***Whatever God calls a man to do, He enables and empowers him but retain his right to freewill***
***Obedience is a key***
Note: God will not demand sacrifice of you of which he had not made provision for and so in giving back we are showing gratitude and appreciation to the great provision of Jehovah Nissi, this can be seen in the order of creation, before God created man, he made abundant provision on earth. (See Genesis 1: 1-28).
In Genesis 14: 18 we also noted that Abram also paid tithe through Melchizedek king of Salem, the high Priest of the most high God after he had been successful in a battle to save his cousin Lot.
Deuteronomy 8:18 And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day
Deuteronomy 8: 7-10 For the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, that flow out of valleys and hills; a land of wheat and barley, of vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive oil and honey; a land in which you will eat bread without scarcity, in which you will lack nothing; a land whose stones are iron and out of whose hills you can dig copper. When you have eaten and are full, then you shall bless the Lord your God for the good land which He has given you.
The Lord will only require of you from His abundance of Provision for You and your sacrifices of Tithing is from that which you have recieved as an income. Honour is due to whom honour is worthy of.
Haggai 2:8 ‘The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine,’ says the Lord of hosts.
Today I pray you truly receive the Spirit of obedience and worship in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen
