All Your Needs

Philippians 4:19 – “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”

As many of you know that I work part time as a Travel Agent. A while back someone who was referred to me gave me a call and said he wanted to take his wife on an Alaskan Cruise. He said he had heard the scenery was spectacular but that since he was on a fixed income he had a very strict budget and was concerned about how much the total vacation would cost him.  He mentioned to me that he might even bring a jar of peanut butter and a box of crackers with him in lieu of a few meals. At first I was not sure what he meant, but then I realized he did not know one important thing, that ALL of his meals would be included in the price that was paid for on his cruise.


It made me begin to think of how many Christians don’t understand that all of our needs were paid for The Cross.  You see, Jesus paid it ALL!  God has promised to meet every our every need according to HIS riches and glory, not ours. We will often try to live out of our own resources instead of His. As a Christian, our relationship with the Lord is one of complete unity. Jesus is our life and His Spirit lives in and through us, and because of His sacrifice, we can now stand on this promise in Phil 4:19, that He will supply all of our needs!
