MOUNTAIN TOP LIFE DAILY DEVOTIONAL



KNOWING GOD THROUGH GIVING


FIRE SCRIPTURE: 1 Kings 17:8-15


MEMORY VERSE:

Genesis 22:10 "And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son."


PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit


THE MESSAGE:

There is a mystery that many believers do not understand. It is to know God through giving. The evidence of your total submission to God is measured by your giving.


Your giving shows your love for God. Many claim to know God but do nothing to further His Kingdom. Some people cherish their possession and what they have received more than the Giver. Abraham in our Memory Verse wanted to sacrifice his only son because God asked for him.


God is interested in what we give and He is equally interested in what we do with what remains after we have given. How do you show that you know God through your giving? By the generosity of your giving, of course.


You appreciate God as a GIVER of every good and perfect gift (James 1:17) through your giving. When you give, it shows that you trust God to provide for you. One of the reasons why people are stingy towards God and others is fear. Fear does not recognise God, but faith shows that you know that God did it and that He will do it again. We have the example of the widow of Zarephath.


God was concerned about the needs and misery of the poor widow. In fact, God sent Elijah to encourage her faith and give her some material blessings when she gave her last meal. Not many people can do this but this widow clearly showed that to offer all is nothing to her.


God was her All in All and her Sufficiency, even when it looked like all hope was lost (1 Kings 17:2). Because of her faith in God, she was willing to exchange certainty for uncertainty. Beloved, do you know God? Are you willing to show that God is paramount in your life? Then give your all.


MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE:

No one has ever become poor by giving.


PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:

I PROPHESY THAT GOD SHALL GIVE YOU A LIBERAL HEART AND MAKE YOU FLOURISH, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
