Way To Abundance – Giving!
Some years back when we were passing through dire poverty I had only three sarees and that too they were in shreds and patches. But I was not worried in the least. I would mend them and keep them clean without my husband’s knowledge. I continued serving God in all humility and never gave up His call. Probably God wanted to test me to see whether I would follow Him and do His ministry without complaining. After watching our patience and genuine faithfulness in following Him, the Lord gradually lifted us out of poverty. Today He has blessed me to render help to many a servant of God who are struggling in poverty. We are able to send the tithes to several other ministries and servants of God who are in need, from the offerings that we receive.
Beloved, make a decision today to be a giver. Do not give up the ministry that God has entrusted to you for petty issues. God is watching over every deed that you do. When you have the capacity to minister unto God or help the needy, do it immediately. Bible says, “Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to act”(Proverbs 3:27 ). Paul, in the Bible who has dug deeper about the joy of giving makes a beautiful statement, “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 (2 Corinthians 9:7,8). Trust in His system of managing your finance and enjoy your cup overflowing!
Thank You for the strength and wisdom You have given me to earn wealth. All I have is from You. Grant me a grateful heart towards You. Teach me to manage my finance in a righteous way. Grant me a heart of faith to give generously. Help me to abound in every good work that You have pre-destined for me.
In Jesus’ name I pray,
