We run short of love, patience, joy, gentleness, and self-control. We run short of wisdom, understanding and ability. We run short of hope, strength, and passion. We run short of finances and of what we think will bring us happiness. It’s when we run short that we run to the Lord. We come to Him, knowing that no matter what we reach for to fill the void, only He can satisfy.
Not only we find ourselves lacking emotionally, but physically as well. God supplies all of our needs. If we need food, He’ll multiply our resources. If we lack strength, He’ll increase His power. When we are deficient, He is all sufficient. When we feel inferior, we remember He is superior. When we cannot, He can. God uses our lack to show us His abundance
God doesn’t meet our needs according to our riches, but according to His. We cannot measure what He will do based on who we are or what we have. When we run short, we find He is more than enough and bestows treasures upon us. We all fall short of the glory of God, but when we receive Him, we receive His glory and learn to expect from Him what only He can give, from glory to glory!
Philippians 4:19 “And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”When we cannot, He can. Click To Tweet
