WANTS, NEEDS AND DESIRES; 1

Philippians 4:19.                          “You can be sure that God will take care of everything you need, his generosity exceeding even yours in the glory that pours from Jesus.”

This is a promise of provision from God. Whatever you need God will provide. Actually, when He gives it is often in excess of your expectation. This is because God doesn’t look at you and decide what you deserve; He looks at Christ and gives out of the love that flowed on Calvary.

The operative word here though is need. This provision is not for whims and desires, but for needs. Sometimes what you want and what you need are two sharply contrasting things. Sometimes we can’t even tell the difference because of our overwhelming desire. Trust God to know the difference and provide.

Think About This 
Do you need what you want?


Prayer 
Dear Lord, Help me to know the difference between a want and a need. Teach me to approach You for either. In Jesus name I pray. Amen
