    For I, Yahweh your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, Don't be afraid; I will help you. Isaiah 41:13 WEBWe have a proverb we live by when performing live music: "If you hit a bad note, hit it good." Yes, it should be "hit it well," but that's the phrase I grew up hearing in South Carolin...

    Because he has set his love on me, therefore I will deliver him. I will set him on high, because he has known my name. He will call on me, and I will answer him. I will be with him in trouble. I will deliver him, and honor him. I will satisfy him with long life, and show him my salvation.' Psalm 91...

A Christmas Story

  • Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you. Luke 6:38 ESV

    As Christmas approached, we felt like doing something special. Looking back, I am sure that it was the Holy Spirit prompting us because He wanted to bless us, and needed a reason. We needed to be givers for what was soon coming.

    We owned a small computer business and it was really slow that year. We had a lot of spare parts and time, but very little money. So we came up with this idea that we would take all the spare parts that we could muster and build them into working computers. We then planned to find some widows without one and bless them. So we did just that.

    We made a few people happy and everyone had a great Christmas. Then in January a client contacted us and gave us over $10,000 of new computer equipment. We got things that we would not have dreamed of buying. If you get the urge to bless someone, go with it. It is probably the Holy Spirit prompting you so He can in return bless you with something.

    God could bless you anyway, but He did say give and it will be given to you. I didn't write it, I read it. The reverse could read: 'Don't give and it will not be given to you.' Sowing and reaping works just as surely as farmers plant and then harvest. If you don't plant something, the only things that reliably come up are the weeds.

    Prayer: Father, show me the opportunities in my life to plant a seed. Guide me and give me wisdom in my giving, in the name of Jesus.

It seems to me that so many people think that God is some sort of Santa Clause, that to me does not seem the case. I have found that His promises are very real, but they are provisinal on us doing the right thing first, then He will act. Give and it shall be given back, or seek first His kingdom and His rightousness and all these things will be added unto you. There is no shortage with God, He is just waiting on you, really take pleasure in who God is and serve Him only, He will give you the desires of your heart!

Amen, I find when I give without expecting anything in return, that not only do I feel joy in the giving, but later on down the road He gives it back to me increased.
