Friday Faith Project "Supply All Your Needs"

Philippians 4:19 says, "And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus."

This familiar portion of scripture is a verse that we can easily recite, we think of often, but many times forget the reality of.  We forget that God truly is the one who provides the job to pay our bills. We forget to put our trust in Him and His faithfulness to provide for His children.  We look for ways to make things happen on our own merit first and forget to seek Him for the provision.

He provides all the things that we will ever need.  If it's healing, He provides it. If it's finances, He provides it. If it's peace of mind, understanding, wisdom, insight, He provides it.  If it's faith, He provides. If it's love, friendship, or a relationship, He provides it. If it's compassion, He provides it. If it's restoration, He provides it. If it's creativity, ingenuity, talent, He provides it. If its identity that we are seeking, He provides that too.  And most importantly, He provides the gift of eternal life.

For two years hubs and I went through a season of lack and had to trust God for everything, and I mean Everything that we needed. Looking back on it, it was such a blessed time. We drew closer to our Heavenly Father and closer to each other. He provided provided funds through an online business that He gave the idea for. We were never sick, we never went hungry, He calmed every doubt and fear that arose and assured us that all would be well in spite of what the situation looked like.  And through this season He increased our faith and trust in Him. This scripture began a huge life lesson that we learned during those two years.  

With all the riches that He provides why do we fail to go to Him; to seek Him first in everything?  He is, and always has been, a God that wants to give to us more of what we need than we want it for ourselves.  My Hubs summed it as this, "He wants to be a first responder and not a last resort."  

This card is a reminder that He provides all that we need,    (~Kelli) ***
