Giving in the Word
Scripture says, “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed
down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For
with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” (Luke 6:38)
God wants to bless you and prosper you in your finances and in all areas of
your life, but there is a spiritual principle that we must follow in
obeying and giving that unleashes God’s supernatural provision!
In Malachi 3:10, God says, “Bring the whole tithe to the storehouse, that
there may be food in my house. ‘Test me in this,’ says the Lord Almighty,
‘and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so
much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.’ ”
Tithing is the key to financial blessings. Oftentimes, we want to
receive the latter part, the overflowing part! And God wants us to! But we
have to be faithful and obedient with the first part, giving.
When we are obedient, we are backing up our faith with actions. After all,
faith without works is dead, and it’s our faith that pleases God.
When financial slumps come, that is not a time to quit tithing and giving. In
fact, we have learned in our family that is a time to put more seed in the
If you don’t give the first 10% of your income to the Lord, the Bible says that
you are robbing God and yourself because if you have no seed, you have
no harvest. But when you sow your tithe to the Lord, you can expect a
harvest in your finances.
If you have stopped tithing for any reason, then I encourage you to repent
and obey God. God wants to bless us, but we must be obedient to Him.
2 Corinthians 9:6–8
“Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and
whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should
give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under
compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you
abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you
will abound in every good work.”
“Bring the whole tithe to the storehouses, that there may be food in
my house. ‘Test me in this,’ says the Lord Almighty, ‘and see if I will not
throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that
there will not be room enough to store it.’ ”
I am a giver, in the Kingdom of God, and I am equipped with great provisions of finance to do so, in Jesus’ Name. The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places, I have a goodly heritage, in Jesus’ Name!
God bless you today. Rule, even as you increase in Christ, in Jesus’ Mighty Name!
