Your Need Supplied

Your need is God's opportunity to provide. All of us have needs. Fear says, "No one is going to provide for your needs. You are a needy person with no one who can help." Faith says, "My God shall supply all of my need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus" (Philippians 4:19).

Your greatest need is not physical nor financial. Your greatest need is spiritual. You need God. You need faith in God who provides. His covenant name among others is Jehovah-jireh, which means God will provide. 

You need purpose in life. You need to know that your life counts. Believe that your life counts when it comes to God. He made you. His Son died for you. He has you in this world for a purpose. He has given you talents and gifts to serve others. God will use you to provide the needs of others, and you will discover your purpose in life. God not only provides for you, but God also will provide through you to others.

God will provide for you, as your heavenly Father. He knows your needs before you ask. Prayer is not designed to inform God. He knows all things. Prayer receives from God our Father. Jesus said to pray, "Our Father in heaven" (Matthew 6:9). He taught us to make requests based upon our needs. "Give us this day our daily bread" (Matthew 6:11). God will provide.
