Dear Friends,
During a conversation with a friend this week, I was reminded of one of the biggest promises that God gave us: Philippians 4:19 (KJV), But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. The problem was, I could only remember the verse and not where it was in the Bible. I was sad to think that I was forgetting where to find this important verse in the Bible so I purposed myself to find it.

This situation made me reflect that I must not be thinking or sharing about God’s Word often enough. If I were, I would have these important promises in my heart and my mind ready to be shared with others. Today, I want to encourage you to read your Bible and choose your favorite verses. I downloaded an app to my iPhone that allows me to bookmark my favorite verses.

The devotional I chose today from my book, Devotions for Working Women, reminds us of this important promise so we keep it close to our hearts. Enjoy!

God Shall Supply All Your Needs
# 114

Philippians 4:19 (NLT)
And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.

In this verse, Paul thanks the Philippians for helping him during his time of need. He assures them that the same God who takes care of him will also take care of them. God knows our needs, but He wants us to ask Him to meet those needs. When we ask Him, we allow Him to meet every one of our needs according to His riches in glory (abundant supply) given to us and made available to us because of what Jesus did for us.

We have many needs in our lives and on a daily basis. But we usually only ask Him for the big things such as finances, a house, a car, or a job. We forget the other things like rest, peace, joy, or wisdom, among others. What we consider smaller things, or not as important, are indeed needed for our success in life.

If you are tired, ask God to give you rest. If you are worried, ask Him for peace. If you are sad, ask Him for joy. If you don’t know what to do on a certain situation, ask Him for wisdom. God is rich in every way, and He is waiting for you to ask Him so He can give you what you need. Ask Him in faith believing in your heart that He will come through for you. Because He will.
