All Your Need

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

Some preachers today have hijacked the words prosper and prosperity. They say that God wants everyone to be wealthy and healthy, and so you are to just speak it out, and God will give it to you. That is their focus. And that is wrong.

There is a place for prosperity—biblical prosperity. It may be monetary. God may bless you with a lot of work or a lot of resources. But we want to be careful with the resources that God gives to us. The Bible says, “And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19). But let’s not misunderstand this verse. Behind every promise there is a premise. Verse 19 is embedded within the context of Philippians 4.

Are you in need because you were foolish with what God gave you? Then don’t be so quick to invoke this promise. The assumption, contextually, is that you are living the way Paul speaks of in Philippians 4.

Also, this verse applies to more than just money. If your marriage is in trouble, God will supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. If you are single and looking for that right person, God will supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus If you need a physical touch from God, He will supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. And yes, if you have a financial need, He can supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

But let’s be wise stewards with what He has given us now. And let’s remember that happiness and contentment does not come from stuff; it comes from a relationship with God.
