And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:19, NIV)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
In Second Samuel Chapter 12, David had gotten off course. The prophet Nathan was correcting him. In doing so, he reminded David of what God had brought him through. David had seen Gods goodness, favor, protection, finances and healing down through the years. And in verse 8, Nathan made an interesting statement. He said, David, if it had not been enough, God would have given you much, much more. In other words, David, looking back over your life, if you were ever lacking, if you ever needed more wisdom, more favor, more protection, more finances, God would have given it to you.
That tells us that we have what we need right now in order to fulfill our destiny. The moment that what you have becomes not enough is the moment that God will give you more. The moment something starts to keep you from your destiny, the moment it begins to stop Gods plan for your life is the moment God will show up and intervene on your behalf.
Today, be encouraged that you have what you need, and what you need tomorrow is on its way! God is faithful and gives you what you need to fulfill His purposes.
A Prayer for Today
