My Riches

Philippines 4:19 - And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
We all have needs

The thought - do I try to supply my needs (because im independent) according to my riches(which seem to be lacking) or do I trust G-d to supply according to His riches in glory.

My vote
_____my riches ___x___G-d ‘s riches

His riches are so much better than mine.

What’s your vote? And does your life reflect it?

But is a very popular word. I hear it all the time around my house. When I ask one of my kids to do something they respond with BUT, which is followed by a long list of why they can’t do what was requested. But is usually followed by excuses.

But I can’t do that because____________
But can be a problem word in your life. If you use “but” too much with your spouse they may kick you in the butt. If you use “but” to much with your boss, when you ask for a raise, he may say “but.” If we use “but” with G-d He may use you as an illustration. (Remember Jonah)

However “but” doesn’t have to be a problem word. It can be a word of promise.

"As for you, you meant evil against me, but G-d meant it for good in order to bring about this present result, to preserve many people alive. Gen. 50:20

But G-d, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), Eph 2:4,5

But G-d demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8

But by the grace of G-d I am what I am, and His grace toward me did not prove vain; but I labored even more than all of them, yet not I, but the grace of God with me. 1 Cor 15:10

And looking at them Jesus said to them, "With people this is impossible, but with G-d all things are possible." Matt 19:26

I like it when G-d puts a but in the middle of my problem.

inside scoop

you know as i read the bible and the prophets of old i can really see G-ds character. It seems as if He always desired to give the inside scoop of what was about to happen.
If judgement was about to come He sent a prophet to warn the nation. for example - Jonah going to Nineveh. G-d could have just destroyed the nation, BUT His compassion said no! Jonah warned and Nineveh repented
Now, Jonah didn't understand why G-d would spare such a city. So G-d gave Jonah the inside scoop to bring understanding.
In the story of Amos G-d was sending all sorts of bad things to Israel. He gave Amos the inside scoop in which he returned prayer for Israel which saved Israel.
the inside scoop showed compassion, brought repentance, reveled understanding, provoked prayer.
pretty cool
