The Lord Is My Shepherd
“And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19, NKJV
Examine these words carefully. It does not say He will supply our wants. There are many things we want that God has not promised to give. It is our need, and all our need that He promises to meet.
Our children often want many things they do not get; but we supply all they need, if it is in our power to do it. We do not supply all their wants by any means.
And so, though God may withhold from us many things that we desire, He will supply all our need.
There can come upon us no trouble or trial in this life, but God has grace enough to carry us right through it, if we will only go to Him and ask for it. But we must ask for it day by day.
God not only has the desire to me your every need, He also has the power to meet your every need. Sometimes we demand things from God like we think He owes us the things we ask for.
God responds to us out of grace and wisdom. He uses grace to meet the genuine needs that we have and wisdom to know how and when to meet those needs.
Be encouraged today in knowing that God always knows best when it comes to the needs that we have in our life. He will always meet those needs at just the right time.
