God’s Abundant Riches In Christ Jesus

May 17, 2013 | Tags: ,

Cross of ChristAnd my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.

-Philippians 4:19

God delights in lavishing good gifts upon His children.  This shows His great love for us, and God’s good gifts are way better than anything the world can offer. The world believes good gifts are only things like money, possessions, power, or prestige. God can certainly bestow those things because He is God, but the eternal rewards are the ones that truly show His riches in Christ Jesus. What are God’s glorious riches? A closer walk with Jesus, more knowledge and wisdom in God’s Word, the healing of personal brokenness, restored relationships, close friendships with other believers, and experiencing God in the plans and purposes He specifically created you for. These are some of the glorious riches in Christ Jesus.

What are you seeking God for today? What needs are you praying He will meet for you? Believe He wants to meet every need in your life, and thankfully, He knows better than us what those needs are. He delights in surprising us. We often think we need something desperately, only to find that God will meet the true need in our heart–the one we never realized was seriously deficient. When He does this, we experience His fellowship and character at a whole new level. And we cannot do anything else but be at awe at what an amazing God He truly is.

Dear Jesus, I praise you today that you are an amazing God. You delight in meeting my needs and delight in showing me how deeply you care for me. I thank you so much for this new day where I get to experience you in fresh and new ways. May this day reflect your glory in my life, and may you use me to show those around me how much you care about each and every one of us. In your Heavenly Name I pray, Amen.
