God Will Provide ‘All Things’ You Need

‘Will He not also with Him freely give us all things?’ Romans 8:32 NASB

The Bible says, ‘He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things?’

Author Max Lucado gives this analogy: ‘Suppose a man comes upon a child being beaten by thugs. He dashes into the mob, rescues the boy, and carries him to a hospital. The youngster is nursed to health. The man pays for the child’s treatment. He learns that the child is an orphan and adopts him as his own and gives the boy his name. Then one night, months later, the father hears the son sobbing into his pillow. He goes to him and asks about the tears. “I’m worried, Daddy… about tomorrow. Where will I get food to eat? How am I going to buy clothes to stay warm? And where will I sleep?” The father is rightfully troubled. “Haven’t I shown you? Don’t you understand? I risked my life to save you. I gave my money to treat you. You wear my name. I’ve called you my son. Would I do all that and then not meet your needs?” Honestly, now. Did God save you so you would fret? Would He teach you to walk just to watch you fall? Would He be nailed to the cross for your sins and then disregard your prayers? Come on! Is Scripture teasing us when it says, “He has put His angels in charge of you to watch over you wherever you go”? (Psalm 91:11 NCV)’

You know better, don’t you? So stop worrying, and stand securely on His promise that He will ‘freely give us all things’ you need
