Are you living and giving out of duty or out of faith? Parents teach duty to children so they will find more life and faith later.
Duty without faith can become bondage. It’s the law that can kill life. But on the same consideration, the lack of duty and understanding can also kill life.
23 But before faith came, we were kept under guard by the law, kept for the faith which would afterward be revealed.
24 Therefore the law was our tutor to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
25 But after faith has come, we are no longer under a tutor.
We are always students or disciples – people who learn more about God. Even if we don’t think we are learning, we are learning.
It’s important to give by the spirit. When we give, no matter where or how, we are connecting with something.
If we give out of arrogance, we will reap pride! If we give out of love, we will reap love.
There is a lot to this. If we give to our own, we will reap comradarie. If we give to our enemies, we will reap strength.
If we give to the needy, we will reap compassion. If we give to those who teach us, we will reap honor.
If we give out of duty alone, we will reap a disciplined spirit. But if Love is not in that mix, it become the letter of the law or legalism.
Are you giving to life? Are you giving to honor? Are you giving to God?
Some people look foolish but they are really wise. Some people look wise but may only be in duty. Jesus says, what you sow you reap!
Giving goes beyond just the coins in your pocket. It involves your actions and your words. Good will comes in many appearances.
Do you give in cooperation with angels? Angels are ministering spirits sent to the heirs of salvation. There are other angels out there too! They are at work, even if you don’t “see” them.
Steven Brooks has a good book called Working with Angels. I really recommend it. Not every book on that subject I would recommend.
Back to my words now, when you get in the divine flow, you are working with the cooperation of God’s angels.
We are removing together the pall that has been over the earth from the Fall. This is why portals are important and they are broken open through prayers and giving.
Your giving has power if you will use it strategically. If you just give out of blind duty, someone else is using your strength, but is it working for you and your relationship with God?
God is calling for the REAL. He is Real!
Do you believe really that God wants you to be blessed in Him. When we WAKE UP to GOD, we suddenly realize we have decisions to make. God is not taking over our decisions! He is waking us up to the fact we need to make the RIGHT decisions.
Do you want someone else to talk for you or do you want to speak for yourself? Hello! Do you want to talk to God or do you want someone else making those decisions for you?
You have to learn God. You have to learn His protocols, His ways of doing things. You have to understand He has a big Picture!
God is a Spirit and you communicate to Him in worship, in spirit and in truth! We are not competing with others for truth. We aren’t competing for power either! It’s all His!
You learn Him best when you freely receive and freely give.
This is where you learn your balance. When you buy the truth you do not buy it for yourself alone.
Can you hear that in the Spirit?
Is your foundation finances or love?
Kingdom business is not the same thing as secular business but you can learn Kingdom business from it – and you got that here for free! 🙂
Kingdom business is a whole different dimension!
If you are not a good steward in the Kingdom, you will not do a lot of Kingdom business.
Someone may have a big company in the world and not do a lot of Kingdom business.
But his staff might!
So understand if God moves you, it might be so that you can do more Kingdom business!
Because you are talking to Him by your spirit.
It’s important to connect with the Body. Are you giving? Are you receiving? Are you in the flow? Who cares if you shake and quake, it’s good if something MORE is happening too that BLESSES God’s Kingdom!
God gave you a brain to use! Enjoy His benefits but connect with the Head.
