God's Lifetime Warranties

When you make a request of God, learn to trust that He really knows what is good for you

God’s Lifetime Warranties
You Will Never Have a Need – Part VI

Scripture Reading: Philippians 4:10-20

Key Verse: Philippians 4:19 NLT
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.

Continuing from yesterday’s devotional, our transformation into a new person in Christ begins when we give God permission to work in us. As we obey God’s instructions to us, we learn to know what God’s will is in our lives:

Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. (Romans 12:2 NLT)

Our instructions from God do not come in an audible voice, but rather from the Holy Spirit by inner impressions in our minds. At times, we may be listening to a sermon or talking to a mature Christ-follower, and God uses these situations to give us instructions. Do not worry about missing what God wants you to know… God promises to give us all the wisdom that we need:

If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and He will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking. (James 1:5 NLT)

Due to our inherent human nature, it is essential to offer our bodies to the Lord each day, allowing Him to perform His transformative work. This has become part of my morning prayers, giving God permission to work in and through me that day.

The Apostle Paul said it this way:

And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all He has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind He will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship Him. (Romans 12:1 NLT)

This verse is a win-win kind of prayer. God wins by moving us fully toward His service. We win because we learn to know what pleases God and what fits into His will.

In these last six devotionals we have studied this “lifetime warranty” from God to us: we will never have a need that goes unmet. As we trust this promise, we can rejoice in the Lord, no matter what our circumstances are at any given moment.

I remind myself of this “lifetime warranty” with these statements: “If I need it, I will have it. If I do not have it, I did not really need it.

We are sometimes disappointed when we do not get what we ask for, but we can rest assured that our God knows best and gives the best to us! The Bible tells us that God loves to give good gifts to His children, and we must learn to trust that only He really knows what is good for us.

Father, I trust Your promises and will rest on Your answers. In Jesus’s Name, amen.
