The Bible is full of God’s promises to His people. He finally does so around the time of Ezra and Nehemiah, who led the people in rebuilding the temple and city walls. Paul says according to his riches, not out of His riches, not off the top. If He is to supply our needs “according to His riches in glory,” they will be supplied to the full. So wonderful is the truth of v19 that Paul cannot refrain from breaking forth with a doxology of praise in the next verse. Accordingly, I will argue that the Church is now God’s people and inherits the ultimate fulfillment of the promises made to Israel in Christ Jesus - that is forgiveness of sins, an eternal home in heaven, and victory over the bondage of sin. He’s never too busy to be concerned about what concerns you. Amen. But a treasure far greater is mine; It is enough to know that they with us are partakers of Paul's Humility. The sole condition is. So let’s look at the verse again. All rights reserved). Listen again to the whole of Philippians 4:19. Take a look at the list of Jeremiah 33 promises again. Dwight Pentecost offers an important caveat writing that "The promise that, “My God shall supply all your need.” presupposes obedience. They’ve got plenty of stories to prove the point. The same God who helped Elisha retrieve the borrowed ax head (2Ki 6:5, 6, 7), who supplied food for a faithful widow (1Ki 17:8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16), and who provided wine at a small-town wedding (Jn 2:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9,10) meets our needs as well. --Philippians 4:19, PHILIPPIANS 4:19 - Pastor Harold Springstead was driving along, on his way to preach at a little country church, when he felt a sudden vibration. –J D Branon (Our Daily Bread, Copyright RBC Ministries, Grand Rapids, MI. Epaphroditus had brought a sweet savour of Philippi unto Rome, now this letter carries the fragrance of Roman Christianity to Philippi. Nor indeed could the term be used in any sense for supply of want-grace being the word more usually employed. It is true that χρεία is used of bodily need in the context, and this is generally its sense in the classics; and no wonder, for the heathen could scarcely know of any other. not the creation of the body.

But Homer spoke of wealth which made it possible for one to live without working. 11:24-25: One man gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty. To claim the fulfillment of the promise without giving obedience to God is presumptuous. But we must not remain babies.

That which fills an ocean will fill a bucket; that which will fill a gallon will fill a pint; those revenues which will defray an emperor’s expenses are enough for a beggar or poor man.” Didn’t Paul say, “My God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus” (Phil.
