My First Year Results with Tithing: A Personal Case Study (Part 2)

My tithing case study

As I stated in the last post I wanted to give an unbiased and truthful account of my first year with tithing. Up to this point in my life I had never seen anything done like this before. Most people when they talk about tithing are quick to talk about how much of a multiplication and increase they saw in their life.

With me…that was not case.

Tithing Thanksgiving and Faith

faith2

Before I start I wanted to share a brief testimony: I recently paid off 95% of all my debt!!!! The details of this I will disclose in another post; but I did want you to know it is a GREAT feeling to get out from under that bondage. Prosperity is the next freedom I’m aiming for.

But onto the post…

We’re at the point we’re the Thanksgiving season is upon us. Yes, have fun with family, friends, and the food but don’t neglect the tremendous power you have at your disposal with thanksgiving. The Bible says:

“Let the peoples praise You [turn away from their idols] and give thanks to You, O God; let all the peoples praise and give thanks to You! The earth has yielded its harvest [in evidence of God's approval]; God, even our own God, will bless us.” (Psalms 67:5-6 AMP)

So basically the more we thank God for what we have the more we seem to have! It’s the same principles that Jesus used with the 2 fish, 5 loaves of bread, and 5000 people. He thanked God for what He had–then what He had became more than enough!

“Yeah Mike I get that. I do that all the time. I always thank God when He blesses me.”

But what about thanking Him before He blesses you. Don’t forget what Paul said:

“Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God.” (Philippians 4:6 AMP)

Thanking God after you get what you ask for is common sense, thanking Him before is a sign of faith.

So here’s what you do:

  • If you’re tithing thank Him for opening the floodgates of heaven, pouring out a blessing you don’t have room enough to receive, and rebuking the devourer for your sakes.
  • If you’re sick thank Him that you’re healed.
  • If you’re impoverished thank Him that wealth and riches are in your house.
  • If a family member is acting crazy thank Him that you and your house serve the Lord.

Thank Him BEFORE YOU get it. That shows you really believe He’s going to do it.

What do you think? And oh yeah…Happy Thanksgiving!

 

 

You Are What You Say You Are

The power of words

As a person there is TREMENDOUS power in what you say. As a believer, even more so. Jesus said it like this:

“For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, ‘Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea;’ and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.” (Mark 11:24 KJV)

So You Need a Word from God, eh?

sign

You’ve been reading this for a while. You’re sold on the idea of tithing. You want to start it even though things are tight.

But before you do you need a sign. A word from God that you’re doing the right thing.

Well you’re in luck, God gave me that word for you.

Are you ready?

You sure?

Alright then here it is:

“Bring all the tithes (the whole tenth of your income) into the storehouse…” (Malachi 3:10 AMP)

Selah.

Is that enough of a “sign?”  ;)
