The Lord Wants to Bless You



Do you ever feel as if everyone else is receiving blessing from God and you are left out? The truth is God is faithful to His promises, and He wants to pour blessing into your life. Many times receiving blessing is a result (or consequence) of obedience.

Consider Malachi 3:10-11:
Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so there will be enough food in my Temple. If you do, says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, I will open the windows of heaven for you. I will pour out a blessing so great you won't have enough room to take it in! Try it! Put me to the test! Your crops will be abundant, for I will guard them from insects and disease. Your grapes will not fall from the vine before they are ripe, says the Lord of Heaven's Armies.
Now listen to Jesus in Luke 6:38:
Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.

Tithing and sacrificial giving – it is something the Lord challenges us to engage in. Spiritually, tithing is an act that stretches us as we strive to trust God more. When we obey, we receive blessing. It’s just that simple.

What have you been putting your faith in so far? How has that been working for you? Try trusting God more than you ever have before and see if you get different results than what you’ve experienced up to now. I invite you to make a life change, beginning today, as you offer to God the tithe (of your time, talent, and treasure) as a sacrificial act of worship and obedience. You will be blessed.

I pray that each of you is having a great spring.

Claiming the Promise,
