Daily Insight October 15
“And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19.
Let God’s love, resources and power satisfy you.
Alexander Pope, one of the greatest English poets said, “Blessed is he who expects nothing, for he shall never be disappointed.”
We naturally tend to place our expectations on others. We put our expectations on parents, children, spouses, friends and even church and its members. The outcome is we get disappointed. The truth is that none will be willing and able to meet all your needs. This is the truth we learn in our lives as we grow in life.
The people around you do not have enough love, resources, and power because their love, resources, and power are limited. When they ran out of their love, resources, and power, you get disappointed. We all learn this from our life experiences, don’t we?
Beloved, God wants you to lean on him for all your needs. Jesus taught the disciples to pray for their daily needs and protection. You see, His resources, power, and love are neither limited nor conditional. His love, power, and resources are unlimited and unconditional. Bible says in Psalms 34:5 says people who looked on him (God) are glad and they will never be disappointed.
You may have done a lot of sacrifices and good things for someone near to you or a group of people. Do you think they are going to cherish/remember you for a long time? Most probably, they are not. People disappoint us. On the contrast, God remembers all the small things you did for his name. He will reward you for all your love and service for him. But do not expect any reward from people. Do not let you get disappointed by placing an expectation on others. Whoever maybe- your spouse, children, co-believers or friend. You do what God called you to do. Do your assignment faithfully as you would to the Lord. At the due time, he will reward you. Guaranteed! God has an excellent track record in remembering and rewarding.
Bible says in Ephesians 6:8, “Remember, the Lord will pay you for each good thing you do, whether you are slave or free.” There is no shadow of a doubt. God will pay you or reward you for each good thing you do, whatever your status in the society is.
Today’s insight says, “And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” When God supplies, did you notice, he rewards according to His riches in glory? Think about how rich God is. How glorious He is. He will supply according to the manner of His riches and glory. Secondly, God rewards you according to his all-sufficient and supernatural richness and glory by Christ Jesus. Your reward comes by His Son, Jesus Christ, who died, buried and rose again for all your sins and shortcomings.
Beloved, do you have Jesus in your life? If so you are richer than many others in this world.
Have you come to Jesus and accepted him as your savior and Lord? If so, God supplies and reward you according to His richness in glory because you trusted in Jesus as your savior and Lord. He is the all-sufficient savior all through your life and afterlife.
If you haven’t yet, you can get connected to God and His immense provisions in and through Jesus Christ right now with a small prayer. God cleanses and purifies from your sins- past, present and future-by the blood of Christ. When you come to Jesus God adopts you into his heavenly family and grants you eternal life. You become a co-heir with Jesus on all of God’s riches, glory, and inheritance.
Instead of placing your expectations on people, begin placing your trust and expectation on God. Then you will never be disappointed. Remember, people disappoint, but God never.
Got a moment for today’s prayer? “Father in heaven, you promised when I look at your face and lean on him, I will not be disappointed. I look to you and lean on you for all my needs. You also said you shall supply all my needs according to your riches in glory by Christ Jesus. I believe Jesus died and rose again for my sins. He paid for all my sins and shortcomings. I come and accept him as my savior and Lord. Please save me now. In Christ’s name, I pray. Amen.
