And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus. [Philippians 4:19 (NLT)]
Since God will take care of our every need, can you picture his heavenly warehouse? No small stock room in the back of a store, God’s warehouse would be gigantic and extend further than the eye could see. Unlike Amazon’s, it wouldn’t be filled with sports equipment, electronics, clothing or books. Instead, there would be crates of courage and wisdom, shelves piled high with love and kindness, and bins of patience and forgiveness. Perhaps the angels would be in charge of shipping and receiving. They’d bar code and inventory items as they moved in and out of heaven and nothing would ever get lost or misplaced. Of course, your prayers would first be reviewed by God before going to customer service where they’d be processed twenty-four/seven and then sent over to the warehouse for order fulfillment. Can you imagine an angel driving a fork truck around to various locations to remove an extra-large box of faith, a package of humility, or a crate of joy especially ordered just for you? Amazingly enough, unlike Amazon, God’s warehouse never runs out of anything and the spiritual needs of those in Jesus Christ will always be filled. Nothing is ever put on back-order, shoddy substitutions are never offered, and everything is exactly the right color and size. Moreover, no matter how much you’ve ordered, shipping is always free and on-time delivery is guaranteed!
Thank you God for always providing exactly what I need at the moment I need it.
