The main reason I write worship songs like Everything I’ll Ever Need is to be a blessing and resource for the Christian church. As I ponder about the song Everything I’ll Ever Need here are some answers to questions that hopefully share the song’s story.
The main premise of this song is this. It is God who provides everything in our life based on need. No matter what our circumstances God provides for our every need. It is important to acknowledge that God is in control of the universe and every aspect of our lives.
There is a big difference between need and want. When we need something is is vital to our existence. We need things like food, water, air. We need clothing and shelter. We need to have fellowship with God and others. Without these thing we would perish. On the other hand want come from our desires. These wants can be based on either good or bad intentions.
The problem is this. It is easy to look around and feel left out or feeling that you don’t have enough. We can experience the feeling of lack or loss of something. Also we can see others with more or the feeling of emptiness.
What I hope to convey in the song is, there is assurance that God provides everything in life. The act of worship acknowledges that God provides everything we could ever need. The answer can be found in through understanding the gift of God’s grace and providence. The point is, as long as we dwell in God’s presence we will lack nothing in life according to His will.
In the morning I open my eyes And I see a brand new day With the beauty of a new sunrise Painted across the sky I am so blessed, that a smile forms on my face I realize that it is God who gives me grace I thank you Lord. Everything I'll ever need Comes from God the Mighty King For He gives to me oh So lavishly Everything I'll ever need In the evening I lay down my head And I think about my day I'm Reminded of my daily bread And I bow my head to pray I am alive saved through Jesus blood As I realize that it's You who gives me breath To praise you Lord Everything I'll ever need Comes from God the Mighty King For You give to me oh So lavishly Everything I'll ever need You span the universe And all it contains Your love flows endlessly According to Your grace You span the universe And all it contains Your love flows endlessly According to Your grace According to Your grace Everything I'll ever need Comes from God the Mighty King For You give to me oh So lavishly Everything I'll ever need Everything I'll ever need Comes from God the Mighty King For You give to me oh So lavishly Everything I'll ever need
What inspired the song Everything I’ll Ever Need?
The song Everything I’ll Ever Need is inspired by a combination of several bible verses. Here are ones that stand out in regards to the song itself
And my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in the glory of Christ JesusPhilippians 4:19
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.Psalm 23:1
The earth is the Lord’s and all its fullness.1 Corinthians 10:26
For your Father know the things you have need of before you ask Him.Matthew 6:8
But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that.1 Timothy 6:6-8
What message would you like people to take from the song Praise and Honor?
The one thing that I hope the song will convey is that God provides. One of God’ attributes is spoken of by his name “Jehovah Jireh”. Which literally means “the Lord will provide“. One other idea the song shows is to show appreciation for the simple things in life. Things like a sunrise or that we have breath. However, the most important things is the amazing gift of salvation. For this any many other things God preforms should put the worshipper in a state of appreciation.
