He Takes Pleasure In Providing, Evans Olang

Posted on Updated on


Philippians 4:19, “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus”

Our Heavenly Father takes pleasure in providing for His children. He is the God of too much, the bible says, “A thousand cattle on the hills belongs to Him“, “Riches and Glory are His“, The God of the impossibilities. He knows each of His children in and out and He knows all their needs. He knows how to give good things to His children. Matthew 7:11, “If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!”. He gives good things, not corrupt, broken, despised, or rejected. He gives the best to His own. He does it with joy, pleasure and gladness, and He gives with all of His heart. Psalm 23:1, “The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not lack (AMP)”. The work of a shepherd is to feed, guide, protect, inspect His sheep.  With Him being the Shepherd He guarantees His provision.

None of us qualifies for a blessing but each of us desire a blessing and the Father takes pleasure in blessing His children, David says in Psalm 37:25, “I have been young, and now am old; Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, Nor his descendants begging bread“. The more we walk with the Lord, the more we see how faithful He is even when we are faithless. The blessing is not reserved for those who are perfect; He desires to bless those who are His. You agree with me that there are many of the unsaved that God has blessed. More blessings does not mean more love and also does not mean He prefers more blessed people than less blessed. The bible says, “He shows mercy to whoever He wants to show mercy, and grace to whoever He wants to show grace”.

We are all looking to God to supply our needs, some have financial needs, healing needs, guidance, strength, hope, you name it. When you know that no one else can come to your rescue but the one who created you, you will run to Him knowing that He is faithful. The Philippians had been a blessing to Paul. Paul’s needs were met by God through the Philippians and he in turn encouraged them by saying “my God shall supply all your need”, not some of their needs but all their needs. If you need it, God will supply you with it. What a blessing to know that His supply is greater than demand. That He has a lot of ways to bless you. He may choose to use a means you were not even expecting or a person you were not thinking about. Paul was not expecting the Philippians to bless him but God used them anyway.

God is not only concerned about your spiritual life, He is concerned about your physical needs too. He is concerned about your family (wife, husband, children, parents), He is concerned about your health Psalm 103:3, “…who heals all your diseases“, he is concerned about your finances, in short, He is concerned about your wellbeing. All you have to do is ask. Hannah asked for a son, Hezekiah desired a prolonged life, Jabez asked for a blessing, Samson asked for strength, Paul asked for boldness to preach the gospel, they all asked according to His will and He supplied according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Remember today that God takes pleasure in providing for His children. Blessings Ev
