Gather Your Strength from the Word

But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus Now unto God and our Father be glory forever and ever. Amen. – Philippians 4:19-20

These verses are so precious. The words “my God” make verse nineteen so very personal to each of us. Then notice with me the word “all.” We see here that God didn’t just say He would supply some of our needs. He said He would supply all of our needs. Our Heavenly Father cares about all of our needs.

What are you in need of today? Do you need relief from the stress and cares of this life? Do you need strength to labor for the Lord? Do you need strength to meet the many needs of your family? Then you need to read and meditate upon Matthew 11:28, 30 and Isaiah 40:29,31. (Please look these encouraging verses up.)

Our Saviour wants us to rest in Him and draw our strength from Him so that we can meet our responsibilities and not be burdened down by them. Perhaps you are in need of food and clothing. If so, please read Matthew 6:25-34. These verses will remind us that as we put His kingdom and righteousness first, He will provide these things for us.

Are you fearful, anxious, and in need of the assurance of the presence of God? Turn to Isaiah 43:5, and you’ll find these words: “Fear thou not for I am with thee.” Have you failed at something and are discouraged and maybe are lacking in confidence, then look at Philippians 1:6 and remember our confidence is in God and draw encouragement from this verse. Is, perhaps, your heart broken over someone or something and you need God’s comfort? Turn to John 14:18 and read the words: “I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.”

Maybe none of these things apply to you at this time, but whatever your need, tell it to Jesus, the One Who has all power and riches in His hands, May the Lord help us to confess and repent of our sins so that there will not be anything in our lives to hinder Him from supplying our needs the way He wants to.

Trust Him with every area of your life and watch Him work out all things for your good and His glory.
