When it comes to giving to the Lord, many people raise their eyebrows. However, there are so many blessings attached! Early in my relationship with my husband (21 years now), he told me we will be giving 20 percent of our income as tithe and Kingdom investment. I agreed and have seen how the Lord has blessed us.
Recently, I decided I had been on that 20 percent mountain for too long, so I told God I wanted to increase it to 25 percent, but I needed a salary increase to be able to do that. At this time, I had been on the same level at work for eight years with no hope of promotion, and taxes were increasing! But as soon as I started implementing this in August 2018, a promotion letter followed in September with a raise in salary and six months’ arrears paid in November!
When we honor the Lord with our substance and the first fruits of our increase, He fills our barns with plenty and our vats with new wine!
Father, please help me to honor you with all I have in Jesus’ name.
