My children feed My children. It is of My hand through your own that My Kingdom is made known. I have chosen that by your work, My hand moves. The ability by My hand, but by yours the decision to do so. I do not rule as earthly kings, for the Kingdom of God is the greater. When I was with you, My kingship was limited as men, but in My Spirit, greater works are done through the children of the Kingdom. You are My child, and your hand is as My own. When you give, My Name is given glory, but when withheld, my storehouse grows empty. Your works of generosity bring blessing, and without, there flows little to those in need, those that may later bring the blessing. Mighty is My power, but I chose you as My instrument of blessing. Give as I have given to you. Your work and its provision is not without aid unseen. Work that you can be generous, for in generosity is the greater reward of work.
Malachi 3:10 (ESV) – Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. And thereby put me to the test, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need.
Bottom Line: We work for the paycheck, but that should not be the end for a child of God. The food on our table, the vacation, the roof over our heads, our bank account, are all because of His provision in our lives. Scripture is clear . . . God loves a generous heart. He has set-up a system that flows His blessing to others through us. Make sure you’re not hindering the flow!
