Have you ever felt like, you are spiraling down hill when it comes to your finances? Do you feel like no matter what you do, your money just keeps getting eaten up by different things like, tires, higher than normal electric bills, grocery prices rising, gasoline prices rising, unexpected doctor bills, or vet bills?
Here is the deal. We are children of God. We should not worry about such things, as He has already provided for us all that we need according to His riches. When we worry over such things we are giving the devourer energy to eat up our seed. We are giving the enemy free reign over our seed.
God tells us in Malachi, that He will not let the devourer take our seed, that He will protect our seed and see that the windows of heaven are opened and blessings poured out on us. When we start worrying over the economy we are given in to the enemy and no longer trusting in God's word. We are walking by sight and not by faith. AMEN!
Mal 3 v 10-12..."Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this", says the Lord of Hosts," If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, so that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground. Nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field," says the Lord of Hosts; "And all nations will call you blessed, for you will be a delightful land," says the Lord of Hosts.......
When we trust Him and not ourselves or the economy, our seed will not dry up. If we would spend as much time praying over our tithes and seeking the Lord as to what to give in our offerings instead of just throwing a tip in the basket when it comes by us, we would not be worried over such matters, for we would know that the windows of heaven are opened to us, and blessings are ours, and that we will always have more than enough. AMEN!
The word tells us He gives us all things to enjoy, not just our needs being met, but all things to enjoy. We will have no lack. How can you enjoy all things if you are constantly concerned over your bills? I am not telling you to go out and be a spend thrift and frivolous. I am saying do not be concerned where your needs are, know that they are being met and enjoy what you have and give Him the praise and thanks for it. Quit patting yourself so hard on the back because you earned what you have, and start thanking Him by giving back into His kingdom what He has blessed you with. Then let the windows of heaven open for you and enjoy what He has given you.
1 Tim 6 v 17-19....Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy. Let them do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to give, willing to share, storing up for themselves a good foundation for the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.....
The Lord tells us to do good with our riches. He is not giving us all riches to hoard up for ourselves or to make sure our children have a good life when we are gone. No He is telling us to be willing to give, to share so that others may know the goodness of the Lord. So that His word can be brought to the ends of the earth. So others will know the love of Jesus and hear of the eternal life He has for them.
The word tells us not to grow weary in doing good. So when you are feeling like your seed is drying up, get back in His word and see what He says, He will rebuke the devourer, He will cause your vine to produce fruit, in your season you shall reap all that He has to give you. Stand on your faith, make a demand on your faith, and He will meet your needs and give you the desires of your heart.
Gal. 6 v 9-10.....And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap, if we do not lose heart. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith....
Don't give in to the devil and the economy of this world. Don't put your trust there. Don't stop tithing because you think you can't afford to give. That is a lie of the devil to keep you in bondage to him. YOU CAN"T AFFORD NOT TO GIVE! Trust in His word, and keep your heart right before the Lord and keep those windows of heaven opened unto you. AMEN!
STAY IN THE WORD!
