MY GOD SHALL SUPPLY ALL YOU NEED

And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.  Philippians 4:19

Today, as in other uncertain times, we may wonder how we are going to make it.  For Christians, we have a God who cares about us and is able to meet all of our needs.

God has been given many names given to describe Him in the Old Testament.  One of them is Jehovah-Jireh - The Lord Who Provides
The name is literally, The Lord Who Sees, or The Lord Who Will See To It. This is what we long for when we have a need that is personal and special; One who will see to our needs and provide for us. This is what Jehovah-Jireh means; the Lord Who will see to it that my every need is met. One Who knows my need because He sees. One Who is able to meet my need in just the right time as He did for Abraham, and One Who can meet it fully. For Abraham, it was the ram caught in the thicket that was offered in Isaac's place. For us it is whatever we need.  The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous, And His ears are open to their cry. The face of the LORD is against those who do evil (Psalms 34:15-16).  
The righteous are those who love God and demonstrate that love in their actions toward Him and toward others.
In Genesis 22 we have the account of God telling Abraham to take his only son and offer him as a sacrifice and burnt offering.   
When Abrahams adult son asked him, where was the sacrifice, he said: My son, God (Jehovah-Jireh), will provide  himself a lamb for a burnt offering.(Genesis 22: 6-8).  God always shows up on time, not our time, but His time.

At the time Isaac was going to be offered up, God provided a ram.  And Abraham stretched out his hand and took the knife to slay his son. But the Angel of the LORD called to him from heaven and said, "Abraham, Abraham!" So he said, "Here I am." And He said, "Do not lay your hand on the lad, or do anything to him; for now I know that you fear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only son, from Me." (Genesis 22:10-12).

Abraham believe that even if he had offered Isaac, God was able to raise him from the dead.  By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, of whom it was said, "In Isaac your seed shall be called," concluding that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead(Hebrews 11:17-19). And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovah-Jireh  (Genesis 22:14)

God provided His Son as a sacrifice for you and me, and raised Him from the dead as he will you and me one day.  Christ has already made provision for your salvation: But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8).  

From these scriptures and others we can learn several things.  We can learn that Gods provision will come in the time of our greatest need.  Where will He provide?  He will provide for us in the mount, that is the place of our trial.  When you cannot see the answer to your need, the Lord will see you and see to your need.  He will be your Jehovah-Jireh.  The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous, And His ears are open to their cry. The face of the LORD is against those who do evil.  (Psalms 34:15-16).

When we have needs, God is Jehovah-Jireh for us.  He can and will provide. Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass (Psalms 37:4-5).

We can learn that the provision was made by God Himself. This is a provision that guarantees all other provisions you need. We do not have to interfere with the provision of God.  Do you think that after He gave His only Son, Jesus Christ, that you need to try to manipulate circumstances for God to work?  He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? (Romans 8:32).  Jehovah-Jireh is concerned about your needs: Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you (1 Peter 5:6-7).
It is not Gods will for you to walk around feeling like a victim.  It is time to quit blaming others for where you are in your life.  If there is a need in your life that has gone unmet, it is time to ask God to help you, and then get busy with the gifts and talents that God has given you to meet that need.  It may take some sacrifice on your part in time and energy for God to give you what you need.   Every one of us shall give an account of himself to God  Romans 14:12

 The supply is there for your need. My God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.  This does not say wants.  God will give you what you need.   You have to go to the right source and believe that He is able to help you.  This is called faith.

Without faith it is impossible to please Him, for He that comes to God must believe that He is (real), and that He rewards them that diligently seek Him. (Hebrews 11:6).

These needs include more than things.  God can meet your emotional and spiritual needs as well. Identify those things you really need. He can send people into our life to help you meet those needs.  The Holy Spirit is in you to help you, and teach you, how to handle the things that you lack in your life.

It is Gods desire to help you today.

Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in good health, even as your soul prospers  (3 John 2).
