"God The Provider"

Who shall tell our untold need,
   Deeply felt, though scarely known!
Who the hungering soul can feed,
   Guard, and guide, but God alone?
Blessed promise! while we see
Earthly friends must powerless be,
Earthly fountains quickly dry:
God shall
all your need supply.

He hath said it-- so we know
   Nothing less can we receive.
Oh that thankful love may glow
   While we restfully believe--
Ask not how, but trust Him still;
Ask not when, but wait
His will:
Simply on His word rely,
God shall
all your need supply.

Through the whole of life's long way,
   Outward, inward need we trace;
Need arising day by day,
   Patience, wisdom, strength, and grace.
Needing Jesus most of all,
Full of need, on Him we call;
Then how gracious His reply,
God shall
all your need supply!

Great our need, but greater far
   Is our Father's loving power;
He upholds each mighty star,
   He unfolds each tiny flower.
He who numbers every hair,
Earnest of His faithful care,
Gave His Son for us to die;
God shall all
your need supply.

Yet we often
vainly plead
   For a fancied good denied,
we deemed a pressing need
   Still remaining unsupplied.
Yet from dangers all concealed,
Thus our wisest Friend doth shield;
good thing will He deny,
God shall all your
need supply.

Can we count redemption's teasure,
   Scan the glory of God's love?
Such shall be the boundless measure
   Of His blessings from above.
All we ask or think, and more,
He will give in bounteous store,
He can fill and satisfy,
God shall all your need supply.

One, the channel, deep and broad,
   From the Fountain of the Throne,
Christ the Saviour, Son of God,
   Blessings flow through Him alone.
He, the Faithful and the True,
Brings us mercies ever new:
Till we reach His home on high,
"God shall all your need supply."

A Little Note from Cobblestone Road Ministries:

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

Notice that it is our "need" which God shall supply. There are
people who write to our ministry asking for prayer for things that
are clearly carnal "wants" and not truly "needs." Yet the bible is
specific that we must pray according to the Father's will, not our own.
A Christian's heart desire must be to do the Father's will. The bible says:

Psalm 37:4 
Delight thyself also in the LORD; and
he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

One man emailed us a strange request, asking that we would agree
with him in prayer for a "beautiful, sexy wife." Such requests
are clearly not according to God's will. That may be
his desire
but if he would just pray for a "good godly wife", then once in
love with her, he would see her as beautiful to him. If he would
have read Proverbs 31:30, he would know that,
"Favor is deceitful,
and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall
be praised."
God does grant the desires of our heart but our heart must
be to do His will. Having the mind of Christ in pleasing the Father. And
when we pray according to the Father's will, He heareth us.

1Jn 5:14 
And this is the confidence that we have in him, that,
if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:

The Lord provides! He provides for His own children. Those who
have placed their trust in Him need not fear tomorrow. God will
provide for all of our need; and will even give us the desires of
our heart,
if they are in accordance with His will. He knows what
is best for us and will
never grant us things that will make us
forget to rely upon Him. He provides. Let us always remember this;
and give Him the thanks and praise for who He is and all that He does!

The Lord Jesus said in Luke 12:23-28:
The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment.
Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither
have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more
are ye better than the fowls? And which of you with taking thought
can add to his stature one cubit? If ye then be not able to do that
thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest? Consider the
lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto
you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
If then God so clothe the grass, which is today in the field, and
tomorrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he
clothe you, O ye of little faith?
