Often I thought to myself that I am giving so much for the Lord. I am referring to my financial giving to the Lord. I thought I am doing more than anyone.🙄 I was wrong. 😕
God said to me, “Hey Bible blogger, from where did you receive that money?” I replied to the Lord, “what do you mean?😕 I earned it with my own hard work!”😐
God asked another question. From where do you get strength to earn your wealth?” I said, I have my own strength! 💪🤨💪
God pointed one scripture quote.👇👀
Deuteronomy 8:18 NASBS
But you shall remember the LORD your God, for it is He who is giving you power to make wealth, that He may confirm His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.
I requested God for more detailed explanation. 🤔 He said, “to earn money you need a job correct?” I said, “yes.” “To do job you need physical and mental capacity.” I said, “yes.” “From where does it come?”
I said, “I eat well, exercise daily and sleep well. That’s why I am able to work well.” God said, “today if I take your strength from you then what would you do?”
Now, I was bit serious.😑 I was afraid.😥 I said to God, “I got the point.” I realise that God is quite strong and anything is possible with God. He can make a healthy into a sick person as a punishment.
I said to God, “God today I realise that you are my supplier. You are preserving my soul and that’s why I am alive. You feed me with all good things that I need today.”
Matthew 16:26 NASBS
For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?
I asked God, “what can I give you Lord?” God pointed out to another scripture quote.
Psalm 51:17 NASBS
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; A broken and a contrite heart, O God, You will not despise.
God values what World doesn’t value. God is not need of your wealth. He wants only one thing from you is your heart. ♥️ I feel that is the most difficult thing to do.
Romans 12:1 NASBS
Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship.
This is another hammering blow. God is a saying that I should give myself when there is enough life left to serve God. He doesn’t want my leftover life. He doesn’t want my old age. He wants me Now.
Oh God. I give me grace to do this. Help me to present myself daily as a living sacrifice at the feet of the Lord.
I hope this post will encourage you.
