Topic: The Impact of Giving and Receiving On The Giver
Philippians 4:19 19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
In the past two devotionals, we discussed the impact of giving and receiving on the receiver and on God. Today we will see the impact of giving and receiving on the third party involved - the Giver. In the case of Paul and the Philippians, Paul assured the givers that God would supply all their need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
The Philippians qualified to receive blessings from God because they gave gifts to the apostle Paul. It is wrong to claim the blessings of Philippians 4:19 if you are not a giver. Givers are blessed with riches. God's riches are ageless and inexhaustible (Psalm 24:1-2). God had riches before you had needs. Meeting your need is therefore not a problem for Him (2 Corinthians 9:8).
God works through givers. The Philippians had needs yet God used them to give to the apostle Paul (2 Corinthians 8:1-5). God can use you to accomplish tasks beyond your strength when you are a giver. Finally, the all sufficient God supplies all the needs of the giver. The Philippians gave to Paul, and God satisfied their need. Your supply is around the corner.
Prayer Assignment: 1. Pray for the grace to be a giver.
Scripture Reading: 2 Corinthians 9:7-10
