Wednesday 10th October 2018 Morning Prayer Devotion
Scripture Reading:- Genesis 22:1-19
Topic:- Understanding Giving
Text:- Luke 6:38
Giving is a key to receiving. Giving opens the door to our blessings. The unbelievers give their money, resources, honorary titles etc to individuals, government and corporate bodies with the hope of receiving some benefits from them.
Abraham is a good example in this case. He gave tithes to the king of Salem in Genesis 14. In Genesis 22, he obeyed God when he was told to offer his son Isaac as a sacrifice to God. God blessed Abraham for this spirit of giving.
The widow of Zarephat gave out her food to the man of God and she was blessed for doing so. See 1Kings 17:18-24.
In John 6:1-4, a small boy gave the bread and the fishes in his possession to Christ so that others may be fed through it and there were left overs.
God gave us His son JESUS and billions were won to Christ, John 3:16.
Giving is always rewarded by God. Read Galatians 6:9; Proverbs 11:25; Matthew 6:20-21; 2 Corinthians 9:7.
1. I refuse to be replaced nor my position to be taken by another person, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2. Oh my God, my vision must not die with me, I must actualize it in Jesus name.
3. Oh God, let giving be part of me henceforth so that I too will become blessing to others.
Have A Beautiful Mid-Week!
