God's Lifetime Warranties

One of God’s “lifetime warranties” to you and all believers: God will meet all your needs

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

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.

The title for this month’s devotional, “God’s Lifetime Warranties”, refers to the peace and joy available to all Christ-followers.

As you well know, there are very few businesses that offer a lifetime warranty. Even if you find one that does, there is no guarantee that the company will not go out of business, which would leave all their promised warranties worthless. But whenever you get a warranty, it gives a sense of peace about your purchase, at least for the length of the warranty.

A couple of years ago, my home air conditioner stopped working. I called a company run by a Christian. They told me it would make more sense to put in a new unit rather than try to replace the expensive part that malfunctioned. Their next statement that the new unit had a 10-year parts and labor warranty convinced me to buy it. When I think about it, that 10-year warranty still gives me joy and peace.

For Christ-followers that have a solid belief in the Bible as God’s word, joy and peace should fill our lives. The Bible describes the “lifetime warranties” that God guarantees to anyone who trusts Jesus as their savior and walks in obedience to Him. The writer of Hebrews put it this way:

God also bound Himself with an oath, so that those who received the promise could be perfectly sure that He would never change His mind. So, God has given both His promise and His oath. These two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for God to lie. Therefore, we who have fled to Him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us. This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain into God’s inner sanctuary. (Hebrews 6:17-19 NLT)

Note that it is impossible for God to lie; therefore, when we put our hope in His “lifetime warranties”, then they become an anchor for our lives.

The first “lifetime warranty” we must grasp and anchor to is that God meets all our needs! But we must have a good understanding of what our real needs are.

If you believe that you have a need that God has not met, it means one of two things. It may mean that God’s perfect timing to meet that need has yet to come. Or it may mean that your need is really a want, and that God sees it may even be bad for you.

Rest assured, let this “lifetime warranty” fill you with joy and peace because you can trust that our Key Verse for today is truth!

Father, I know that You never lie and that I can trust Your promises! Thank You for meeting all my needs, past, present, and future. In Jesus’s Name I pray, amen.
