🍇🍒SEEDS OF DESTINY

TOPIC: UNDERSTANDING THE TITHE
SCRIPTURE: Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. Malachi 3:10.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The tithe is not yours; the tithe is God’s portion in your possession.
It has been confirmed that understanding is key to outstanding existence in life; what you know is what you can show. In other words, knowledge is showledge. Also, what you see is what you can seize.
One reason people remain under the bondage of poverty is the ignorance of the secret of the blessing of abundance and supernatural supplies which is accessible through the tithe.
In our study today, we shall seek to understand what the tithe is all about.
1. The tithe does not address the needs of God; it is targeted towards addressing the needs of man
It is important to know that nothing changes with God if man does not pay tithe, but everything changes with the man who does not pay tithe. We do not pay tithe because God is in need, we pay tithe because we are in need. It was not because God was looking for fruit to eat that He told Adam not to eat the forbidden fruit (Genesis 2:15-17). So, the tithe does not address the needs of God; it is targeted towards addressing the needs of man.
2. The tithe is not a giving but a payment
A person gives what he owns but pays what he owes. You give your offerings but you pay your tithe; you give what is yours but you pay what you owe. This is why God said in Malachi 3:8 that we rob Him if we did not pay our tithe. It is robbery if we spend our tithe. If you use your tithe to buy a cloth and wear it, you are literally wearing a stolen cloth or cloth bought from stolen money. That is not your portion in Jesus’ Name.
So, the tithe is not yours; the tithe is God’s portion in your possession. The tithe is God’s portion in man’s possession.
Remember this: The tithe is not yours; the tithe is God’s portion in your possession.

2. Release God’s portion, the tithe, in your possession and be consistent in the practice.
PRAYER: Lord, I refuse to eat what belongs to You. I receive the Grace to hold nothing back but pay my tithe always, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
