    Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations. I will be exalted in the earth. Psalms 46:10 WEBIt was another busy day with so much to do, so many bills, so much going on, the pressure and anxiety kept me up most of the night.

    The multitude rose up together against them, and the magistrates tore their clothes off of them, and commanded them to be beaten with rods. When they had laid many stripes on them, they threw them into prison, charging the jailer to keep them safely, who, having received such a charge, threw them in...

    I love those who love Me. Those who seek me diligently will find Me. Proverbs 8:17 WEBI came out of my prayer room that morning feeling like I was walking on a cloud with tears of joy in my eyes. If you would have told me that the world was getting ready to explode, I would have said 'Let 'er blow!'...

Rain On Me

  • But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today exists, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, won't he much more clothe you, you of little faith? Therefore don't be anxious, saying, 'What will we eat?', 'What will we drink?' or, 'With what will we be clothed?' For the Gentiles seek after all these things, for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first God's Kingdom, and his righteousness; and all these things will be given to you as well. Matthew 6:30 WEB

    Jesus said 'seek first the kingdom of God and these things (material things) will be added to you.' Elijah told the widow, 'first make me a little cake and afterward make something for yourself' (1 Kings 17:13). God said, 'bring all the tithes into the storehouse and then I will bless you' (Mal 3:10). Jesus said, 'Give (first) and it will be given to you (later)' (Luke 6:38).

    God's love is unconditional, He loves the entire world (John 3:16), but His blessings throughout the Bible depend on our obedience to His word. 'You do this, and I will do that.' Even John 3:16 contains a choice with 'whoever believes in Him' meaning that some will choose the other path.

    Obedience is the ultimate form of praise and the fruit of faith. It proves that you believe enough to take action on it. We work so hard trying to just make ends meet, but unless we put Him first financially we will always have holes in our pockets (Hagai 1:6). When we choose obedience, He will rain His blessings on us (Deuteronomy 28:12).

    So many times while joyfully serving God, I have received things beyond what I thought was possible. God really knows how to be extravagant and it brings tears to my eyes at times, seeing His excellence and timing.

    As a young Christian, I worked a job making $250 a week. One Sunday I went up front to put my $25 tithe in the offering basket. The fact that we could not afford to give was irrelevant to me. I felt that 'God is either real, or He is not. Why pretend with words, let's do this right or go home. God said to test Him ( Mal.3:10), and I will.' When I got home later and sat down to read my Bible, I found that someone had slipped $250 cash inside it while I was up front. I gave Him ten percent and He gave me tenfold the same day.

    Another time I gave $40 in an offering and the preacher prayed a blessing over the basket that it would all be returned one-hundred fold. Within a month someone gave me $4,000 dollars to help me buy a car. I gave $40, God multiplied it one-hundred times and gave it back in a month.

    These are not normal occurrences, they are examples of the blessing of God that follows obedience to His word. I am telling you this because it is real and we live it in our own life, yet I see so many of you struggling just to get by. There is not enough money on earth to help you when God Himself blows it away when it comes to your house (Hagai 1:9). The word of God is true. God is not dead, nor is He blind, also He is pretty good at math. A 100% return on 0, will always be 0. Give first, and it will be given to you later, or learn to embrace poverty.

    He wants first place in our life, in all areas. Relationships, finances, decisions. When we focus on the Lord Jesus, everything else will fall into its proper place. When a husband and wife truly place the Lord first, they will be in unity. When you give God first place in your relationships, you will treat others correctly. When we instead place ourselves and our wants first, it always ends in division and frustration.

    When we all begin to put God first in our life, we will come to unity in spirit and the things that divide us will no longer matter. Denominational barriers will gradually melt away because we all love God, and we need each other. If satan has his way, every single person will be cut off from God and from each other. We would all be alone in a dark room with no hope and no friends. It is divide and conquer at its finest because he knows there is strength in numbers.

    In all areas of our life, God wants to be first, and when you do He will bless you beyond what you think is possible. God is always looking for ways to bless us, but it often requires a step of faith on our part to get it started. Give the Lord first place in your life in all areas, follow His gentle prompting, for faith without works is dead (James 2:26). The greatest blessing awaits those willing to step out on the water.

    Prayer: Father, I adore You and pray that You make this word real to me. Rain on me Lord and lead me into all that You have. Help me to break out of the normal cycle. Grow my faith Lord and help me walk closer to You, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Norman Glaze Sr
Norman Glaze Sr I can remember so many times being under condemnation from hearing Preachers preach "You Better Tithe or your Cut Off from God!" We were struggling so hard at times, my wife was feeding us and our 2 children on 20.00 a week. I tried so hard to do what the preachers told me was right, but many times could simply not muster the faith to do it. Looking back, I realize God knew my heart, and He knows our level of Faith. Today, we have been(And Are!)so very Blessed. My wife and I truly have been given the Desires of our Heart. We give more than 10% these days, and we are So Thankful to be able to help others. But as I said, it certainly wasn't always like it is now. I guess I wrote this tidbit so if anyone reads this, and has suffered the same horrible feeling of Condemnation because you aren't able to give as much as you'd like, for fear of not being able to make ends meet, relax. God Knows your situation, and it will Most Definitely change for your Good in time. I always use our New Covenant Scripture to Put things in Perspective: Let Every Man Give as he purposes in his heart, NOT Grudgingly, nor of necessity, for God loves a "Cheerful" giver. Love and Prayers

Karen Pasquinelli Amen!!!  I have experience this in my life and I found it doesn't matter who you give to, it could be a Church or an individual that may need it and you give it out of the kindness of your heart not because you expect something back in return.  PRAISE GOD for always providing when you need it the most.

Chris Dibbern
Chris Dibbern I love what you said about denominational barriers melting away. Most of the time, I attend a Catholic church, since I prayed about joining a Protestant church that I like better (it feels friendlier), but God had said "no, not yet." I've seen blessings result from that, so I know it was right, even though I often hear people knock catholicism for being rigid. Then, one day, God opened my mind to understand the Body of Christ a little better by showing me that all the cells in our body all read the same book, and obey the same head (who is Christ), yet choose to differentiate into the various organs. They all do so, validly! This includes the bones, which, at first glance, appear rigid and dead, yet, when you look within, you'll notice they contain the marrow, which is alive! :-)
