Topic: “The Expectant Giver”
TODAY’S SCRIPTURE: Job 22:23-25
If thou return to the Almighty, thou shalt be built up, thou shalt put away iniquity far from thy tabernacles. Then shalt thou lay up gold as dust, and the gold of Ophir as the stones of the brooks. Yea, the Almighty shall be thy defence, and thou shalt have plenty of silver.
GOODNEWS DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR TODAY 30TH SEPTEMBER 2021
Money comes to measure value. And there is a value in the way you give, specifically, in your motive for giving. The premise of giving is for His sake, not your sake. That is why not every giver will be blessed, and not every tither will receive. God is not looking for a seed of money.
He’s looking for a seed of the heart. Malachi 3, verse 7 says that when you return to God, He will return to you. Did you catch that? He is not saying He will return, as in coming back to you. He never went anywhere. He is saying that when your heart towards Him is changed, you will give with the right motive, and that kind of giving will cause a return to come to you.
When your heart is for the Kingdom, God becomes your defence, and your money is protected. So, what should you do when you give? Change your focus. When your focus becomes the Gospel, your giving changes, and your reward changes. Set your heart toward Jesus. After your heart is changed, you will lay up gold as dust.
My seed wins souls, builds cities, cares for widows and orphans, and sends the Good News of the Gospel all around the world. I am a Kingdom-minded giver. My money is protected, and the return is guaranteed!
