Welcome to the concluding part of this teaching we started off last week. I hope that you have started the process that leads you to being blessed above all your ignorant peers. We reviewed the example of Isaac as he sowed in the land in the time of famine and he reaped a hundred fold returns in the same year. Being conscious of the covenant, he prospered and continued to prosper until he became prosperous to a point in time when the Philistines envied him. I would not want to dwell much on this, please get last week’s write up and read to have a full understanding of where we are coming from.
Beloved, kindly note that the era of manna dropping from heaven is over and God will not drop food physically from heaven again as in the days of old.
Malachi 3:10-12 reads, “Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My storehouse, and prove Me now in this,” says the Lord of Hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessings that there will not be room enough to receive it. “And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, so that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground, nor shall the vine fail to bear fruits for you in the fields” says the Lord of Hosts; and all the nations will call you blessed for you will be a delightful land” says the Lord of Hosts”.
Reading through this portion of the scriptures, we will surely see the process of God’s work in it all. First issue is bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house, then leaves the rest to me to accomplish. What start the process is you bringing the tithes.
Pouring out the blessings from the windows of heaven must do with what you have within your hand doing. The blessings will come in form of ideas, connections that a suitable to your achievement of goals and at times it may be a marriage partner that will make the difference in your whole life.
When God empowers you for wealth creations, the process most times commences from you being able to save. As you save, He further creates the opportunity to convert the savings to tangible investment opportunities that cannot just be wished away. Many times a lot of people have money stocked-up somewhere and they cannot get anything to put it into until they eventually spend it in bit and pieces, while some other people at the very point of gathering the saving, sees the opportunity of someone who is in dear need of fund and needs to sell-off a choice property with all approval papers in place. Immediately such a person keys in and the investment chain begins.
Friends, a lot of people call this coincidence but it is not, it is basically God at work. When God prepares a man, the further creates the opportunity to make full proof of the preparation. A lot of people are prepared, but the opportunity never comes to showcase what stuff they are made of. When you pay your tithe, heaven moves to ensure your preparation is met with adequate opportunities. Remember, it is the blessing of God that makes rich and adds no sorrow to it. When God blesses you and increase His blessings, it is without additional toiling as the amplified bible put it. As you save and then transform the savings into whatever investment God opens up to you, the investment begins to grow and becomes prosperous because there is an added advantage of the covenant blessing of Abraham upon you.
As you continue to do these, new ideas continue to flow into you on how you can do better what you are doing now which leads to more productivity. With proper insight and patience to understand what God has laid in your hands to do, you become better than the people you met doing the same thing because you have more understanding than your teachers. You have Christ who is the wisdom of God. As long as Christ is in you, you have the wisdom of God in you. You just must understand the process of the workings of God and stop leaving your life after the pattern of fire brigade officers who do not know where and when the next fire incidence will be.
Miracles are good, but blessing is better than miracles. Please go all out for understanding the process of Gods operations in our lives. To have a happy marriage there is also a process, which is wife, submit to your own husband and husbands, love your wife as Christ loved the Church that the gave Himself for her. Husbands must love their wives to the point of laying down their lives down for their wives. Happiness is not found in marriage but you make up your mind to bring happiness into your marriage by allowing the process for happiness in your marriage. It is not just by accident, but it is a process. Please follow the process and you shall see the salvation of the Lord. Shalom!
