God's Purpose in Meeting Our Needs

Philippians 4:19

Philippians 4:19: "But my God shall supply all your need, according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus."

Most of us have read and heard this verse quoted many times. It is a great promise to believers who are struggling with their circumstances. But have you ever stopped to ask why? Why would God supply all our need? Or what about this question; why, as believers, do we have needs? Why does God allow them to come into our lives?

God allows needs in our lives to drive us to Him. So we will ask for His help to take care of the matter. He always does take care of our needs and through the process of time we often learn more about the purposes of God allowing those needs to come into our lives.

I. It is essential for our encouragement.

II. It is essential for our development.

III. It is essential for our confidence in the character of God.

Why does God meet our needs?

What are our needs tonight? God desires to meet them. To offer us encouragement, to further our development, and to give us confidence in His character.
