.. .and I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts.
– Malachi 3:11
Read: Malachi 3: 8-12; Psalms 126:5-6
So you have identified your seed: Time, money, skills, etc. You are about to sow. But wait a minute, I must tell you about the enemy. I know we are so excited about a guaranteed harvest and we just want to go out and start sowing. Now you are thinking of new investments and thinking of where you’ll be maybe 5 years from now. We must understand the enemy. He, the Devil comes to steal kill and destroy. While you are not looking, while you are working so hard, he comes to pollute your seed and completely aborts it or gives you a sub-optimum yield. The surest way to protect your seed is through tithing. God says if you tithe into His house, He will personally protect your seed from the destroyer and make sure you get your harvest. Child of God, I encourage you not to play with your tithe; this only guarantees abortion of investments and unnecessary toil and hardship. We need God’s favor to make our projects work and make our dreams come true. If you never used to tithe, start today. Your tithe is the title of your contract with God. Your tithe rises before God as an aroma and He guarantees protection of your seed as it matures; you will reap a bountiful harvest, in Jesus’ name! The grace of God is working in your life already, and if you will step out in faith in spite of how challenging your financial situation may be, God will honor your faith and surprise you with His rain. The enemy is forever silenced and rebuked on your behalf in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
