Jesus, the provider

Who is Jesus?

Philippians 4:19  And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.

There is only one who is capable of providing for your every need.  No matter what you lack, He’s got it in stock.  You see, everything is His.  He owns all things.  As the Psalmist put it, the “cattle on a thousand hills” are His (Psalm 50:10).  Since He owns everything, He’s capable of providing anything you could ever need.  He lacks nothing.

“This is God!” you say, and yes it is.  God the Father does provide our every need but notice that He gives “according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.”  God’s riches, all of His treasure, is in the glory of Jesus!  When Jesus was sent to this earth to die for our sins, heaven was literally bankrupted of all its riches.  God put it all on the line, every chip was on the table.

Jesus is our Great Provider.  Just as He supplied endless food from just a small amount of bread and fish, He can give us all we need.  Do we trust in Him to do just that?
