What you need 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…

Most often the supply that would meet my needs was over there.

“Over there” being things like…

Initiating a new relationship or walking away from a current relationship,

Starting something new and unfamiliar or stopping something comfortable and familiar.

Bottom line, I have learned that God’s promise to supply our needs usually involves movement and change from us.

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 our Shepherd leads us to still waters and we have to fill my own cup.


The ONE THING for today: God is waiting “over there” with the provisions, answers, and solutions to what you need. The question is, what are you going to do about it.
