A Rhythm of Sowing

A Rhythm of Sowing

The apostle Paul, writing to the Philippian Church, said, “Now you Philippians know also that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church shared with me concerning giving and receiving but you only. For even in Thessalonica you sent aid once and again for my necessities” (Philippians 4:15–16 NKJV).

The inference in the original Greek version is that the Philippians gave to Paul’s ministry “again and again and again.” In other words, they got into a rhythm of sowing their seeds to God. And Paul went on to say that as a result, this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches which have been given to us in Christ Jesus (v.19 NLT). Because of the seeds the Philippian Christians sowed again and again, God said He would meet them at the point of their need.

Why is this important? Because… there’s no doubt you have a need today. Everyone has needs. It may be something spiritual, physical, or financial. Maybe it’s a need in your marriage or your job. God is saying that you can plant a seed against that need and then believe Him to use it for His glory and multiply it back to you in the form of your need (Luke 6:38).

The little church in Philippi got into a rhythm of sowing again and again into Paul’s ministry, and things began to happen in the supernatural realm. When you get into the rhythm of sowing your seeds in faith to God, He can bring you a miracle harvest in the area you need it most!
