TO THE BIBLE: Genesis 8:22
“While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, and day and night shall not cease.”
When you sow a seed into God’s Kingdom, financial or otherwise, it’s so important that you do it in the appropriate manner. You’re operating a spiritual law by giving to God, and you must understand the guiding principles that make such a law work.
As you give, one essential thing you must do is to speak to that seed you’re sowing; in other words, tag it. You either tag it based on the purpose it’s meant to fulfil, or based on the biblical instruction you’re following. As a matter of fact, it’s the word you speak concerning your seed that actually distinguishes it. For example, when we ordain ministers, we usually lay hands on them as we pray. When we minister to the sick, we also lay hands on them as we pray. What differentiates the two is the word spoken. So when you speak to your seed, you distinguish it for a specific purpose, and that’s what guarantees it’ll yield the right harvest.
Whether you’re giving your tithe, first-fruit, or other special offerings, make sure to name it appropriately. Observe carefully what the Word of God says concerning each kind of offering and follow the instructions. This will help you greatly as you release your faith through your words.
Dear heavenly Father, I give you glory for imparting the knowledge of your Word to me concerning giving and receiving in the Kingdom. I’m walking in wisdom henceforth as I sow my seeds. And I’m reaping a tremendous harvest according to your infallible Word, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
What changes are you going to make in the way you give your offerings henceforth?
