PRINCIPLE #1 GOD IS YOUR SOURCE
PRINCIPLE #2 GIVE, AND IT WILL BE GIVEN TO YOU
SEED FAITH PRINCIPLE #3 EXPECT A MIRACLE
God has many faith principles in His Word. As you learn them, your faith will help you
-Sow a seed against a need. In other words, you must give your seed an assignment or name your seed.
-Follow up the seed-sowing with speaking to your mountain of need.
-Then immediately get into the faith attitude of expecting a miracle harvest.
As we do these things by faith, we come into a state of knowing. And that state of knowing causes us to expect a miracle.
Expecting a miracle is the attitude absolutely essential to your life.
Just as you look to God as your Source, and sow your seed in faith, you can expect to RECEIVE FROM God as your Source.
Your expectation is why God multiplies your seed sown.
Expecting a miracle everyday can become a way of life. One that makes every day exciting , waiting to see what God will do in your lives on that day!
Why don’t people reap a harvest?
Can you guess why?
They have not sown.
My first Rule of Reaping is you have to sow. Give and it will be given back to you…
People do not have a harvest because
They have not sown.
We must sow! We must sow in faith!
You would think everybody would know that. But some don’t. They think they only have to make confessions, turn in prayer requests, or call the hot lines.
That is not enough.
We’ve got to give, We’ve got to sow in faith.
The Lord will help us get started.
If we have absolutely nothing, He will give us seed to sow. Ask Him for seed and He will give us seed.
Don’t grumble. Don’t complain.
We have not because we ask not. That’s James 4:3
It is important for us to remember when it is reaping time, we must honor God with the firstfruits of everything that we reap. The firstfruits of all our increase.
Pastor has taught us on tithing and the laws of increase. Remember in one lesson, he asked three questions about tithing: What? Where? Why?
What is the tithe? We learned that the tithe is the 1st tenth or 10% of all increase.
Where should we tithe?
Malachi 3:10 tells us, Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and prove Me now in this,” says the LORD of hosts, if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it.
Listen to the NIV.
Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.
We learned that the storehouse is the local church that the Spirit of God directs you to join.
Why does God want us to tithe? God wants us to tithe in order to finance His work in the earth. He also wants us to tithe so that He can bless us.
Key statement: A very familiar one.
Tithing is not sowing.
Tithing is not optional either.
