Summary: American’s Need Nothing!!! We need to ignore our wants and use the blessings we have to further the Gospel - WORLD MISSIONS MESSAGE
MAKING THEIR NEED YOUR NEED
I believe the greatest discovery that one can make after salvation is that Jesus not only wants to be our Saviour
HE WANTS TO BE OUR SUPPLIER
“But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in
glory by Christ Jesus.”
For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills.
I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are mine.
If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof.
Will I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats?
Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay thy vows unto the most High:
And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.
The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the LORD of hosts.
The Key to untold and untapped resources is Giving
In the Context of Scripture Phil. 4:19
The Philippians were missions supporters
This is known by verse 14 & 17
14 -- The word “COMMUNICATE”
It means Partaker or partner
THEY SENT SUPPLIES TO PAUL
17 “They sent a Gift to Paul”
MANY TAKE THIS VERSE AND RUN WITH IT SAYING THAT GOD WILL SUPPLY FOR THEM
I BELIEVE HE SUPPLIES FOR THOSE WHO ARE SACRIFICIAL TO THE WORK OF GOD!!!
GOD’S PEOPLE ARE ALL TOO OFTEN BOUND BY THE WORLD’S ECONOMY
BUT HAPPY DAY WHEN YOU MAKE THIS DISCOVERY
“THAT GOD WILL SUPPLY ALL YOUR NEEDS”
2Co 9:8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:
Eph 3:20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
And your threshing shall reach unto the vintage, and the vintage shall
reach unto the sowing time: and ye shall eat your bread to the full,
and dwell in your land safely.
And the LORD thy God will make thee plenteous in every work of thine
hand, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit
of thy land, for good: for the LORD will again rejoice over thee for good, as
he rejoiced over thy fathers:
I will abundantly bless her provision: I will satisfy her poor with bread.
Then shall he give the rain of thy seed, that thou shalt sow the ground withal; and bread of the increase of the earth, and it shall be fat and plenteous: in that day shall thy cattle feed in large pastures.
The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.
Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand.
I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.
