One of the first verses I learned when I first came to a Way Ministry fellowship was Philippians 4:19: “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”
A couple of years ago, my daughter moved to California to accept her first job. We had begun looking for housing before her move, but were told over and over again that you had to be there because they got rented so quickly. We had one week to find an apartment and get her settled. This was not an ideal way. This was an opportunity to believe God.
With the “I Can Do” attitude, we headed west. It was amazing to see how God supplied the need. As a family we were of one mind, determined to see the victory, and continued thanking God. We found the perfect apartment after four days.
Our next believing adventure was to furnish it. We found quality items at excellent prices. One thrift store was having an extra 40 percent off sale the day we purchased a Crate & Barrel table. We went to another store and found chairs that matched it perfectly. As we were driving down the street, a business had a sign taped on a bookshelf on their sidewalk—FREE. A marble lamp we purchased was the exact color of the marble top of her roommate’s table. One of her coworkers gave her a shelving unit that was a perfect match to the dining room table and chairs. Everything she needed to have in order to be settled into her new home was supplied. We got to see how God supplied her need. She could be reminded of how our heavenly Father takes care of us every time she looked around her apartment.
I’m so thankful we were able to have this verse, Philippians 4:19, cemented in our minds. It was truly a time of bonding as a family. We took a stand together on God’s Word and saw the victory. It is through this ministry that we have learned to trust God and believe that He will supply our need.
