The All-Embracing Promises of God

God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory, – in Christ Jesus. Philippines 4:19

Marvellous Scriptures
So seek first His kingdom and His righteousness and all these things will be added to you. Matthew 6:33; He who did not spare his own Son but gave Him up for us all, how will He not also with Him graciously give us all things? Romans 8:32  So let no one boast in men. For all things are yours, all are yours, and you are Christ’s – and Christ is God’s. 1 Corinthians 3:21-23. As sorrowful, yet always rejoicing. As poor, yet making many rich. As having nothing, yet possessing all things. 2 Corinthians 6:10. As for the rich in this present age, charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly provides us with all things to enjoy. 1Timothy 6:17

Superlative Phrase
Oh, what marvellous scriptures. “All Things !” “ALL Things ! !” ‘ALL THINGS ! ! !”  This superlative little phrase “all things” recurs in Scripture. It is not one thing or some things or many things or most things. He gives us ALL things and it is done for us to richly enjoy. And lest we missed the first and second mention of “ALL”, He sprinkles that little word throughout Scripture – in so many precious promises.

Guaranteed  Assurance
What special reassurance this is to you as it is to me! What satisfying assurance He bestows on us in these – “All Things”. What wonderful confidence He confers on us in these – “All Things”. What a great guarantee He gives Us with His remarkable – “All THINGS !”  Nothing is overlooked and nothing is excluded in the Father provision for His children. Therefore, as His children, we shall want for nothing.

Pledge of Provision
God’s pledge to provide all.. and touches all temporal as well as spiritual things. His assurance is first to provide all physical and bodily needs.. and too many of us look at the overwhelming circumstances in our teetering lives. Too many of us become anxious as the ominous future looms ahead. We have just enough for today but tomorrows’ advancing shadows haunt us, and we become troubled in our hearts and sick in our soul – lest tomorrow’s bowl of meal becomes empty – and tomorrows cruise of oil runs dry. But He tells us if we seek Him and His kingdom and live righteously before Him. He will supply all things needful and all essential things will be added to us. He will better provide for His children than for lilies and sparrows! He will ensure the daily necessities of life will be added and poured into our lap. If God’s promises are sure, then no circumstances can displace His assurances. If God’s Word is true, then no action or governmental law can overthrow His oath.

Word of Promise
His proof and guarantee that His Word and promises and provision is sure.. is the gift of His Beloved Son in Whom He is well pleased – so that we can be made adoptive sons, whom He also loves and loves so dearly! If so great a gift is forthcoming from the Father, He will not withhold the smaller gifts that are needed for our daily survival. Ours is not to worry, but to trust in His loving provision. His is to carry out His never-failing promises and His vow to you. Whether we have a little or a lot – He will provide enough.

Example of Old
As Joshua was told:-
Only be thou strong and very courageous..
For I have commanded thee.
Be not afraid, Be not dismayed,
Thou shalt have victory,
I will be with thee what’eer betide:-
Captain and Leader, Friend and Guide cf. Joshua 1:7

Nothing can prevent our Lord from carrying out His plans and purposes. Our living Lord has jurisdiction and sway over both men and nations. It is His power and authority that governs both times and tides. It is our Father Who rules and regulates the days, the seasons, and the harvests. It is He Who has supremacy over the spinning globe and the mighty universe. Shall He not so much more care for you.. who are His blood-bought possession?

Faithful God
But is it possible to trust Him in ALL things to provide ALL things? Well, I wonder if you have been placed in a position where you entrusted your three young children to a steward on a four-hour sea journey with a promise to them, that on their return they would be taken to their new home and yet in your trembling heart you knew only too well that no such place existed? I have. And as I turned to face the stark reality that I had five days to achieve this… less than a week to fulfil this enormous task. I searched for vacancies in basements and attics. I searched for a tiny crumb of comfort. I searched for a place to rest the heads of my children – now on holiday with grandparents in England.

Never-Failing God
Christ had nowhere to place His head and maybe in a way, I began to understand just a fraction of what that meant. But would I have to follow in His poverty-stricken footsteps even here – as each ‘pushed-on’ door continued to be slammed in my face. My faith was weak and my heart was crying and my courage was far from valiant! And encouraging phone calls came from my mother – that “He would provide…” Inspiring support from one who had also trodden this homeless way before me. Yet I almost despaired that God’s promise included me as well. But as I searched amidst an almost empty vacancy list. Each tiny apartment was withdrawn from my grasp and the search continued. And yet years before God had gone ahead and selected my future abode.. a veritable palatial place –  indeed a palace! And as I came to the extremity of my need.. so He provided the “all” that I needed – pressed down and running over.

