“And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19, NASB95)
When we first moved to Boise our salary was cut by two thirds in the first year. I put in my resume at several places, but no one responded. I was faced with the problems of caring for a family of four, a church that was just starting, and being separated 500 miles from friends and family. At that time we learned to depend upon God for everything. In retrospect, I would not trade our experiences for anything, for they taught us how to trust in God in every circumstance.
It’s been said that we don’t know that Jesus is all we need until Jesus is all we have. When we come to the end of our own resources, and have nowhere else to turn, that’s when we discover the infinite resources of God!
