Overcoming Worries

Devotional

God reveals Himself in YOUR need…

The Bible says, “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7, NLT)

What do you need?

Just as we recognize the faithfulness of a friend when we are in need, God often reveals Himself in our need, whatever it may be. He is a faithful, tender-hearted friend!

Here’s how God says He provides for your needs: completely, according to His own riches, and in glory by Christ Jesus.

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

Not one of your needs is unknown to God. If I again asked you the question, “what do you need?,” would your answer be different this time? Would you write out a longer list, taking into account not only your emotional requests perhaps, but your spiritual and physical needs as well?

As you now mentally compose this list, here’s what I’d like you to keep in mind…

  • God sees you, He knows you, and He loves you through every circumstance.
  • God supplies all your need according to His very riches.
  • God provides in a way that glorifies His Son through who you are.
  • God provided everything by Jesus Christ.

I invite you to come boldly to the throne of grace to obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need! (see Hebrews 4:16) And to make your needs and requests known to God...even now!
