And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19.
Now let’s personalize this verse.
My God will meet all of _______ needs according to HIS riches in Christ Jesus.
Paul knew that the Joy of the Lord was HIS strength. He received his strength and sufficiency from the Lord. Paul learned to trust the Lord and not his circumstance. He was put to the test after being ship-wrecked, beaten, famished and imprisoned, yet he continued to be content in every circumstance rejoicing in the Lord.
Paul writes the following from a prison dungeon to those outside as words of encouragement:
4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:4-7
Paul was able to say that Godliness with contentment is great gain. Where do you get your satisfaction and contentment?
Do you believe God will meet all of your needs?
Can you rejoice in the Lord no matter the hurt which someone has caused you?
Can you rejoice in the Lord even if great wealth has been lost?
Can you rejoice in the Lord after losing your job?
Can you rejoice in the Lord in every circumstance?
Contentment is a learning process. Contentment is gained by resting in God’s promises and provision and rejoicing in the Lord.
Whatever my circumstance or problem, I know my God will meet all of MY needs according to HIS riches in Christ Jesus.
