The Source of Your Provision

And my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:19)
Notice that this verse does not say that God will supply your needs according to:

  • your job
  • your talents
  • your education
  • your church, committee, choir memberships
  • your neighborhood
  • your stocks, bonds and annuities
His provision is not even according to your need. Yes, it is more than enough to meet every one of your needs, but it is not according to them. The provision is according to His riches in glory. This provision is now accessible to us because of the reconciling work of the Lord Jesus Christ.

What a glorious freedom comes when you realize that your provision does not come from you but from Him. He is your source and supply. He is able to make all grace abound to you so that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have abundance for every good work (2 Corinthians 9:8).
