But my God shall supply all your needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:19)
The way some people live, you’d think what the spirit of God said through the Apostle Paul is, “My God shall supply all your needs according to how much you’re paid at your place of work”. You job ceased to be the source of income for you the day you were born again. Now God supplies all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19).
If you look at the sun you will not see the shadows. In the same way, when you put your trust in God, you will stop chasing shadows. Stop seeing your job or your business as your source of income; God is your source.
The forces of nature will come against you and try to force you to believe that your job or business is your source of income, but reject the notion with absolute vehemence. The Bible didn’t say “Work so you can have money”. Rather, it says the reason God wants you to work is so that you “may have to give to him that needeth” (Ephesians 4:28). You job is a medium or channel through which you bless others, and in so doing, you also are rewarded. Giving is God’s established medium to prosper you financially; never forget it.
So it doesn’t matter how much you’re paid at your job or business, never take it as your source of income. Now, the fact that God, rather than your job, is your source doesn’t mean you shouldn’t handle your job well. Do your job with excellence and shun mediocrity, and the Lord will promote you.
