And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
Our Scripture for today is so important. Because there are so many believers who are missing out being a blessing because they’re so absorbed with trying to meet their own needs!
For example, how many people do you know who, instead of trusting God to meet their needs, go out and buy what they think they need… only to go into debt doing it?! Then, saddled with that debt, they can’t be a blessing to others!
Can you relate? Are you missing out on being a blessing?
Well, you can change that! Begin trusting God, wait on Him, and just see if He will show you how He’s going to supply what you need!
You’ll never experience the power of God to meet your needs if you don’t trust Him for what He can do. God’s strength, grace, and power are available to you. Like Paul says in Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through him who strengthens me.”
God knows what you need even before you ask for it. When you pray, asking for God’s provision, you put yourself in the position to receive from God all that He wants to give you. When you pray expectantly, you can pray confidently that you will receive from God what He desires to give you!
Today I want to challenge you to elevate your expectations of God. Believe Him for great things in your life. When you do, you will begin to see how your life can indeed become a blessing to others.
BEGIN TODAY AND EVERY DAY IN WORSHIP AND ASK FOR GOD’S PROVISION IN YOUR LIFE.
