(Sunrise this morning that only God can deliver.)

But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. -Philippians 4:19
Amazon just ran across our freshly mowed front lawn and delivered a package to our door. (They never use the sidewalk.) We enjoy a brand of chewing gum that is expensive at retail outlets. I order my want from Amazon because I can get it thirty to forty percent cheaper. I touch a few buttons and in two days they deliver. It is few and far between that delivery is delayed or that Amazon cannot supply my want or need, but not always.
God is greater.
According to AMAZON.COM, Amazon operates more 175 fulfillment centers around the world in more than 150 million square feet of space. Its largest center is over one million square feet. Amazon employs 840,000 to meet the needs of its customers.
Our God is greater. He is our Supplier.
“But my God shall supply ALL YOUR NEED!” Amazon, as big as they are, cannot do that. All means all. Supply is the Greek word, plēroō, meaning: fulfil; fill; make full; to furnish liberally; to flood; to make complete in every particular; to render perfect; to carry through to the end; to accomplish; carry out; to bring to pass. Plēroō is from the word plērēs, meaning: filled up; covered in every part; nothing lacking; make replete; completely filled; to cram full, to furnish and finish a task, verify.
Our God is Jehovah Jireh, our Provider. He has the biggest fulfillment center. He can employ anyone at any time to come to our aid. He also has countless angels in His full-time employment on call 24/7. His resources are limitless and timeless. When we call on Him as our Supplier, He does not just fulfill our order, but he abundantly crams the box of need fuller than we could ever ask or expect. He perfects and completes the need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. He has all riches, all contacts, all resources, all healing, and all knowledge at His disposal. God has it all. He is all in all. “And He is before all things, and by him all things consist.” (Colossians 1:17) Amazon might have a lot, but they do not have it all.
Our God is greater! He is our supplier.
Got God? Got Supply! Got need? Need met.
I enCOURAGE you to turn to God in your need! Our God is Greater. He is much more reliable than Amazon. You trust Amazon to deliver and be on time. Trust God more. He will always deliver and be on time. It might not be in your time. Joyce Meyer says, “He is seldom in a hurry, but never late.” He wants to fulfill, perfect and complete whatever is lacking in your life. He is our SUPPLIER! TRUST HIM. He has and will continue to prove His faithfulness, over and over. He never fails. He will always deliver.
“You, Lord, are all I have, and you give me all I need; my future is in your hands.”-Psalm 16:5 GNT
