“When Solomon had finished all these prayers and supplications to the Lord, he rose from before the altar of the Lord, where he had been kneeling with his hands spread out toward heaven.”
Prayer and Financial Blessings pt 1
Yesterday, we started to look at the relationship between our prayers and financial blessings. The point I left off with yesterday was the misconception that “every believer is going to be rich!” And some other such teachings that others accuse the “Word of Faith” movement to be claiming.
And, to be truthful, there are some preachers and ministries that make that area their focus.
But the fact remains, you cannot be a blessings to others if you are barely scraping by. Right?
In order to be a blessing – you must be BLESSED with whatever it is you are trying to help others with. It just makes sense, right?
If you are blessing others with fixing up their cars as part of your ministry, you should know everything there is to know about fixing up cars. If you are blessing others with helping them to lose weight and to get into prime physical conditioning, you can’t weight 400 pounds and be unable to walk across the room.
Well, the same thing happens concerning finances, giving, blessing others and supporting ministry work. If you don’t have two nickels to rub together, it’s terribly hard to support missionary work in Africa. Amen!
The point I’m trying to make is this…
YES – you must be blessed financially in order to impact this world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ through your giving.
But, you do not need to be filthy rich to do so. You just start where you are at. Amen!
If you have $20, give $2. Give the tithe. If you only have $200, give $20. Give the tithe. Start there. I’m not going to say God will “rain money down from Heaven upon you” for giving $2. But if that is all you have – He will make sure the other $18 goes farther than it could have if you would have held on tightly to it! Amen!
