“My God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19).
Paul the Apostle willed to show the way of blessing to the men of God who were not able to meet their needs and necessities. So he writes with love “My God is rich and wealthy. He knows all your shortfalls and requirements. He shall supply all your need according to His riches and bless you. He will supply what you lack.”
When you come unto Christ, the sins are cleared and the joy of Salvation comes. The curses are cleared giving way for the blessings to come. The diseases clear giving way for the perfect health to come. Do the blessings of God stop with this? No. God is eager to meet all your financial requirements and supply all you lack. Paul the Apostle proudly addresses as ‘My God’ and assures that ‘He will supply what you lack.”
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). The richness which we think or expect will be very less indeed. But the richness of Christ could not be explained in words. Is not all the silver, gold and all the livestock belong to God? He is very happy in giving all his glorious riches to his children.
When there was a shortage of wine in the wedding house at Cana, Jesus saw six water pots there which were biggest among others. Generally, people used to preserve the wine in tiny wineskins. But Christ wished to provide wine in such a way that all the big pots overflew with wine. The English version of the Scripture says that the servants filled the water in the pots up to the brim.
King David says with joyous ecstasy that his cup was running over. Yes. God never fills a vessel partly but in full. He pours on as the vessel overflows.
What have you to do to receive those blessings? Yes. “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 consists of the secret of the Spiritual blessing of God. What you give to God may be less but what God gives you will be abundant.
To meditate: “And try me now in this,” 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).
