"And my God shall supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus." (ASV)
"And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus." (NKJV)
As I sit in write I am reminded of all of the times before I was saved that God was still at work in my life. There are so many things that I believed to be coincidence or fate or just a work of the world that I now see was God. I was so loved by my God before I even acknowledged Him or His Son. Don't get me wrong, I loved God and I knew of Him and His great works. I had yet to delve in to a relationship with Him though. Once I was able to boldly and humbly stand before Him in His throne room and announce that I am His child, my world completely changed on end."And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus." (NLT)
I see now as I am a child of God how great it is that He is able to provide everything that we need. In that same way as I discussed in yesterday's post, God has more to give then we could ever need. He is definitely able to provide more than we will ever know to ask for Him to provide.
When things are going well and when things are easily manageable within our means, it is easy to forget that God is still at work. Do we think that life is really that easy? No it is God playing out His work and His plan constantly through the Holy Spirit which is dwelling inside of all of us. It is the times that are more difficult that we need to rely on the greatness of God's overflowing glory.
