Topic: Practise The Principle Of Sowing And Reaping [TREM Devotional Saturday June 16, 2018]
“While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.” Genesis 8:22
When you have given your heart to Christ, you need to begin to obey what Jesus said concerning sowing and reaping. When you now obey Him in your finances, then you are on your way to financial abundance. The common excuse is: “But I don’t have”. Beloved, everyone has something to give. And some of you sit in church and you say I am not working. My Pastor knows that I am not working so I cannot give tithe. You are shooting yourself in the leg. Yes, you are not working I know, but has somebody ever given you money, either for upkeep, pocket money or simply a donation, no matter how small? Once any money comes to you, take out one-tenth of it, don’t touch it.
Let me ask you something. Those of you who don’t pay tithe, if you are in a business deal with somebody and he is supposed to give you $1 out of $10 and the person suddenly takes your own $1 and his $9, will you be happy? No! So, you get upset when they take your own and you want God to be happy when you take His own.
Beloved, God owns everything! But He says take 90% and give me 10%. I think that is a fair deal! There is no man that will do that with you. God does not ask us to give because He is in lack. God asks us to give because He wants to bless us abundantly. Our giving secures the flow of God’s abundance into our lives. Don’t ever cut back in your tithing, your offerings and your seed faith. Giving is God’s wisdom for financial increase. Walk in this wisdom.
