Standing In God’s Word.

TEXT: ‘And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.’ Philippians 4:19 (ESV)

It usually takes grace, and not human might, to agree with God’s word in this present world that appears to be running a system far different from God’s. Standing firm in the Lord is not an easy task however through Christ Jesus we are given the grace and strength to show forth our godliness in every circumstance.

God is not unjust nor demands ‘benefits’ from where He has not sown. God has provided for us all things that we need for life and godliness. This is why Paul could proclaim that he had learned to ‘abound’ in all circumstances, whether they are low or high times.

God’s resources are available for all seasons and Phil 4:6 reminds us to go back to God in prayer whenever we feel overwhelmed by the evident ‘burdens’ of being a Christian in a perishing world.

LEARN and APPLY: Philippians 4:8 has the best wisdom for us to follow- ‘whatever is true, honourable, just, pure, lovely, commendable, excellent, worthy of praise, think about these things.’ And we thank God that His word covers all of these attributes.

Prayer Focus
Help me dear Lord to be faithful to Your word. Help me to stand by You forever. Let me dwell in Your tent forever, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
