“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 9:8 NIV).
If we do things God’s way with a generous heart motivated by what is right by God, then expect God to meet all of your needs. In the verse today, you see ALL pop up 3 times…..3 seems to be a theme throughout scripture, but I digress. In a Greek study of the word all….it was found to mean….”all”… ALL means ALL. It is just a catch-ALL phrase. God says He will take care of All our needs we just have to trust Him.
How badly do we want God’s blessing in our life? I’m sure we all answer yes we want it but HOW BAD? Bad enough to trust Him with ALL and EVERYTHING and choose to willingly obey His commands….NO MATTER WHAT!
He goes on to say in 2 COR. 9: 10 NIV “He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness” We live God’s way giving God’s way, He MULTIPLIES our effort seeds of generosity EXPONENTIALLY.
EXPECT GOD TO MULTIPLY YOUR SEED.
GIVING IS A SEED YOU SOW.
LET GO OF WHAT GOD HAS PLACED IN YOUR HAND.
WHEN WE DO, HE WILL REPLACE IT WITH MUCH MORE
Five times in scripture Jesus commands not to store up wealth on earth.
And those 5 times He tells us to store it up in heaven….HOW? giving and planting seeds of generosity.
When you do that, God will use your giving to reap generosity in others. They will see that you trust God in all things, and they will be blessed. That blessing will reap a harvest that God can multiply for His kingdom in ways you could never imagine
“Be the gift to everyone you encounter by living generously for them not wanting anything in return except their happiness.”
