BIBLE TAKEOUT – 5/29/13

0
19 “And my God will supply [o]all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.”

TEACHING: 

Take a deeper look – in context – of this scripture before you run off to the bank with it to cash in your winning lottery ticket. 

Paul first talks about how he has learned to be content regardless of his circumstances. He doesn’t promise a winning lottery ticket.

And he first commends the people for their giving and generosity before he talks about God supplying their need – not their want. 

CHALLENGE: 

Instead of focusing on getting your wants met, why not focus on God and His will for your life and trust Him to meet your need. 

10 “But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at last you have revived your concern for me; indeed, you were concerned before, but you lacked opportunity. 

11 Not that I speak [g]from want, for I have learned to be [h]content in whatever circumstances I am.

12 I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need.

13 I can do all things [i]through Him who strengthens me.

14 Nevertheless, you have done well to share with me in my affliction.

15 You yourselves also know, Philippians, that at the [j]first preaching of the gospel, after I left Macedonia, no church shared with me in the matter of giving and receiving but you alone;

16 for even in Thessalonica you sent a gift more than once for my needs.

17 Not that I seek the gift itself, but I seek for the [k]profit which increases to your account.

18 But I have received everything in full and have an abundance; I am[l]amply supplied, having received from Epaphroditus [m]what you have sent, [n]a fragrant aroma, an acceptable sacrifice, well-pleasing to God.

19 And my God will supply [o]all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.”

– Phil. 4: 10-19 NASB
