Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
- Luke 6: 38
The key to living in the overflow of God's abundance is to give generously. God wants us to be the answer to someone's need. This is one of the ways He shows His love through us. We are His hands and His feet. Perhaps you are the one in need. Then give, however small, and your giving will open the hand of God toward you. As you receive, give more out of the blessing. The farmer harvests a crop, and uses some for eating and some for sowing that there will always be food in his house. Therefore give until you give a steady stream and you will have rivers of provision so you can always be a blessing to others. God does not need your money. What He is after is producing a heart that is generous, compassionate, full of grace and love toward others. These are the true riches.
Pray for an opportunity to give secretly to a need in your local community.
Pray for the people in our Church, that the Lord will give new jobs, promotions, pay raises, and increase in personal ministry support, so that they will have seed to sow.
Pray for increase in provision for the growing ministry of our church.
Ask the Lord for a generous heart towards His kingdom.
