TOPIC- God’s Supply A daily devotion for March 31st

Read the Scripture: Philippians 4:19-23

And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. (Phil 4:19)

This is a promise for givers, not for non-givers. It’s what God does in return for the expression of your gift. Unfortunately, we often subtract it from its context and take it as a blank check we can cash any time we are in need. It has sometimes been taken to apply to everyone everywhere. It is not that.

Notice finally the method of supply. It’s according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. There are many kinds of riches. There are the riches of his goodness which are available to all people. He makes the sun shine and the rain to fall upon the just and the unjust. Then there are the riches of his grace which are available only to sinners who admit their need. God’s grace takes over and forgives and cleanses and gives us purity and all we need. Then there is the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. This is available for saints, to those who know him. All that he has in terms of the glory and fullness of his deity is available to any believer. The weakest saint holds in his hands all that the greatest saint ever had. He has Christ, and in having Christ he has everything!

Father, thank you for all you have given me and will give me. You have not only supplied my every need but you have given me untold riches in Christ. Help me to live as one so blessed that I can say with Paul, My God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.

Life Application: Pastor Ray Stedman

Do we give to others with both care and prayer? Are we giving in order to be rewarded? What should be the motivation that prompts joyful, spontaneous, even costly giving?
