What Do You Need? – Part 2
Written by Felicia McKnight
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.”
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!
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
