God supplies my every need (Phil 4:19)

"And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus." - Philippians 4:19

I have a friend who strongly feels we should give big gifts. His argument is that the Lord has all the money in the world. This may apply, as I assume this verse does refer to money amongst other things...

In addition I'm thinking of joy, satisfaction, love, etc...

I read a thing today about Larry Crabb arguing that believer's are confused when they think the life of the believer is better than the life of the non believer without the promise of heaven. I completely disagree.

I believe the Lord has supplied me with a hope, a joy, a freedom, and an understanding in life that I could never have apart from Him. I've been fearful, sinful, boastful, and weak. Now I'm brave, saved, more and more humble, and stronger every day because the Lord.

Everyday I live a life of more satisfaction than any of my non-believing friends. I do believe that sin satisfies, but only for a very short time. I believe listening to the one who created us and His guidance helps us understand how to really live. I believe that He gives, and He gives, and He gives.

Because I have received. The God I worship is worth living for today, not just for the promise of heaven. His riches (be it money, or joy, or salvation, or hope) are worth far more than anything else I can fathom. And I can testify He gives generously.
