It’s been an interesting couple of weeks for me. It started with the Lord dropping in my heart that He will supply all my need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19). With that one Word from God, I suddenly felt the weight of all the pressing needs fall off. And the weight never returned!
After that, as I shared in my post on February 5th, need after need after need presented themselves. But He said He would supply all my need. I knew with all certainty that I had the supply for each need even before I saw the provision.
Then He proved this word to me in such a marvelous way. On the first Sunday of this month, we held our first Sunday morning Healing School. I was teaching and I really wanted to have musicians and singers there. I called and called and called and by that weekend I had no one scheduled. Then I said to the Lord, “If we need musicians then they’ll just show up.” I said it to God expecting Him to make it happen if it needed to happen. Wow did He make it happen. Some of the very top singers and one of our most anointed musicians just showed up.
The senior associate pastor at the piano said that on Friday the Lord told him to be at Healing School and to bring singers with him.
Now unto him that is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think… unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus… (Ephesian 3:20-21, Amplified)
Fast-forward to this past Sunday. The top leader on our healing ministry team, a person who is very reliable and always available, who along with me does most of the hospital calls, told me that he and his wife had been called to a new church. A couple of weeks ago I think the loss of this key person would have moved me. But not now. It was as though we were just talking about the weather. There was no fear, no anxiety, no “what are we going to do”. I just had a sense of peace that whatever help we need in the healing ministry, we have it.
This life is full of needs and they can create a lot of pressure as we try to figure out what we are going to do about them. As we look at the need sometimes it just seems to get bigger and bigger as the solution seems to be no where in sight. We look to ourselves for the solution and it just doesn’t seem to be there, yet we keep on looking to ourselves to figure it out and make the way. But more and more I am looking less and less at the need and less at myself and looking more to the One Who is called Jehova-Jireh, My Provider. And I have found that He is more than enough for me! He is all I need and He supplies all my need according to His riches in glory!
And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering? And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering… And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and look, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son. And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovah-jireh… (Genesis 22:7-8, 13-14; KJV)
He who did not withhold or spare [even] His own Son but gave Him up for us all, will He not also with Him freely and graciously give us all [other] things? (Romans 8:32, Amplified)
Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. (Matthew 6:31-33, KJV)
