Thoughts on Life

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

In the first book of the Bible, God revealed Himself to Abraham as “Jehovah-Jireh” meaning the Lord sees and provides (Genesis 22:14). God knew what Abraham was going to need and provided for him in advance. Even though Abraham didn’t understand just how God was going to do it, by faith Abraham knew that God would provide. So Abraham believed God and by faith stepped out in obedience.

God sees your need beforehand and has made provision in advance for you, too. You and I can do no better than to surrender our lives to Him, honor Him with everything we have, and by faith step out in obedience. He is still Jehovah-Jireh! “So do not worry, saying, `What shall we eat?’ or `What shall we drink?’ or `What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” – Matthew 6:31-33
