Scripture Reading: Philippians 4:19

Paul spoke to the Philippian church of the matter of  need. He said, "I have learned, in whatsoever state I am,  therewith to be content. I know both how to be abased, and  I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am  instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound  and to suffer need" (Philippians 4:11-12). It was only after  this preliminary discourse that he assured the saints, "My  God shall supply all your need according to His riches in  glory by Christ Jesus."

If we are left to judge for ourselves, we are inclined to  confuse desires with needs. The promise is not that God  will supply all our whimsical wishes but all our need. His  power is limitless. He "is able to do exceeding abundantly  above all that we ask or think" (Ephesians 3:20). However,  it is HIS judgment that will determine how and when that  power will be exercised in our behalf. He will provide our  needs as He sees fit and in accordance with His will and  purpose. "And we know that all things work together for  good to them that love God, to them who are the called  according to His purpose" (Romans 8:28). If our hearts are  in tune, our desire will be that He alone will define our  needs and provide them only as He deems appropriate.

Even Paul had not the power of decision. Note his  words to the Philippians: "I am in a strait betwixt two,  having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far  better: nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for  you" (Philippians 1:23-24).

How God Saves Men
Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
Read Romans 1:16, Romans 10:9-10 and 1. Corinthians 15:1-4
