And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:19

Someone has called this verse a blank check on the Bank of Faith to be filled in by the believer as need arises. The Bank’s credit is infinite. There are assets in abundance; riches of grace, riches of love, riches of mercy, and riches of glory. Whatever the circumstances in which the child of God is found there is sufficient for every need, whether temporal or spiritual. We are to be anxious about nothing, but prayerful for everything as we come to God in a spirit of thanksgiving to appropriate in faith what He delights to give. We are so prone to doubt and worry when we should trust and enjoy the goodness of our Father’s mercies. A motto we have often seen says, “If you worry you do not trust. If you trust you do not worry.” Commit all to Him. Claim His promise and He will meet every need.

Friend, dost thou in thine inmost heart believe this word?

Then trust—yea, wholly trust thy loving Lord.

Trust Him each day, each hour, and thou shalt see

Each need supplied, Christ’s riches used for thee.
