I Have a God

 Phil 4:19 “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”

Every person has an invisible sign around their necks that says, ‘I have a need.’ 

You have a need, but I have a God. 

We are not in this to lose. I have a God and with His riches in glory, He can supply your need. 

Pentecost was the day of the early church’s beginning. There was a transformation. Human spirits were replaced by God’s Spirit. We have something to give, more than money, more than physical help, we have something supernatural to give. 

In God’s Kingdom, supply and demand are never out of whack. There is always more than enough supply. He has infinite ability to provide. No matter what the situation, God has what you need. 

Believe in the Bible for you, not just for everybody else. There is nothing too hard for our Lord. God enjoys that feeling we have when we feel it is impossible and hopeless. He enjoys the opportunity to ‘wow’ you with His victory. If you’ll open the door for Him, it pleases Him. 

God doesn’t enjoy your pain, He wants you to ask for His help in your situations. Ask Him. Say, ‘I have a need only You can provide.’ It’s a faith thing and it pleases Him when you trust Him. 

Our God is more than enough. He is never without an option. He is never in checkmate. If you have a sinful record, a mess, an impossible situation, God can supply for you! 

God cannot lie and He makes good on His Word. Don’t let go of His Word. Even if it wasn’t true before He spoke it, when He speaks it, it is now true. 

God has an answer to death, fear, alcohol, drugs, pornography, depression. God can supply and will supply. 

God is able.

Sometimes, people ask stupid questions like, ‘Can God make a rock too heavy for Him to lift?’ That’s a stupid question. There are things He can’t do, such as lie. 

Num 23:19 “God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?” 

Heb 6:17 “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.”

If God has said it, you can trust Him to do it. 

There is no situation without a solution. It may not look the way you think it should look, but God still has a solution. 

Disease, strokes, because of bad things happening, we learn a way of thinking that is not of God. We get this Charlie Brown way of thinking, it only rains on him, but if anything bad could happen, it probably will. The thinking is there is no victory for me. 

This isn’t in the Bible, your mind needs to be reprogrammed to think the way God wants you to think. He will provide. He is a Hero. He is the ultimate.

Psalm 104:1-4 “Bless the Lord, O my soul. O Lord my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty. 2 Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain: 3 Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind: 4 Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire:”

God covers Himself in light. He’s all good. As you approach Him, it’s out of darkness into light. Those things that mess you up are from darkness, He is light. He is a God who is able. He is a God who can fix your marriage, your relationships. 

Satan is a liar. Lying is of the devil. Lying is bad, but if you believe the lie and repeat the lie and start to think like that lie, you are operating under the direction of the devil. 

Instead of telling God how big your mountain is, tell your mountain how big your God is. Faith! 

Sometimes bad things happen that mess with your faith. ‘I deserve this bad thing that’s happening…’ Although God has healed others, He isn’t going to heal me. You may feel like you don’t deserve something and that may be true, but God loves you. Think His way. Faith! 

God never said, “Pray to Me and I will move the mountain. I said, ‘Speak to the mountain and it will be moved.’” 

Our pastor had ulcerative colitis for two years. There was a woman who suffered for twelve years in Scripture. Then, she touched Jesus’ clothes and was healed. I have a God! 

Build your faith. Trust God and think His way. He is the Way. He is Truth. He is Life. There is nothing too hard for Him. There is no marital situation that is too hard for Him. God can take your past and rewrite your future. Your legacy can be altered. You can be altered. He is a God who transforms lives.  

More Questions for Personal or Group Study:

  1. What is one miracle story you’ve either heard or experienced recently? 
  2. What does the statement, ‘I have a God’ mean to you? How does this change you?
  3. Read 1 Kings 17:8-24. What miracles occurred in this account? What did Elijah do? What did the widow do? What did God do? How were their lives changed?
  4. What struggles do you have in trusting God? How will you challenge that way of thinking and seek God’s will and way for your life no matter what your circumstances?
