Philippians 4:19 – “And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” (NASB)
I love the fall season not because of the cooler weather, but because most of the new tool catalogs come out. Paging through one recently, I was looking at the tools that I would want to have - this one and that one. Then I began to look at the tools I needed but nothing stood out for I have been blessed. I began to think about today's verse that states God will supply all your needs, Needs… not all my wants as there's a big difference. I began to think of the difference between needs and wants. What could I really live without, and what do I really need to live. It's amazing when you sit down and take a good look at the difference. I must be honest; there have been times when I prayed for wants. I'm sure we all have, and I am sure we have prayed for needs as well. The difference is one we can live without and the other we can't. Need versus want -something to think about as we face each day. Maybe God is giving us what we need instead of what we want, and I think He knows best! What about you?
