“You can be sure that God will take care of everything you need, his generosity exceeding even yours in the glory that pours from Jesus.” Philippians 4:19 MSG

Continue to be encouraged as you wait on God to move in your life. The first part of this scripture in the message version reminds us that you can be “SURE” that God “WILL” take care of “EVERYTHING” you need. Everything is the sum total of “all”. God is so sovereign that He knows the what, when, where, and how our needs should be met. Our role is just to trust that God will honor His word. According to dictionary.com SURE means you can be “free from doubt, confident, convinced, assured, unfailing, or never have disappointing expectations.”

Philippians 4:19 says that the needs will come in the form of glory that is poured from Jesus. Be aware of your surroundings and don’t miss the needs Jesus has already given you. From His glory He is pouring into you the strength, peace, and grace you need to sustain you.

Isaiah 40:31 NKJV says…

But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint. .

Isaiah 26:3 NKJV says…

You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You.

2 Corinthians 12:9 NKJV says…

And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Your circumstances may remain the same, but you are being renewed daily (2 Corinthians 4:16). Your mercies are new every morning (Lamentations 3:22-23).   Goodness and God’s unfailing love are following you all the days of your life (Psalm 23:6).  All of these things are the glory of Jesus being poured upon your life daily in generous amounts.

As you stand in need of something the word of God is the hope you must hold on to. Whatever your something is God is going to take care of every aspect of meeting your need. He is meeting those needs right now. It may not come when you want or how you want it, but you can get rid of doubt today. You can stand assured, convinced, and confident that God is unfailing. God will do what He said He would do and His expectations never disappoint. God is able is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us. (Ephesians 3:20)

Be blessed and encouraged on today!

Prayer

Heavenly Father, as we wait on you to move in certain areas of our lives we thank you that you are already meeting our needs. Thank you for sustaining us with your strength, peace, and grace. Thank you for keeping our minds in perfect peace as we keep our minds stayed on you. Thank you that for renewing us daily. Thank you that your mercies are new every morning.

We thank you for your word and the promises you have given us for every aspect of our life. Even when we don’t know what the outcome will be our what it will look like we thank you that you are sovereign and that you know. We thank you that your ways are better than our ways. LORD, we thank you that today we can go throughout each day with assurance and confidence that you are a God who does not lie. We thank you that as we have laid our matters at the altar that the outcomes will be exceedingly, abundantly, above all we could ask you for or imaging according to the power that works in us. All glory and honor belong to you. In Jesus name. Amen

You can be sure that God will take care of everything you need, his generosity exceeding even yours in the glory that pours from Jesus. (‭Philippians‬ ‭4‬:‭19 MSG)

As I reflected on my last post, “What Do You Need?” I kept meditating on the last part of Philippians 4:19, “according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”  

“By Christ Jesus.”

“Jesus.”

The same Jesus that is seated in heavenly places in Ephesians 2:6, the same Jesus that is interceding for us in Romans 8:34, and the same Jesus we are co-heirs with and share in his glory in Romans 8:17 is a factor in our needs being met.  When we stand in need we tend to worry and analyze and figure out how the need will be met instead of trusting in our Heavenly Father. Have we forgotten that we serve a risen savior that through salvation has given us the victory over all things!?

This is my thesis for today. For those who are saved remember who saved you and who has given you the victory through the blood that was shed on the cross just for you.

What do you need today?

Do you need a peace of mind? Do you need a situation worked out in your life? Do you need finances? Do you need deliverance? Do you need some things to happen in your family? What do you need? Do you know the hope God has given you in his word about your need? Do you know that God is able?   The message version says “you can be SURE that God will take care of everything you need.” That word “sure” speaks for itself. It’s a promise. It means the matter has already been settled in Heaven.  Everything means all that you stand in need. It means that in faith God already knows and He will provide. He is Jehovah Jireh!

Today is a reminder to remember who Christ is. Remember He is seated in Heavenly places praying for you right now. He will meet your need according to his riches. The last I read in my Bible Christ isn’t lacking.  However He chooses to meet your needs He is generous, more generous than any of us could ever be.

My mind can’t fathom all of the glorious things God wants to do and release in our lives, but my faith is assured that it is something far beyond what we could imagine or hope for.

But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” (‭I Corinthians‬ ‭2‬:‭9‬ NKJV)

No need to loose anymore sleep. No need to wonder or try to figure things out. You are a child of the most high God. He is sovereign and he is able to do far more than you could imagine or hope.

Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. (‭Ephesians‬ ‭3‬:‭20-21‬ NKJV)

What do you need? Will you be sure in your faith today that God will take care of EVERYTHING you need?

Be blessed and encouraged!

PRAYER

Heavenly Father, thank you that you are sovereign. Thank you that you see all and you already know what we stand in need of before we even ask. Thank you that your way is the best way. Thank you that we can stand in faith and be sure that everything we stand in need of you will meet it. In Jesus name. Amen

And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. (‭Philippians‬ ‭4‬:‭19‬ NKJV)
What do you stand in need of? ________________________________

Whatever your response is to the question above God already promised in Philippians 4:19 that He will supply it. Many times we are so focused on our needs and how we believe the answer should look that we miss the blessing of when God actually meets the need. I remember for years I Prayed for my finances to be in order and for me to be in a place where I could pay all bills on time before the due date. For me the answer to that prayer should have been financial increase in the form of a pay raise. However God had a different outcome. I had a major decrease in a source of income that forced me to restructure my finances and diligently live off of a budget. Within a month or so I realized I loved living on this budget and was now in the position where I was paying bills on time. The key thing is I never got the pay increase but the prayers were answered through financial decrease. God’s way of doing things are not our ways yet He is always faithful to His word! 

As a reminder today there is no need to stress or worry about that thing you stand in need of. God is sovereign and he already has it worked out! I encourage you today to keep your eyes focused on God and not your circumstances. Stand on the promises of Philippians 4:19. When you feel like you are about to worry about your need start quoting this scrpiture and pray it over your life. You may not know how the need is going to look when it shows up, however you can stand in faith and assurance that God is able to meet every need that you have. He will do so in such a way that you can’t do anything but give Him all the glory for meeting your needs as only He can.

Be blessed and encouraged!

Prayer

Father God, we thank you that you are sovereign and that you see the things your children stand in need of. For some its finances, others healing, others a peace of mind, a mended family, or deliverance of some sort. Lord, whatever we put in our blank space above we stand on your word and your promise today that you will meet every one of our needs according to your riches and glory by Christ Jesus. Lord, we come to you asking you to do the supernatural in our lives. We ask that you meet every need in a way we know it was nobody but you who did it. We thank you for every miracle and breakthrough coming our way. We give you all the glory, the honor, and the praise. In Jesus Christ Holy name. Amen
