“And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19).
When Paul the Apostle saw people with requirements and short comings he wanted to show them the path of blessings. He says with love, “My God is rich. He is wealthy. He knows your requirements and short comings. With His richness He will turn all your shortages into plenty and bless.”
When you come nearer to Christ, you get rid of sins and the joy of Salvation arrives. All the curses are wiped out and blessings arrive. Do God’s blessings end there? No. He is eager to look into your financial conditions too and set things right. Paul the Apostle who is so proud in saying ‘my God’ assures that God will rectify all our shortfalls.
“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us” (Ephesians 3:20). What we think and what we ask are less indeed. But the wealth on the side of Christ could not be defined in words. Is it not all the gold, silver and all the cattle are His? He is so happy in giving all His glorious wealth to His children.
In the wedding at Cana Jesus saw six water pots of stone being kept there. Generally wine is stocked in tiny skins. But Christ wanted to give wine in all the six pots of stone. English Bible says that the servants filled the jars to the brim.
King David says in ecstasy “My cup runs over.” Yes. God never fills a vessel with a measure of quarter or half but He fills full and full until it overflows.
What is it you have to do to get such a blessing from Him? “Give and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For, with the same measure that you use it will be measured back to you.” (Luke 6:38). This verse possesses the secret over the spiritual blessing of God. What you give to God may be meagre, but what God gives to you will be of overflowing nature.
To meditate: “Says the Lord of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it” (Malachi 3:10).
