“Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.” 2 Corinthians 9:7(KJV)
Start this new 2018 with a resolution in your heart to give more to God.
Starting with your weekly offering that you give to God every Sunday, purpose in your heart to increase it more than it was last year.
Prosperity is a covenant relationship with God that rests squarely in your ability to give to with obedience and in love.
As you want increases in your life determine to increase your generous giving. It is a principle that works all the time with God.
“Remember: A stingy planter gets a stingy crop; a lavish planter gets a lavish crop. I want each of you to take plenty of time to think it over and make up your mind what you will give. That will protect you against sob stories and arm-twisting. God loves it when the giver delights in the giving.” 2 Corinthians 9:6-7 (MSG)
The Widow of Zarephath, The Shunammite Woman, David and Solomon Kings of Israel and the Churches of Macedonia are some examples of givers in the Bible that their cheerful giving made the positive difference in their destinies.
Ask God how HE wants you to give and as you obey HIM in offering you will see the manifestations of HIS increases in your life.
Learn to hear his voice and follow HIS instructions, and surely His increases follow.
“If you listen obediently to the Voice of God, your God, and heartily obey all his commandments that I command you today, God, your God, will place you on high, high above all the nations of the world. All these blessings will come down on you and spread out beyond you because you have responded to the Voice of God, your God: Deuteronomy 28:1-2 (MSG)
