Day 16: He Provides our Every Need
And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19
What an amazing promise: he will meet all your needs. There is no exception or qualification to this promise from our heavenly Father–he doesn’t say “if you are doing the right thing, I will meet your needs,” or “if you are making me look good,”–he unequivocally promises to provide for us–our every need in our every circumstance. In this promise, we can find perfect peace, trusting our God that his Word is good. When we trust our heavenly Father to not only know our needs but to provide for them, we can rest even in the midst of the storm, like Jesus. Our almighty Father God owns the cattle on a thousand hills (Psalm 50:10). All of the riches in heaven and on earth belong to him. When we have the God of the universe on our side, what do we have to fear? Our loving, powerful Father will meet our every need.
Father God, thank you that we can fully trust you to provide for our every need. You are our faithful provider, and you never fail. Thank you that your promises are not contingent on our performance, but rather you provide for us whether we choose to trust you or not. Thank you that your provision is not based on our righteousness but yours! Your goodness and love cover us, and you faithfully provide the peace, strength, and provision we need each day.
