And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus. – Philippians 4:19 NIV
Let us intercede by praying that God will meet all your needs.
- for patient submission and hope when we are belittled;
- for humility and a heavenly mind when exalted. It is a special gift to have an equal temper of mind always;
- in a low state not to lose our comfort and trust in God, His providence, nor take any wrong actions to our own benefit;
- in a prosperous condition not to be arrogant, proud, or secure, or worldly. This is a harder lesson than the other; for the temptations of fulness and prosperity are more than those of affliction and want.
Let use encourage kindness as will meet a glorious reward hereafter. Through Christ, we have the grace to do what is good, and through Him, we must expect the reward. We have all things by Christ, let us do all things for him, and to his glory.
