My God Will

This week’s:

I’m sitting here in the bedroom attempting to read by Bible and figure out something to write for this week when I get a text from my hubby… from the next room. “Whatcha’ doin?” Several texts later and I’m smiling thinking about our son sitting at the computer positioned between us and the “whistling” text alerts that are flying past his head as he plays his game. And that’s when my eyes came to it, God’s word for us this week: “I have received your message, and I will supply all you need.” 1 Kings 5:8

Christmas is a time of, well, it’s a time of a lot of things. It’s set up to be a time of joy, and hope and giving… but for many, it’s a time to remember someone they don’t have any more. For some it’s a devastating reminder of the small amounts that linger in the dredges of their bank accounts while they attempt to give their children “a good Christmas” (which I feel I MUST point out is not possible to provide with money – but with LOVE ALONE!)

While Christmas is intended to be a time of joy it is often, for many, a time for pain. And yet, like a text message from a loving husband from the next room Our Father send you one of His own, “I have received your message, and I will supply all you need.” It’s a common thread through scripture, perhaps because it’s the message we need to hear often. Paul receives such a message in 2 Corinthians 12:7-10

“So to keep me from becoming proud, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger from Satan to torment me and keep me from becoming proud. Three different times I begged the Lord to take it away. Each time He said, ‘My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.’ So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses so that the power of Christ can work through me. That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”

What’s even more beautiful is how Paul blesses his followers in Philippi with the very same statement God had first blessed him with: “My God will meet all your needs according to the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19). He had taken those words that God had spoken over him and absorbed them to the point that he understood them to be true. And they are True words. Not only is God able to meet all your needs according to the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus, He is willing to as well. It says so right there, it’s the third word into the verse, “My God WILL”.

Yes. My God WILL.

My God WILL ease this pain of loss in my life.

Yes, My God WILL supply my needs according to His riches.

My dear friend, don’t be afraid, your God WILL!

He is able, He is loving, and He is willing too. Fear not Dear One, you are loved.
