Which do You Give Him?

I will praise the name of God with a song, And will magnify Him with thanksgiving. This also shall please the Lord better than an ox or bull. Psalm 69:30-31 New King James Version

Do you give Jehovah lip service?                                                                                              

You know, you may like to sing the songs of praise and love and adoration in church or while listening to Christian radio stations but do you sing them to actually praise, adore and love Him or do you do it because it makes you feel good.                                                      

Do you give time and or money to charitable causes because it makes you feels righteous and feels good or do you do it as an act of thanksgiving and gratitude unto our generous Father in Heaven?                                                                                                                      

Just as you do not desire lip service love what makes you believe Jehovah does?                    

The simplest act of love and adoration is of more wealth to Jehovah than all the self righteous and self centered acts in the world combined. No matter how great they appear to the world they are as valuable to Jehovah as a used piece of toilet paper if they do not come from a heart of love. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                          

Prayer: Oh how I love to do things great and small as an act of love and appreciation unto You my beloved Father for all the magnificent and wonderful blessing You have so generously blessed me with. The most supreme one of course being blessed with the most incredible loving relationship with You. I sing hallelujah to You my love in the name of Your best gift ever to me, my beloved King, Savior and best friend Jesus Christ. Amen                                                    

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

He Gives You the Equipment.

May he equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to
whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. Hebrews 13:21 New International Version

When you have received and obeyed your calling from the Lord, He will always equip you with what you need
to accomplish that calling.

 

If you try to go on your own you will fail miserably.

 

Speaking from personal experience when I first was called to be a Christian writer I attempted to learn and do it
on my own, even though I knew nothing of writing. I failed miserably.

 

Every time I surrendered and asked the Holy Spirit to show my how to do it, it was an instantaneous opening if my eyes and learning how to succeed in what I was trying to accomplish (now not all things are instantaneous. Learning how to use the tools and learning how to use them and where to use them took three years. The thing that I was trying to learn at the time to move forward is what I am referring to.) .

 

That does not mean He will give you everything you want but instead everything you need.

 

You may want a big jazzy web page to attract a large audience but may instead be given a small plain one that is more effective in attracting ones who are seeking Christ.

 

I expect great things from God, I attempt great things for God. William Carey

 

Prayer: I thank You Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) for blessing me with the opportunities and the tools to serve You. I give thanks in the name of He who served You all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

 

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

Give in Proportion

“Give in proportion to whatyou have” 2 Corinthians 8:11 New International Version.

HE HAS THE WORK PREPARED

Please remember this before giving.

So if you are just getting by do not feel ashamed or obligated to give whether it be to your church or to a certain cause.If either your church or certain causes try the guilt trip on you just quote this verse to them.

Instead of giving money (which you cannot afford) why not donate your time instead?

You can be an usher or Sunday school teacher at school. You can canvass for a cause you believe in.

On the other hand, if you earn a comfortable living or higher do not be stingy with your giving.

If you can afford to go to lunch or buy coffee at a certain chain store every day, you can afford to be generous in your giving.

The pastor needs money to take care of his family and the church needs finances to pay the bills like hydro.

It is the same thing with your personality.

If you are an introvert (prefer to either be alone or in small groups) and someone tries to domineer you into attending a big social function do not feel obligated to go.

Personally, I prefer small Bible study groups over big churches.  I feel uncomfortable in big groups but love mentoring one on one.

If, on the other hand you enjoy being in big group settings and there is a big social function, why not donate your time?

So give what God has blessed you with to His glory and to your fulfillment.

I do not conform to what other think I ought to do but to what God has made me to do. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Please Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) bless me to be as gracious with the abundant gifts You have so generously given as You have been to me. I humbly ask this in the name He who gave the gift of His life for me Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
