July 9th The ‘What’ Of The Tithe
Bible Reading: 1 Chron. 16:15; Gen. 2:16-17; Lev. 27:30, 32
‘and blessed be God Most High, who has delivered your enemies into your hand. And he gave him a tithe of all’
The tithe is a covenant transaction that’s a choice and not a chance. It is a covenant-secret given to you and I for the release of wealth. Always remember it is not a man-made concept but a God-given instruction. Your wealth inheritance is spiritual and the tithe is a crucial access key.
The tithe, which is one-tenth of your increase, is God’s ‘money’ in your custody or control. The truth is what you do with God’s funds in your power has a tremendous impact on your ability to access His prosperity plan for you.
Adam awoke to wealth in the Garden of Eden; it was an inheritance God prepared for him. To retain the Garden and it’s wealth he was to look after a ‘tree’ but recognize it wasn’t his. That’s the same concept with the tithe. Honour God with your ten percent and He will ensure you enjoy your inheritance.
i. Pray against the spirit of carnality, selfishness and lukewarm faith amongst believers 2 Tim. 3:1-5
ii. Ask Jesus to build His church numbers, finances, influence, impact and dominion Acts 2:42-47; Mat. 16:18-19
Thought for the day:
Practicing the tithe is a deliberate choice and not a chance
