“Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God. And my God will liberally supply (fill to the full) your every need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6&19 ->me: Today I have been discouraged but unnecessarily so. I need to hear these 2 verses that set my heart right and keep me from not only losing faith but being excited to see God work. There are 16 of us going to Mexico in October to build a house for an impoverished family and we have less than 2 months before we leave. We are trusting God to provide the funds necessary for the materials for the house, our airline fares, accommodations, and food for 4 days. We have a ways to go before the trip is funded and today it was weighing on me (for the first time really). I was fretting and had anxiety about this just as Paul tells me not to. Paul says that God will ‘liberally’ supply our every need according to His riches in the glory of His Son! Paul says that we pray and petition (to make specific requests) with thanksgiving! Meaning we thank God for what He will do before He does it! Thank you Lord God for the reaffirmation that you are in control and when we are seeking your face and dwelling in your temple you will give us what we need when we need it.
