Just a thought …by GLH,
“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart” (Hebrews 4:12).
As you study God’s Holy Word you are sure to notice the impact and importance of each and every word. Each verse has a lot to say and are convicting and convincing in their own right. Take Philippians 4:19, “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” God has promised to supply all that you need. He stipulates that those needs or blessings will come from His unlimited riches of Heaven by Christ Jesus the Holy One who gave Himself so that you could have everything. What an unwarranted blessing; what an unfathomable promise. This verse in and of itself gives hope to the destitute and joy to the weary and those of meager means. We can’t stop there. Even though we have been given a perfect reason to thank and to praise, we must continue on. As we join one verse or promise with another, it just keeps getting better and better.
“Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee” (Hebrews 13:5). We have His promise to meet our needs, now He promises to never leave or forsake us. Put it all together and we have an iron-clad guarantee to gain His favor as long as it is needed, and that is forever. He knows that we would never make it without Him; and, in His unlimited love and compassion, He has promised to meet our every need. You cannot have everything if you do not have God as your Heavenly Father. Thinking that you do is a fallacy and will end up being your demise. Just how important did God consider our salvation or deliverance to be? He forsook His own Son so that He would not have to forsake His creation. “And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me” (Matthew 27:46). I am sure that this is the most excruciating thing they had to endure; but, He willingly did it for all mankind. What a wonderful God, what a blessed Savior.
