“Test me in this.”
He tells us to bring the whole tithe into his house. When we do this, he promises to “throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.” (Malachi 3:10).
Wow! Such a great promise!
Don’t we want that to be true in all of our lives?
Those of us who have tested God in this have experienced these blessings. When we are faithful with our wealth, God truly does throw open the floodgate of blessings upon our lives.
Sometimes these blessings take the shape of actual money with raises, promotions or even unexpected checks showing up in the mail. (This just happened again to me).
But the greatest blessings God pours abundantly upon our lives are from the things that money can’t buy. Like joy. Purpose.
Oh, the peace that comes from knowing that God is providing exactly what I need is priceless. The peace that comes from knowing that God is in charge of our bank account is supernatural. The prosperity that comes from God is perfect – the right kind, the right time.
God wants us to be faithful with our wealth…
because it’s good for us. It’s right for us.
And he will open the floodgates.
He has promised.
Thank you, Abba Father.
