I grew up in a culture where if you were good, God may give you want you needed – no more, no less. But as I have grown older and have develop a personal relationship with God, I have found Him to be a generous Father who loves to lavish His children with gifts. From Genesis to Revelation, God is good!
Now, even with that revelation, it does not prevent me from sometimes falling into my former way of thinking. Last year around this time, I was trying to figure out in my own resources how I could go on a mission’s trip and pay to have my book edited. God lavishly provided for both in ways I never would have imagined. I was humbled by his goodness. I was in awe of His faithfulness. I was amused by His creativity.
What has God called you to do? Do not allow lack or fear to prevent you from being all God has called you to be or do! Step out in faith, make your requests known and trust God to supply all of your needs according to His glorious riches (not yours or the worlds).
“Moreover, my God will fill every need of yours according to his glorious wealth, in union with the Messiah Yeshua. And to God our Father be the glory forever and ever. Amen.”
Philippians (Php) 4:19-20 CJB
