant.
CHAPTER 8 Better promises.
CHAPTER 9 Jesus is a better sacrifice.
CHAPTER 10 There is better and lasting possessions.
CHAPTER 11, We read about a better country a better plan and a better word from God.
Folks there are better things to come from God.
God can met all our needs and he can met them better than we think.
But there is one more thing I want to mention this morning.
The book of Hebrews uses the word Better many times but it also uses the word Faith 23 times. In order for us to have our needs met and in order for us to live a better life, there is one thing that each of us must have, Faith.
God will provide for all of your needs and he will do so in a far better way than anyone can expect, he will do his part and our part is to just believe, we are to have faith in God and he will provide.
No matter what your need may be today..
