“And my God will supply every need of yours according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 4:19
“Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” – Matthew 6:31-33
It is a source of pride for many men that they see themselves as the chief provider for themselves and their families. But given that we have already addressed that all our attempts at success are in the hands of God (including getting a job and earning a paycheck), we must then rightly acknowledge that He is the One that meets our needs and provides for us – not ourselves. Christ taught that when we pray we are to ask God to give us our daily bread (Matthew 6:11), showing that even our day-to-day necessities are given to us, not procured by us. Remembering and acknowledging that everything we have is a gift is vital to maintaining a humble and honest perspective as we navigate life.
