-Roy Lessin, Jesus Name Above All Names
My God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19 NKJV
From the beginning, it has been in the heart of God to meet the needs of people. One of God's names is "The Lord Provides." He provides because He cares, because He loves, and because He is faithful.
Redemption was God's plan to meet our greatest needs—the need to be saved, to be forgiven, to fulfill God's purpose for our lives, and to be brought back into fellowship with Him. God is also concerned about meeting our personal, physical, and practical needs as well as our spiritual needs.
When Jesus lived among us, He clearly taught and expressed what was in the heart of His Father. Jesus told us that when we see Him—His actions, His attitudes, His acts—we have seen the Father.
Jesus wants us to know that when we face a problem we don't need to reason it out—let Him work it out. He helps us to understand that there are no limits with God and no limitations to His power. Jesus works in ways that will build our faith, increase our trust, and strengthen our confidence in Him. He wants us to live a life free of worry and anxiety, fear and doubt, confusion and uncertainty. He wants us to be contented, totally resting within the arms of His loving care.
