31 Jesus-Benefits: Meeting Every Need

“Seek first God’s kingdom and what God wants. Then all your other needs will be met as well” (Matthew 6:33).

Day 28 and originally, I thought of financial provision, but I’ll widen it instead to give thanks for:

The way God provides for His people.

Because it’s not limited to financial provision: God wants to meet every need – to set the lonely in families (Psalm 68:6); be a Husband to the widow (Isaiah 54:4-5); a Father to the fatherless (Psalm 68:5), and yes, also to provide finances (Malachi 3:10). We can’t look exclusively to one person to meet our needs. They won’t always be able to. We saw earlier in the month that only God is forever and never disappoints. How does that make you feel?

“My God will use His wonderful riches in Christ Jesus to give you everything you need” (Philippians 4:19).

  1. It’s a lesson I learned long ago in college but have learned again and again in the decades since – God truly can provide any need, physical, emotional, financial, anything.

    • When it comes to physical need, I have heard about nuns in Siberia who refused to do manual labour because they were nuns. They were punished by being stripped, and yet at the end of the day, despite the freezing temperatures, God had kept them warm. I can trust that He’ll treat all His people who honour Him the same way.

  2. Yes He does provide in so many, many ways, and I’m so thankful He cares for me. His riches are unspeakable and we’ll never know how much at least not this side of heaven!
