Review on Seeds 3. Wednesday, July 3rd.
Over the past two days, I have discussed ways to yield harvests from the seeds you sow. Today, I will focus on seeds that are sown according to God’s instructions.
These types of seeds yield beyond 100; they produce unlimited returns. In 1 Kings 17:8-16, when Elijah told the widow to bring him her last meal and she obeyed, the result was an unlimited provision of food for her household during the famine.
When God commands you to give, and you obey, He pours out unlimited blessings upon you.
When I became the general overseer of ECRAD, the total monthly income of the church was less than my monthly salary as a lecturer before my resignation. After paying the staff salaries, there was usually nothing left for me. Times were tough, and I looked forward to receiving my gratuity because I had served the government for many years.
My plan was to invest part of the money and save a portion, hoping that before I finished spending my savings, the church would have grown to the point where I could start receiving a salary. When the gratuity came, I remembered that God was now my Commander in Chief, so I asked Him how to spend the money.
To my great surprise, He said I should divide it into three parts and give each part to different ministries. Nothing was to come to the ministry I led, even though we had needs. I trembled when He gave me this instruction, but then He followed the instruction with these words: “I will be your source.” I obeyed, and since then, He has truly been my source.
In Malachi 3:10, God commanded that you bring ten percent of your income into His treasury, and He will open the windows of heaven and pour out blessings that you will not have enough room to contain. This is an unlimited blessing that comes from obeying a single instruction. God blessed Abraham and told him that He would be his reward (Genesis 15:1). Imagine God Himself being someone’s reward. That is an unlimited blessing.
When you check what precedes this, you will discover that this blessing came to Abraham after he gave the first tithe to Melchizedek in Genesis 14:18-20. Your tithe is a significant gateway to God’s unlimited blessings.
When God asks you to give, it is an opportunity for you to experience His unlimited blessings. Do not let such opportunities pass by.
