Walking By Faith
September 26, 2013
“And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” - Philippians 4:19
God wants us to learn how to face life with joy and confidence. Now, you may be thinking how is this possible when trials, troubles, and heartaches come our way. My friend, we must learn to be content in all circumstances in this life. Here is a great truth that I pray will ring in your ear the rest of this day: Look at this closely. The truth is this: God alone, and what God provides for me is all that I need.
Right now, in your mind, I want you to picture a circle. Let this circle represent God. When you became a child of God He placed you in Christ. Picture yourself in Christ. Name one thing that God needs. He needs nothing. You are in Him, and all that He has is yours.
Paul said in 1 Corinthians 1:30 – “But of Him you are in Christ Jesus….”
When this truth is not known, we have a wrong belief that we need something other than God and what God has provided for us. God alone, and what God provides is all that you need. Choose to walk in this truth with simple childlike faith, until you walk in this truth by faith without choosing. This, my friend, brings genuine joy and confidence.
