Sadly, many believers who pray for financial
blessings and a breakthrough are those who
have also been neglecting His principles of
giving in faith.
The Bible says: "You should remember the
words of the Lord Jesus: 'It is more blessed to
give than to receive'" (Acts 20:35). Yes, for
the widow of Zareptha to be blessed, she first
had to give to the man of God (1 Kings 17:7-
16); for Abraham to be blessed with a child
despite God's promise, He first gave to
strangers, not knowing they were angels
(Genesis 18:2-8); For Abraham to be blessed
with material, He first gave a tenth of his
gains to Melchizedek (Genesis 14:18).
My friend, when you don't self-examine your
faith in the living God, you are just like a
young woman who fornicated (had sex out of
marriage) and knowing that, she neglects the
symptoms she feels in her womb until one
day she finds out she is pregnant... so, when
you self-examine yourself, remember that
because of what Jesus did on the Cross we
are no longer condemned and the only thing
the Lord expects today is: "Let us examine
our ways and test them, and let us return to
the Lord." (Lamentations 3:40).
Stay Blessed, in Jesus' name.

The Bible tells us to seek God's kingdom first
and His righteousness (Matthew 6:25-34) and
everything else shall be added to us. Have you
succeeded in this target this year or have you
missed it? Let's go into details with at least two
targets that easily be corrected. The Bible
says: "And let us not neglect our meeting
together, as some people do, but encourage
one another, especially now that the day of his
return is drawing near" (Hebrews 10:25). Is
your attendance at work or school or outgoings
100% (except for when justified) while your
attendance at church meeting is less? Check
yourself and consider what Jesus who
established the Church thinks about it. Another
target we can check is the principles of giving,
because this is a real issue for many believers
of Christ, yet they continuously ask God to give
Have you given more towards worldly things,
to your loved ones, to yourself (buying clothes,
food, travelling, going out, etc...) while your
balance of giving back to God through
offerings and tithing is less than 10% of what
you have earned throughout the year?
Be honest with yourself, because the Lord
does not joke and He is calling you a robber if
you don't apply His Word: "Will a mere mortal
rob God? Yet you rob me. "But you ask, ‘How
are we robbing you?’ “In tithes and offerings.
You are under a curse..." (Malachi 3:8-9).
