WORD FOR TODAY. CJM “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”  Philippians 4:19

That has to include food, money, companionship, direction and peace of mind, to name but a few of our basic needs. So we can therefore trust that God will do what He says He will do. 
But also notice what this verse DOES NOT SAY. It says God will supply all our needs, not necessarily our wants. It is easy sometimes to get the two confused. You might think you need an extra few thousand dollars to buy that “certain thing,” whereas God might know you don’t actually need it at all. You might be certain you need a spouse, when God knows that perhaps—for reasons you might not discern— you need no such thing right now. This suggestion to us that His promise calls for trust on our part—trust that God will do what He says, and trust that He knows what we really need and what we really don’t. As you trust God to do only the right things in your life, you can be certain that God will provide your needs.
