But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to God. But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
In Phil 4:19, we are told that our God has an unlimited amount of resources He can draw upon to meet the needs of His people. His blessings flow to us through the work of His Son, Jesus Christ. It is really important to note the context of verse 18. This promise is given immediately after sacrificial giving is discussed.
When we are faced with the opportunity to sacrifice for the cause of Christ, remember, He is able to meet the necessities of our lives. Give freely of our time, talents and finances to help others, and know He will supply our needs. (Luke 6:38)
May the Lord bless each one of us as we “Think On These Things”.

It is good to see this verse put in context. I have often heard it quoted in completely out of context situations. All promises of God have provisions. While most are “If . . . then” others, such as this one, are contextually provisional and all are positionally conditional.
I rejoice that all the resources of heaven are available to us as we continue in His will, following His direction.
Over the years, I have observed that context is EVERYTHING when studying the Word… after all, if taken out of context, the Bible makes it plain that “There is no God”! (Psa 53:1) May the Lord bless you.
