Philippians 4:15-17 (AMP)
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 and opened up [a debit and credit] account in giving and receiving except you only. For even in Thessalonica you sent [me contributions] for my needs, not only once but a second time. Not that I seek or am eager for [your] gift, but I do seek and am eager for the fruit which increases to your credit [the harvest of blessing that is accumulating to your account].
What’s in your account? Have you checked you balance lately? Do you keep an accurate register of all withdraws and all deposits?
Paul was talking to the saints in Philippi about giving and receiving. Now we know, Paul was speaking expressly concerning natural financial giving and receiving but I believe there is a dual meaning here, spiritual and natural. The Philippian church partnered with Paul and supported him financially yet they reaped from God’s supernatural store house in the spirit realm. For Paul let them know that God would supply all their needs according to His riches in glory. So we see here that even though these Christian’s were giving something of natural origin, such as money, their harvest originated from a spiritual source, God. They were working a spiritual principal set for by God. Whenever you obey God and take Him at His word you are in for a great blessing. God takes notice when we obey His Word. He will personally take responsibility for your harvest.
If you have been obeying God’s word, no matter what the particular area, there are blessings accumulating to your account. But sometimes people don’t know what’s in their account because they never check the balance or maybe they are looking in the wrong places. God is faithful to His word and if we obey His word we will receive increase, spiritual and natural. God is no respecter of persons, He will bless whosoever will believe and act upon His word. God just says, “Have faith in God.”
Most accounts are opened or established with the intent of depositing and withdrawing. In the natural we are accustomed to managing our own accounts and being in charge of everything. However, as Christian’s, children of the Most High God, we are now operating in a whole new kingdom, The Kingdom of God and in His Kingdom He ruleth over all. He is the King! Whenever we give or receive in His Kingdom we must do it with the understanding that it all originated from Him. He gives us seed to sow then He provides the power for it to grow then He fills your storehouses or accounts to overflow! God will and does supply! We just need to cooperate with His system and His plan.
Go ahead enter you security code and access your heavenly account and check out what’s been deposited into your account, the account that’s attached to obedience that is.
