September 28th Financial Principles I
Bible Reading: Lk. 5:4-8; Lk. 6:38
Gen. 8:22 ‘while the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, and day and night shall not cease’
David brought down the giant Goliath with a small stone. Here are small ‘stones’ of truth that will bring down any financial giant boasting before you. Every time you give to God in worship, you give into plenty and compel Him to multiply your seed. Peter gave Jesus his boat and Jesus gave him a bumper harvest in return.
If you truly love God, you will not hold anything back from Him. As is often said, ‘you can give without loving but you cannot love without giving’. Jn. 15:13 says ‘greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends’. Give to God with passionate love and He will certainly reciprocate with what He has.
Mat. 19:29 ‘and everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and inherit eternal life’
Farmers understand the value of good ground for a great harvest. Likewise, God is the best ground to sow. Plant your seeds where God is doing things; saving the lost, healing the sick and restoring the afflicted and you will not miss your blessing. ‘As long as the earth remains, seed time and harvest will not cease.’
i. Pray that believers will walk and live by faith and not by situations and circumstances. Hab. 2:4; Rom. 1:17
ii. Pray that you become a candidate and carrier of God’s greatness and glory. Deut. 3:23-24
Thought for the day:
The Law of Seedtime and Harvest is not a hypothesis.
