Philippians 4:19 - All Our Need In Christ.

Phil.4:19: All Our Need In Christ.

Phil 4:19 (KJV)  But my God shall supply all your need according 
to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. 

God promises to meet all the "needs" of believers, not 
necessarily all their "wants" [New Bible Companion] 

We can trust that God will always meet our needs. Whatever we 
need on earth he will always supply, even if it is the courage to 
face death as Paul did. Whatever we need in heaven he will supply. We 
must remember, however, the difference between our wants and our 
needs. Most people want to feel good and avoid discomfort or pain. We 
may not get all that we want. By trusting in Christ, our attitudes 
and appetites can change from wanting everything to accepting his 
provision and power to live for him.  [Life Application SB] 

In glory. Some refer this phrase to the "riches," as riches that 
are stored "in glory," that is, in heaven. Others connect "shall 
supply" and "in glory," and imply that the reward will be given in the 
hereafter. This second view tends to restrict God's working, whereas the 
Lord is well able to supply the Christian's need in this life as well 
as in that which is to come. [SDA Commentary] 

By Christ Jesus. Rather, "in Christ Jesus," or "in personal 
connection with Christ Jesus." All God's kindnesses are given to men 
through Christ, and can be enjoyed by those who are connected with the 
Saviour. [SDA Commentary] 

Because of a recession and home renovations, our financial 
resources were depleted. Each month our budget was stretched to meet many 
expenses. There was no money for the perm my hair needed so badly.  
One Friday afternoon as a car pulled out of a parking lot, I 
noticed that the driver had left her handbag on the ground. When honking 
my horn failed to get her attention, I raced to collect the handbag 
and followed the car. Because the traffic lights hindered my 
progress, the car soon disappeared.  
At home I checked the woman's handbag for identification. Her 
place of employment was given, but when I called, no one answered. Her 
home address was listed without a telephone number. The telephone 
operator confirmed that the number was unpublished.  
I was able to track down the woman's husband, whom I knew only 
by reputation. Not long after my call, the woman arrived at my 
house to collect her handbag, which she had not even missed!  
Monday morning I was again in the parking lot. The woman whose 
handbag I had recovered was speaking to her husband and pointing to me. 
Suddenly the husband was standing by my car window saying, "It was nice 
of you to retrieve my wife's handbag. We were so relieved that 
nothing was missing. My wife had plane tickets and other valuables in 
her handbag. You have been so kind; I would like to give you a 
I protested vigorously, but he continued, "Here is my card. I 
would like to give you a free hairdo-anything you want done. Please 
call and arrange an appointment."  
Recognizing the man as one of the most renowned hairdressers, I 
changed my tune and excitedly accepted his card. "Praise the Lord!" I 
exclaimed. "You have answered one of my prayers. Thank you!"  
In my car I had a glorious prayer and praise service, thanking 
God for showing me that "our heavenly Father has a thousand ways to 
provide for us, of which we know nothing." (DA330) [Betty Anne Lowe 

Whether the need be spiritual or temporal, God will withhold no 
good thing from the righteous (Ps. 84:11). [SDA Commentary]
