“And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus”—Philippians 4:19 (NIV).
During these trying times, people are panicking. They’re afraid. Afraid their needs, the necessary things for living, will not be available when they go to the store or order online.
I’ve experienced it. Most of us have. Stores have begun to ration what they do have in stock, especially toilet paper, hand sanitizer, and cleaning products. But shortages are being felt in other areas, including food.
Have we forgotten the provider of all our needs? With Him, there’s no need to panic. The God who parted the Red Sea so the Israelites could escape slavery is still a God of provision today.
