Day 21: God's Supply
And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. - Philippians 4:19
What a wonderful verse! God will provide the resources for every situation of lack and shortage. That is incredible. But before you start jumping up and down shouting with joy, you need to ask yourself, “Do I qualify for the benefits of Philippians 4:19?” There are many Christ-followers who know this verse but are not experiencing its benefit. Why? There is a context to which Philippians 4:19 is the conclusion.
Paul makes clear to the Philippians that God will supply their needs because they were a generous people. He tells them that “no church entered into partnership with him in giving and receiving” for the sake of the gospel. The Philippians gave generously to the cause of Christ and as a result Paul declared that God would provide the resources for every situation of lack and shortage. How about you? Are you giving generously to the cause of Christ?
During this 90 Day Challenge ask God to multiply many times over the tithe you are bringing to the ministry of Fellowship Church.
Read Philippians 4:15-20 which is the context for Philippians 4:19. Note how many times Paul references the act of giving and generosity on the part of the church at Philippi. Now take a good look at your generosity toward Fellowship Church and then reread Philippians 4:19.
