God Will Meet Your Needs, Not Your ‘Greeds’
By Rick Warren

“My God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19 (NIV)

One of our biggest worries tends to be about our ability to provide for our needs.

But it shouldn’t be!

The Bible says, “My God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19 NIV).

What a joyful promise for those who are in Christ!

God doesn’t promise to meet all your “greeds.” He doesn’t promise a fancy car or mansion. God is not a genie in a bottle. But he will give you all you need.

Most of us don’t really understand this, so we don’t pray for it. One of my favorite verses in the Bible is Psalm 84:11: “The Lord will withhold no good thing from those who do what is right” (NLT). 

Make note of these three words: no good thing.

When my kids were growing up, I wanted to give them good things. I might withhold something bad from them—something that would harm them or something that would cause them to be stunted in their spiritual, physical, or emotional growth. But I wouldn’t withhold anything good from them.

If I, as a dad, want to give my children good things, how much more does a Heavenly Father who’s perfect want to do likewise?

God solved your biggest problem—your sin problem—when he came to Earth and died for you. If he was willing to do that, don’t you think he cares about the other issues you’re dealing with? 

Absolutely. He cares about your finances. He cares about your health. He cares about your career. He cares about you!
