"And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus."
~ Philippians 4:19 NIV
A lot of people got it all wrong.
A lot of "pastors" are spreading numerous lies about Christianity.
One of those is that if you're truly obeying God, you'll be loaded.
Paul obeyed God, yet he worked as a tent maker to make ends meet at times.
John the Baptist obeyed God, yet he lived in the wilderness, and his food wasn't exactly luxurious (not to mention he wasn't exactly fashionable).
Jesus Himself didn't have a spot to lay His head, yet who's going to argue that He didn't obey God?
Notice in the verse above (and there are more in the Bible that echo the same thought) that Paul tells us God will meet all our needs. Does it say anything in there about getting our wants too?
God promises to provide food. He doesn't promise the latest iPhone.
God promises shelter. He doesn't promise a beach-front mansion.
God promises clothing. He doesn't promise Lucky Brand jeans.
God provides all of our needs, and many of our wants if we're honest. But you can't measure obedience by wealth. You can only measure obedience by God's Word.
