And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Philipians 4:19
This is a very well known passage of scripture. It has used to minister to anybody with a need. However, the context this scripture was written reveals that the Apostle Paul had a specific group of people in mind. The letter to the church at Philipi was written specifically to them because they were Paul’s partners in the preaching of the gospel. They were partners in prayer (Phil 1:19), encouragement (Phil 2:15) and also in giving.
And you Philippians yourselves well know that in the early days of the Gospel ministry, when I left Macedonia, no church (assembly) entered into partnership with me andopened up [a debit and credit] account in giving and receiving except you only. Philipians 4:15 AMP
This church entered into a partnership with the Apostle Paul and he describes it as opening a debit and credit account which depicts giving and receiving. Throughout the whole bible there’s a multitude of scriptures that promise givers a harvest and once again this principle is confirmed in the book of philipians. Givers and especially partners in the gospel always have their needs supernaturally met by God.
In Matthew 10 we see Jesus sending out his disciples for ministry into the jewish world. Amongst the instructions he tells them not to take any gold, silver and change of clothes. First of all they had to have some gold, silver and clothes to talk about yet the master commands them to leave it behind.
