Meaning of And My God Will Meet All Your Needs | Short Sermon Series
God is infinitely wealthy and never lacks the ability to provide for those who trust in him. He would have us be content, but he will also richly supply what he ordains that we should have. His Word says, “Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart” (Ps 37:4). This means he will change your desires to match his, and at the same time provide what you newly desire.
#1 “And…” Their gift sent by way of Epaphroditus was a “fragrant offering, an acceptable sacrifice, pleasing to God” (Phil 4:18). We have been saved into a holy priesthood to offer acceptable sacrifices (1 Pt 2:5). As a result of their offering, God will be re-supplying them.
#2 “…my God will meet all your needs…” Whatever your needs are, when you trust in him, especially by way of giving for the sake of his mission, he will not fail to meet all your needs. There may be some wants and desires that are not from him, but he will bring your heart’s desires in line with what he is providing. If there is something that you need, he will supply it.
#3 “…according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.” Once again, there is no limit to God’s riches. That he will give to us out of the “riches of his glory in Christ Jesus,” means that it is through Jesus, and because of Jesus that we have the Father as our supplier. God is the head of Christ, and Christ is the head of man (1 Cor 11:3). The head is the leader and source. All God’s gifts come to us through the glorious Savior, Jesus Christ.
