You and I can sit down and share reasons why giving is so important, but I want to share one very important reason that the Holy Spirit revealed to me years ago. A sister came over to our home years ago and while thereby she cried because they didn’t have any food or money. At that time my husband was drawing unemployment because he didn’t have a job. Usually for the week I would buy a big bag of pinto beans and I could serve my family of 5, different delicious bean meals and still have beans left over. Knowing that was all I had for the coming week to feed my family, I took the bag and gave her half. I believe that our God seen my heart that day of being a GIVER and began to develop the “heart of a giver” in me. You see that day as I gave, I fulfilled His Word “it is better to give than to receive” When you give you are planting and the more you give the more you plant and your planting in due season will bring you a harvest. There are seasons we are called to be on the receiving end and that is quite alright but eventually we need to get out of that line and begin to distribute to others who are in need—become a giver in 2018 the SECRET OF BEING BLESSED!
I can recall years back when we were developing the Morning Glory property and needed every penny for that land development venture. Meanwhile someone came to see me and shared that a brother and his family needed to get home to another state and didn’t have any money for gas and expenses and he didn’t know what to do. The only money I had was in my money-bag and not near enough to do any more land developing or pay bills. I had no savings, stocks or bonds, no money stashed away in my sock drawer for a rainy day so to speak. I called the brother over to my house and emptied my money-bag out and it was enough money to get him home. He took off happy and content, but I thought now I’m left with an empty bag with no money, what am I going to do now Jesus?
A Widow Woman Shows Up
The day went by and no sign of anymore money. That night we were already in bed when we heard a knock at our door and we got up to see who it was and a widow woman stood at my door and handed me a brown paper bag, I asked her in but she said she could not stay but needed to go. After she left, we opened the paper bag which was full of money $9,000 dollars--enough money to pay all the bills and continue the work to develop our new property. To God be the Glory, surely it is better to give than to receive. This New Year 2018 is a year of giving – start the year off right – give, give to the Glory of God! You and yours have a blessed, happy and prosperous New Year!! Jesus will continue to walk with us leading all the way into great victories.
Also A Time To Seek God With All Your Heart
Our God supplies when we become great GIVERS. This year not only are we to be GIVERS, but SEEKERS OF GOD. In Psalms 9:10, it reads, “Those who know your name trust in you, for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you.” What a wonderful promise to have in these trying times we are living in. Enemy nations wanting to bring us down here in the United States, destructive weather, terrible terrorism, etc. The good news is you and I have a great PROMISE--that if we walk hard after God in Jesus name and SEEK Him, He will never forsake us. There is a special way to seek God—WITH ALL OUR HEART. In Psalms 119:2 it reads, “Blessed are those who keep his statutes and seek him with all their heart.” Yes, again I say, seek Him with all your heart and we will find Him in a GREATER WAY IN 2018!! When we find Him then we'll be sure that we are walking and following Him into a WONDERFUL blessed life full of His goodness, mercy and prosperity in every area. I was saved in 1976 as I was hitting rock bottom with no hope, and in deep depression and felt like I just didn’t want to live anymore. But Jesus changed my life and gave me hope. Since then He has been my Saviour every step of the way and the only regret I have is that I didn’t come sooner in my life to know and walk with Him, but since then I have made every step count for Him Again, be blessed in 2018!
