And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19 NLT
As I was researching some “I am” statements, I came upon this declaration – I have no lack for my God supplies all of my need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. I thought of the correlating verse in Psalm 34:10 “Even strong young lions sometimes go hungry, but those who trust in the LORD will lack no good thing.”
The New Living Translation expounds the first three words of the traditional rendering of the the verse – “and my God” to the expression “and this same God who takes care of me”. Before tallying up all that you have or do not have, notice what you already possess – a family relationship with the God of the universe. As a child of God, you have the privilege to call Him, Abba, Daddy, Father or my God.
Perhaps you don’t feel very close to God. Perhaps you believe He is so busy doing other good things, He doesn’t have time to listen to you ramble on about your needs. Perhaps you struggle relating to an invisible person who has promised to be with you always. Perhaps you are fearful to “test or try” the Lord to see if His promise is true to open the windows of heaven and pour out blessings upon you. Perhaps you fail to engage God because you are too busy and distracted. Perhaps you are tired of the merry-go-round of being close to God and then not being close.
“My God!” Start your day with remembering and connecting with your personal relationship with Jesus, your savior and friend. He, who started the good work in you, will carry it all the way until you meet Him face to face. Bring your lack, your joy, your fears, your concerns, your worries, your trials and your troubles. Talk with Him. He is very much alive and available to you. Right now!
Am i, I am lacking in no good thing, because I am in relationship with “My God”. Ask, Seek, Knock! You will see deliverance and saving actions from God in you and through your life.
Blessings Love y’all
