Increase Your Grace To Receive
As long as the world exists, there will be a
time for planting and a time for harvest. There will always be cold and heat,
summer and winter, day and night"(Genesis 8:22).
One of the most profound principles in the Word
of God that guarantees continuous increase in finances is the principle of
giving. Your giving is a channel to facilitate your receiving, for there can be
no receiving without you first giving. 2 Corinthians 9:8 gives us divine
insight into what your act of giving propels: “And God is able to make all
grace (every favor and earthly blessing) come to you in abundance, so that you
may always and under all circumstances and whatever the need be self-sufficient
[possessing enough to require no aid or support and furnished in abundance for
every good work and charitable donation]” (AMP).
Another thing your giving does is that it
establishes your righteousness: “Now he that ministereth seed to the sower
both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase
the fruits of your righteousness…” (2 Corinthians 9:10).
Our lives as Christians should depict the
character of our heavenly Father, who gave His precious Son, Jesus for our
salvation: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life”(John
3:16). Make up your mind today to be a big giver like your Father, and activate
the grace for receiving in your life.
Confession I am a big-time giver, and I invest wisely and
rightly as I give for the propagation of the gospel and the expansion of God’s
Kingdom. When I give, I receive because God channels spiritual and material
blessings to me from all over the world, Hallelujah!