God of Surprises
Our God is a God of surprises Who never mirrors His miracle or provision. Sometimes He feeds through manna and sometimes via the ravens. Sometimes He provides the meal that does not diminish and the oil that doesn’t run dry. Sometimes He causes the axe-head to swim or the rock to gush water. Sometimes He speaks through a donkey or by means of the rustling in the treetops. Sometimes it’s the touch on the hem of His garment, or a dip in a river. Sometimes He divides the waters and other times sends the angel of death.. but always He provides all things needful. Sometimes He provides a Cave of Adullum; sometimes He provides a stable, with a feeding trough and an armful of hay. But each time He provides, we discover Him to be a God of surprises – and each time He provides is just one more confirmation that His Word is true.

Individual God
Remember, my miracle is for me – but He has His miracle for you. I have been young, and now am old, yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his descendants begging bread. Psalm 37:25. He will not fail nor forsake you. Hebrews 13:5.  He that has kept Israel together as a nation for 2000 years.. will He surely provide all the needs,  for each beloved child of God according to His riches in glory?

All-Sufficient God
For God is able to make all grace abound to YOU, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work. 2 Corinthians 9 God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory, in Christ Jesus.. Philippians 4:19. So seek first His kingdom and His righteousness and all these things will be added unto you.. Matt.6:33  These are just some of the ALL-embracing promises of God – to you.

James 1

2 Corinthians 9


James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.

My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;

Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.

But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.

For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.

A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted:

10 But the rich, in that he is made low: because as the flower of the grass he shall pass away.

11 For the sun is no sooner risen with a burning heat, but it withereth the grass, and the flower thereof falleth, and the grace of the fashion of it perisheth: so also shall the rich man fade away in his ways.

12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.

13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:

14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.

15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

16 Do not err, my beloved brethren.

17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

18 Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.

19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:

20 For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.

21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.

22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:

24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.

25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

26 If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain.

27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

2 Corinthians 9

For as touching the ministering to the saints, it is superfluous for me to write to you:

For I know the forwardness of your mind, for which I boast of you to them of Macedonia, that Achaia was ready a year ago; and your zeal hath provoked very many.

Yet have I sent the brethren, lest our boasting of you should be in vain in this behalf; that, as I said, ye may be ready:

Lest haply if they of Macedonia come with me, and find you unprepared, we (that we say not, ye) should be ashamed in this same confident boasting.

Therefore I thought it necessary to exhort the brethren, that they would go before unto you, and make up beforehand your bounty, whereof ye had notice before, that the same might be ready, as a matter of bounty, and not as of covetousness.

But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.

Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.

And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:

(As it is written, He hath dispersed abroad; he hath given to the poor: his righteousness remaineth for ever.

10 Now he that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness;)

11 Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causeth through us thanksgiving to God.

12 For the administration of this service not only supplieth the want of the saints, but is abundant also by many thanksgivings unto God;

13 Whiles by the experiment of this ministration they glorify God for your professed subjection unto the gospel of Christ, and for your liberal distribution unto them, and unto all men;

14 And by their prayer for you, which long after you for the exceeding grace of God in you.

15 Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.

Psalm 1

Psalm 23

Psalm 144


Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.

Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

Psalm 23

23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

Psalm 144

144 Blessed be the Lord my strength which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight:

My goodness, and my fortress; my high tower, and my deliverer; my shield, and he in whom I trust; who subdueth my people under me.

Lord, what is man, that thou takest knowledge of him! or the son of man, that thou makest account of him!

Man is like to vanity: his days are as a shadow that passeth away.

Bow thy heavens, O Lord, and come down: touch the mountains, and they shall smoke.

Cast forth lightning, and scatter them: shoot out thine arrows, and destroy them.

Send thine hand from above; rid me, and deliver me out of great waters, from the hand of strange children;

Whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood.

I will sing a new song unto thee, O God: upon a psaltery and an instrument of ten strings will I sing praises unto thee.

10 It is he that giveth salvation unto kings: who delivereth David his servant from the hurtful sword.

11 Rid me, and deliver me from the hand of strange children, whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood:

12 That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; that our daughters may be as corner stones, polished after the similitude of a palace:

13 That our garners may be full, affording all manner of store: that our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our streets:

14 That our oxen may be strong to labour; that there be no breaking in, nor going out; that there be no complaining in our streets.

15 Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the Lord.
