Have You Been Rewarded For Your Giving?
If a person has been giving to the Lord according to His will, that person will receive from the Lord in a good and pressed measure. If he is not receiving from the Lord, he has a curse upon his life. What curse does such a person have upon his life? It depends on what sin he or his forefathers practiced that grieved the Lord. If he or his forefathers were practicing a sin of worshipping false gods, he will receive from the Lord but what he receives will be stolen by the enemy. If he does not repent of his sin or the sin of his forefathers, he will not be able to benefit from what the Lord has given to him.
Are you Giving in Obedience to the Lord?
When a person gives, he is also expected to receive a reward as a result of giving according to the Lord’s will. How will a person know how to give in accordance to the Lord’s will? That person will have to give in accordance to the guidance of the Holy Spirit. If that person has not yet abided in obedience to the Holy Spirit, he need not give. The giving that such a person will practice will not have a reward attached to it. How can a person know when the Holy Spirit requires him to give? If you have been able to abide in obedience to the Holy Spirit, you will not find it difficult to give. I was told by the Holy Spirit to give my children Him. When the Lord told me that, I did not understand. I received understanding as to why He told me to hand over my children to him when I went into prayer with the Lord. If you have been told by the Lord to give to Him, it is usually because the Lord has a plan that you know not of. Had I refused to give the Lord my children, I would not have been given the gifts which I now have from the Lord. How does the Lord expect you to give to Him? If you are abiding in obedience to the Lord, it is inevitable for you not to give. At that point, you have a good relationship with the Lord.
