The supply is over there

My God shall supply all my need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

(Philippians 4:19)


I can truly say, beyond my wildest imagination, that God has faithfully supplied all my needs.  I am amazed and grateful! 

But in looking back over the years I have learned something…

Often the supply that would meet my needs was over there.

Getting my needs supplied has often meant that I had to walk away from what was familiar and comfortable and step into the unknown and different (and difficult!).

Bottom line, I have learned that God’s promise to supply my needs usually involves me taking action.

Passivity is seldom a virtue in God’s universe. He rewards and honors faith and works. Sitting in our easy chair and waiting on God to fill our cup is usually a recipe for disappointment. Most often I have found that my Shepherd leads me to still waters and I have to fill my own cup.

The ONE THING for today: The supply for your needs is available but it will probably require you taking a step toward the supply. What action do you need to take today to step towards God’s promise in your life?
