God's Work Done In God's Way Will Never Lack God's Supplies."


Hudson Taylor's journey as a British missionary in 19th-century China is a testament to the power of faith and obedience to God's will. His famous quote, "God's work done in God's way will never lack God's supplies," is rooted in the Biblical truth of divine provision and guidance. Philippians 4:19 says, "And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus," reflecting Taylor's belief in God's unwavering support for those committed to His work.

Hudson Taylor's approach to missionary work was not just about spreading The Gospel but doing so in a manner that was aligned with God's principles. This is reminiscent of Proverbs 3:5-6, which urges us to "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight." Taylor's conviction was that understanding and adapting to the culture of the Chinese people was part of submitting to God's way, as seen in 1 Corinthians 9:22-23: "I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some."

Taylor also emphasized the importance of relying on physical resources and God's wisdom and strength. James 1:5 encourages this reliance: "If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you." This Scripture echoes Taylor's belief in seeking God's guidance in all aspects of ministry.

Moreover, 2 Corinthians 9:8 assures us, "And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work." This aligns perfectly with Taylor's conviction that God's work, done in His way, would never lack His supply.

John 15:4-5 also plays a crucial role in understanding our dependency on God: "Remain in me, as I also remain in you... apart from me, you can do nothing." This Scripture highlights the essence of Hudson Taylor's message - our efforts in evangelism and ministry are fruitful only when they are rooted in Christ.


In closing, Hudson Taylor's life and his profound statement, "God's work done in God's way will never lack God's supplies," resonate deeply with the Christian calling. This is not just about doing God's work but doing it in a way that aligns with His will and relies on His provision. As Matthew 6:33 reminds us, "But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well." Let us take inspiration from Hudson Taylor's life, trusting that when we engage in God's work in His way, He will provide all that we need materially and Spiritually.
