“I am God—yes, I Am. I haven’t changed. And because I haven’t changed, you, the descendants of Jacob, haven’t been destroyed. You have a long history of ignoring my commands. You haven’t done a thing I’ve told you. Return to me so I can return to you,” says God-of-the-Angel-Armies. “You ask, ‘But how do we return? “Begin by being honest. Do honest people rob God? But you rob me day after day. “You ask, ‘How have we robbed you?’ “The tithe and the offering—that’s how! And now you’re under a curse—the whole lot of you—because you’re robbing me. Bring your full tithe to the Temple treasury so there will be ample provisions in my Temple. Test me in this and see if I don’t open up heaven itself to you and pour out blessings beyond your wildest dreams. For my part, I will defend you against marauders, protect your wheat fields and vegetable gardens against plunderers.” The Message of God-of-the-Angel-Armies.
Our Power Of Giving is directly linked to our understanding and embracing God’s love, presence, and power in and for our lives. The more we understand, realize that God loves us unconditionally and as a result He is with us in and through all things releasing His power to enable us to live and live in the fullness of His promises of life and life more abundantly. To get an understanding of God’s love, presence, and power we must be sensitive to Him and know Him. Paul said to know Him in the power of His resurrections and the fellowship of His suffering makes us conformable to His greatest act of love, dying on our behalf so that we may live. God loves you no matter who you are or what you have done, His love is real in and to your life and for that reason you and I have not been consumed, destroyed. With the understanding of God’s love, presences and power, we can Catch The Wind of His Spirit, be sensitive, and flow with Him with a heart of gratitude. As we are grateful to God, we acknowledge Him in our everyday life as our source, plugging in and turning Him on in our lives, being His visible presence in our world and space and as a result He opens the windows of heaven to and for us, blessing us beyond measure. And as we receive and give out of His blessings, we serve as His representatives, decreasing in our thoughts, heart, and thus actions to reflect Him and His glory, His revelation in our lives; submitting and humbling ourselves under His mighty love, presence, and power. Exercise your Power Of Giving by acting to and for everything and every one in your space out of a heart of gratitude, worship, and humility unto God, the Creator, Savior, and Sustainer of all life, who rebukes any and all things that would hinder your life and life more abundantly, Catch The Wind!
