Is this an ideal or reality? The reality of God supplying my needs is coming to the realization of what my true needs are. Knowing what my true needs are I can then bank on the riches of God and be satisfied.
Do I believe it and will I be satisfied by it.
We all are in search of something. That thing that will give us ultimate satisfaction. The thing that will say my life is complete. What is the thing you are chasing in your pursuit of contentment? What is the economic cost of your discontent?
Do I even know what will satisfy? Do I know what I am chasing? or Why? Is the thing that I am chasing, is it what I am made for. Scripture says that I am created for God. To find satisfaction in Him. Christianity is not a intellect, moralistic, but a gift of good news. Am I content with the gift of salvation and the implication of salvation. Contentment comes with partnership of the Gospel and building the Kingdom of God.
My God will supply your needs according to His riches.
Philippians 4:10-23English Standard Version (ESV)
10 I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at length you have revived your concern for me. You were indeed concerned for me, but you had no opportunity. 11 Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. 12 I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. 13 I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
14 Yet it was kind of you to share[a] my trouble. 15 And you Philippians yourselves know that in the beginning of the gospel, when I left Macedonia, no church entered into partnership with me in giving and receiving, except you only. 16 Even in Thessalonica you sent me help for my needs once and again. 17 Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the fruit that increases to your credit.[b] 18 I have received full payment, and more. I am well supplied, having received from Epaphroditus the gifts you sent, a fragrant offering, a sacrifice acceptable and pleasing to God. 19 And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. 20 To our God and Father be glory forever and ever. Amen.
21 Greet every saint in Christ Jesus. The brothers who are with me greet you. 22 All the saints greet you, especially those of Caesar’s household.
23 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit
All other things will fail. It is in my struggle that I have enough or that I am missing something is where my anxiety breeds. It is in contentment that humbleness and humility grows.
