The Certainty of God’s Supply
Posted on March 25, 2019 by America's Keswick in Freedom Fighters
“And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19
America’s Keswick has hundreds of stories that illustrate this truth. I am thankful that they are not just stories from the past, but fresh ones in the present.
Earlier in the month, our CFO came to tell me that our finances were very tight. In fact, he said, “We are the tightest that we have been in years.”
I left his office and my heart sunk. As I was at my desk, God spoke to my heart – not in an audible voice – but very clearly. “You asked for $30,000 for the Raws Memorial Window project, and I supplied $34,000. Am I not able to supply for your DAILY needs?
I had just read a quote found in the papers of Dr. Addison Raws, the son of our founder, William Raws:
Deep down I was excited to see what God was going to do, but did I REALLY believe He would do it?
Two days later, my CFO came into my office and began to cry uncontrollably. I thought someone had died. But he handed me a letter dated several weeks earlier.
Our credit card bills totaled $30,000 and our regular bills, $45,000 – a staggering amount. But the check enclosed with the letter he handed me was for $97,235.O7!!!!!!!!! Once again, God provided for our needs.
The next day, I read these words from Richard Blackaby from Experiencing God – The Devotional:
This verse is one of the most practical we will ever encounter in the Bible. Every one of us faces needs in our lives; at times, they are beyond our own means. Those are not the times to become anxious or to panic. Nor should we give up in defeat. It is at these times that God wants to draw from His unlimited storehouse to meet our need as only He can. Do you believe God can meet the needs of your finances? Your health? Your children? Your parents? Your church?
Scripture says you will never face a need for which God’s provision is not more than adequate. This promise appears over and over again in the Scriptures (Ps. 116:6; Heb. 4:16; Matt. 6:8; Ps. 69:33).
If you are not experiencing God’s bountiful provision, what is the problem? Is the difficulty with God? Or could it be that you do not really believe that God stands ready to meet your every need?
Every resource of God is available to any child of God who will believe Him. No one has ever exhausted God’s supply nor suffered a shortfall when trusting Him. Unfortunately, some Christians live as if God’s abundant resources were not available to them. They are children of the King, but they live like beggars! Would the people close to you affirm that your life gives evidence of an unwavering belief that God will do what He said?

I trust this story will be an encouragement to you. HE IS ABLE! Are you willing to trust Him?
