God Shall Supply All Your Needs
“My God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory, by Christ Jesus”. (Phil. 4:19).
Abraham refused to defile himself with the defiled things of the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah. This is the second thought. That is why he refused to take thread or shoe-laces or even a piece of bread. It is when we are very hungry and thirsty that we have many temptations. We get doubts about trusting God for all our needs. Some servants of God say that they serve God but, by means of letters and photos. They beg for money.
For this reason they send reports of their work. They want more and more money. They are not satisfied. So they remain in want and remain barren spirituality. But if you just trust God he will provide you with all your wants even to your shoelaces. Don’t go to the King of Sodom for help, for this is how many believers lose their faith. To get a job or promotion they go to worldly people and use worldly methods, or trust their aunts and uncles for money for their marriages.
It was to enable Abraham to withstand the temptation of accepting the offer of the King of Sodom that he received spiritual food, and, being strengthened he was able to conquer temptation when it came. In these days of food shortage in India there is the temptation to send reports to America or other countries. What hypocrisy! Such deceive themselves and others and lose faith in God. But if we honor God as did Abraham, God will honor us, and supply all our needs.
