But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus – Philippians 4:19
In Isaiah 45:3, the Lord made a promise to the children of Israel: “…I will give thee the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places….” It was a promise to them. However, to the new creation in Christ, this has become a reality. In Christ, you have access to the vast treasures and inestimable riches in the earth; they’re yours by inheritance: “Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light” (Colossians 1:12).
1 Corinthians 3:21 says, “…all things are yours.” This should give you a mind-set of abundance, where you function without a sense of need. Jesus had no sense of need. Think about His response when Peter came to Him for money to pay the tax collectors! He said, “…go cast a line into the lake and pull out the first fish you hook. Open its mouth and you will find a coin. Use it to pay your taxes and mine” (Matthew 17:27 CEV).
When the disciples were flustered over how to feed the multitude (five thousand men; the women and children were not counted) in the desert, Jesus was unruffled; and with a little boy’s lunch (five small loaves and two fish), He fed the multitude, and when they had all eaten, there were still twelve baskets full of leftovers. You might say, “Well, that was Jesus, the miracle-worker”; yes! But He did all that He did to show that we could do the same. He came to let us know that we could act like Him, think like Him, talk like Him, and win like Him (John 14:12).
Never think, or say you don’t have enough. With what you have, you can reproduce more. Get to the point in your life where you have no consciousness of need. Grow in the knowledge of God’s Word. As you do, you’ll transcend the “need-consciousness” because you see that everything has been provided for in Christ: “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue” (2 Peter 1:3). Halleluiah!

Amen.
Galatians 3:29 – And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
Romans 8:16 – The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: 17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
