Lightbulb Moment

"And my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus." - Philippians 4:19

I realised today that I've always taken this verse to mean that God will provide for me based on an American standard of living, where wants are often mistaken for needs and comfort is an inalienable right.

How absolutely foolish I've been. I've been angry at God more than once because He didn't provide in the way that I thought He should, in the way that He was "supposed" to (notice the focus on the word "I"). Just when I think I'm getting somewhere I realise what an idiot I am at times.
