Delta Dawn When That Light Comes On

Week 28


Seeking the Kingdom as in Matthew 6:33, teaches that Father God gives and we receive according to our faith (believing that what He says, He will do). “Come, now, let us reason together, says the Lord.  If you be willing and obedient, you will eat of the good of the land, for the mouth of the Lord has spoken it.”  Isaiah 1:18.

“Reverence of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge (also wisdom).”  Proverbs 1:7.   Father God is determined to show heirs of His Promise immutable evidence that by Jesus’ Body and Blood, He cannot lie.  Hebrews 6:17-19.  “And He is able to multiply your seed sown, thirty, sixty and an hundredfold.”  Mark 4:20

Tithes (10% of the gross) are given, first of all. into a ministry which feeds your spirit and demonstrates His power.  Luke 4:18 depicts an Acts 2, New Testament) church or ministry.  Giving any amount of net income may be done any time. 

One can give without loving, but one cannot love without giving.  Place this gift where, as a partner, you have a share of what their special anointing effects. 

A God Account is wise.  Certain occasions will call out to you by Holy Spirit and you are equipped to freely, generously give.  Present it with a prayer. Philippians 4:6

   “Give and it shall be given unto you, good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over shall be given into your bosom. For the same measure (generosity) that you use shall be measured back to you.” Luke 6:38.  El Shaddai, (All Sufficiency) loves a prompt to do it, cheerful giver!  2 Corinthians 9:7

“Blessed be the Lord who daily loads us with benefits.”  Psalm 68:19 

One young boy was thrilled when a missionary came to his church.  The church had purchased a little red jeep for the missionary.  Now he needed to transport it to Africa and buy fuel for it, there.  The little boy was overcome with a desire to give into this effort, but his allowance was small and only once a week.  Then, he remembered how ravens brought food to Elijah at the brook Cherith, every day.

   He told his mother, “There is a hollow in the tree outside my window.  If ravens can bring food to Elijah, they can bring money to the tree.”  He went to look, and found several coins right where he said they would be.  He checked, each day, after school. 

All in all, he was able to give more than $15 into the fund for the little red jeep.  Several years later, when he visited the missionary in Africa, he drove that same little red jeep while ministering Jesus to the African peoples.

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them for such (purity of heart) is the Kingdom of God.  Assuredly

I say to you, whoever does not come to God as a little child, will by no means enter it.  And He took them up in His arms and laid His hands on them and blessed them.”  Mark 10:14-16.
