Pastor’s Corner – God will meet all your needs

By Rev. Dennis Van Gorp Family Life Christian Center

The Holy Scriptures reveal that when a person lives in obedience to God, their life is fruitful and healthy. In contrast to that, the natural and normal worries of life can stress us to the point of being unfruitful. Add to that the unexpected events and circumstances that can cause even more stressful problems to appear.

That God cares for us can be seen in Exodus 23:25 “Worship the Lord your God, and His blessing will be on your food and water.” Also in Malachi 3:10 we read – “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in My House. Test Me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it.”

Notice that the blessings and provision of God are conditional. He expects worship and obedience and honor first. Matthew 6:33 “Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you.”

Hard times come and go. Tragedies come and go. Disappointments come and go. But the Lord remains forever. He patiently waits for us to desire and to seek His help in our circumstances.

The Apostle Paul wrote in Philippians chapter 4:12) “I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty.” 13)“I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.” 19)“And my God will meet all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus. 20)“To our God be the glory forever and ever. Amen!”
