I feel like I am drowning each day by one thing…money. I am only twenty-five years old, and I am concerned with the amount of money that is in my bank account every day. Growing up, my family was always in debt. My parents went through a bankruptcy, which always instilled fear of the same happening to myself. I face that fear each day as I struggle with the amount of student loan debt that I have. Worry and anxiety overcome, and I always feel like I don’t have enough.
We all have our own needs that make us worry and put fear in us. Some of us have family and/or relationship issues. Others are constantly dealing with health concerns.No matter the case, we all are attempting to find ways to fulfill the needs we have in our lives. What if we had one person who could take care of each need?
God is the only one that can provide for all of our needs. No matter what it is, God is present in your life and will carry you through whatever you need. In Philippians 4:19, Paul writes, “And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus”. Paul is telling us that God loves us beyond what we can imagine, that He will take care of it. It doesn’t matter if it is health, money, relationships, etc., God supplies everything we need.
How can we know this is true? What proof do we have? Beyond the countless examples in the Bible, there is one example that trumps all else, the way God provided His Son to pay for our sins. We require a Savior. Without a Savior, we are destined to be drawn to sin. Sin leads us to be disconnected from God. God loves us so much that He supplied a sacrifice that would be for everyone, His Son Jesus.
Each one of our needs is different. We all carry burdens that weigh on us. However, we need to stop living each day, worrying about areas of our lives that God already has a plan for. We need to trust in Him and His promises to us. God will always provide and has a plan for us.
