Pouring Out The Flood Gates

main image

Malachi 3:10
Bring the whole tithe into 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.

We Christians do not understand that God needs our obedience even in our financial responses. Samuel the old prophet of God said obedience is greater than sacrifice. We are not bound by law, but by being obedient to God even in our finances sacrificially, we find that, God will exceed our faintest expectations. We are not doing so, with the seed of faith that is firmly planted in his storehouses (our local church ministry), to brother wonderful or sister magnificent; but we are doing so to further preaching the gospel in the very communities that we live in. When we do so we are obedient to how the Jesus said to spread the Gospel of his kingdom. By starting with our home, reaching our communities, spreading through our state and our nation and then reaching our world for his sake. When we reach out he will bless our efforts and bless us in ways we never thought possible.

Are you struggling with how or why? God wants to bless you and in your obedience, God will pour out the flood gates of Heaven and richly bless you!

The Never Forsaking God

main image

He Himself has said, "I will never leave you nor forsake you." —Hebrews 13:5

What line of thinking do my thoughts take? Do I turn to what God says or to my own fears? Am I simply repeating what God says, or am I learning to truly hear Him and then to respond after I have heard what He says? “For He Himself has said, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you.’ So we may boldly say: ‘The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?’ ” (Hebrews 13:5-6).
“I will never leave you…”— not for any reason; not my sin, selfishness, stubbornness, nor waywardness. Have I really let God say to me that He will never leave me? If I have not truly heard this assurance of God, then let me listen again.
“I will never…forsake you.” Sometimes it is not the difficulty of life but the drudgery of it that makes me think God will forsake me. When there is no major difficulty to overcome, no vision from God, nothing wonderful or beautiful— just the everyday activities of life— do I hear God’s assurance even in these?
We have the idea that God is going to do some exceptional thing— that He is preparing and equipping us for some extraordinary work in the future. But as we grow in His grace we find that God is glorifying Himself here and now, at this very moment. If we have God’s assurance behind us, the most amazing strength becomes ours, and we learn to sing, glorifying Him even in the ordinary days and ways of life.

~~~ Wisdom From Oswald Chambers~~~
It is perilously possible to make our conceptions of God like molten lead poured into a specially designed mold, and when it is cold and hard we fling it at the heads of the religious people who don’t agree with us.
