And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19

Today we see the rather paradoxical nature of God’s economy. In God´s Kingdom, as we give of ourselves to others (Philippians 4: 10, 15-18), God meets our needs. And the best part is that God does not meet our needs according to the world’s standards but according to the riches of his glory in Chris!

Trust grows as we selflessly give and offer of ourselves to others while we trust that He will provide. Trust grows as we share in our brothers and sisters’ problems while we trust that we will be taken care of even as we pour ourselves out onto others.

It’s a riddle…to the eyes of the world it may seem like opposing concepts...but to the eyes of God…it is the way to become more intimately acquainted with the meaning of total dependency on Him.

May we realize that as we give the fragrant offering of our service to others, Our Heavenly Father will amply meet our very own needs not according to the measure of what we have given, but “according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.”
