God's promises are sure and His Word is true. We know that He is faithful to those who are faithful to Him.
- Of the many names of our Jehovah we take great comfort that He is our source for life itself, having created and sustained our very breath in our bodies and He has provided all we have need of.
He is our Jehovah Jireh (The Lord Will Provide) 1 and our Jehovah Shalom (The Lord Is Peace) 1, our good, good Father partnered with His Son Jesus Christ and the ever true Holy Spirit.
When we give back to Him the first and the best of all He has given to us He recognizes our grateful, obedient hearts and rewards us with more of His presence, His provision, healing of our bodies and relationships, and so much more. How and when He does each of these things is in His timing alone. . . but we can rest assured that our magnificent, loving Father knows and sees our need.
He wants to help us. And when we are faithful to give Him the best of our time, talent and treasures The LORD takes note. We can call upon His name and ask for His help in times of trouble. And we can rest in His arms always and ever if we will only put Him and His ways first.
Tithing is also an act of worship. We demonstrate our love for God by honoring His guide book, the Bible, when we willingly sacrifice the first ten percent (10%) of all that He entrusts to us.
And when we have strayed or made bad choices - guess what - He is still there, waiting, wooing, longing for us to return to Him. To be restored to the fullness of relationship for which we were created to love and worship the most powerful, omnipotent, omniscient force in all of the universe. For He is I AM - without beginning or end - our Alpha and Omega.
God wants to bless us when we listen and obey. Follow His Word and rejoice in the Lord always. The path is sure for eternal rewards when we fully submit and surrender to do The LORD's will joyfully.
From the heart with all praise to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
In Christ Alone
