“But my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19
In this Scripture, you have to love Paul’s confidence in his God and how he makes God special to himself. Often when we are talking to others, we tell them to trust that their God will take care of them, but here Paul takes it to another level by declaring what his God shall do for others. Have you made your God special to you? Have you owned your Lord with the same possession that He owns you? Do you declare Him to be your God? Your Provider? Your Healer? Your Peace? Your Righteousness? There’s the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, the God of Jacob, the God of Paul and then there’s your God. Say out loud, “He is my God!” And just as He was mighty in the lives of others, so He is with you.
It’s time you take your relationship with Him to a deeper and new level. He longs to be made special, taken and held close as something dear, seen and treasured, esteemed and loved, boasted and bragged on as your God. Many boast about many things, their house, their education, their strength, their wisdom, their wealth, but God tells us if we’re going to boast about anything, if we are going to say, “Hey, everybody look at this!” Let us boast and brag on the fact that we know and understand God (Jeremiah 9:23-24). Let us brag about what He has done, what He is doing right now, and what He will do! Make Him special to you. Your God.
Prayer: Yes, Father! You are my God! Your are Jehovah-Jireh, God my Provider. You are Jehovah-Shalom, You God my Peace. You are Jehovah-Tsidkenu, You are God my Righteousness. You are Jehovah-Rapha, You are God my Healer. You are Jehovah-Shammah, You are there and very present in my life. I am so thankful that You are my God. And just as You was with Abraham, You are here with me. You love me just the same. You will protect me just the same. You will be glorified, not just in my life, but in the lives of those around me because You are my Great God! I brag on You. I boast in You. I love You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
