God is your source for everything that you may need and He cares about everything you care about. There’s no need too small for Him to provide and there is no need too big that He can’t provide for you. This is the reason, Holy books says – Praise be to the God, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort. It is He who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we in turn can comfort those around us who are in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Lord, so also our comfort abounds through the Lord. (Bible, 2 Corinthians 1:3)
The Lord is your Provider. He loves you and He has a good plan for your life. He wants to bless you so that you can fulfil His plan and purpose. Thus you can really enjoy your life. And in His Word, He tells you who He is and how you can access everything we need through Lord.
The problem is, sometimes you miss out on what God wants to do in your lives because you go to people, expecting them to give you what you need, instead of God. Now, God will work through the people He puts in your lives to help you, but you need to go to Him first and let Him determine the best way to meet your needs.
Bible, Philippians 4:19 says, “And my God will liberally supply (fill to the full) your every need according to His riches in glory in Lord.” This verse clearly tells that God wants to meet our “every need…in Lord.” Bible, Matthew 6:33 says, “But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides.”
When you feel the need for any help from anyone other than God, your focus is not in the right place. Your relationship with God needs to be your number one priority all the time, because everything you need is found in Him. When you seek God to know Him more and to learn the right way to live, then you can have confidence that He will take care of everything that concerns you and meet all of your needs.
I have found that when I spend more time seeking God’s face and not His hand – what He can give me and do for me – then my desires and thoughts line up more with His will. And when I spend more time praying for God to show me how to walk in love and treat people right, I am more likely to want what God has for me-
what’s best for me – because my mind and heart are set on the right things.
Bible, Hebrews 11:6 says, “Whoever would come near to God must (necessarily) believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him (out).” And Romans 8:17 says that if we are children of God, we are “heirs of God and joint heirs with Lord”. This means, being Lord’s children, God has provided everything we need in Himself. We just have to access it through a personal relationship with Him.
Obedience to God’s Word, giving and serving others are the ways you can release the blessings of God in your lives. And if you haven’t learned to be a radical, generous giver, you are missing out on one of the best things in your life. I know from experience that you’ll never be happier than when you’re helping someone else…when you’re doing something to help make someone else’s life better. And anytime you do anything for anyone, always look at it as if you’re giving to God.
The best attitude you can have with giving is: “Lord, I’m doing this for You because I love You. You gave to me, now I want to give my life to You!” When this is the motive of your heart, then you can stand on Philippians 4:19, knowing He will meet your every need.
Trust God to meet every need in your life today. He wants to be your healer, comforter, wisdom, peace, joy – anything and everything you need. He wants you to live in His grace, forgiveness, mercy and strength. Rest in Him with confidence that He is the Lord your Provider.
