(07/31/2000) law of offering
|Hello prayer warriors,
1. Prayer note: law of offering
[2 Corinthians 9:6]
But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap
also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall
reap also bountifully.
One of the keys to experiencing enduring prosperity is
the law of offering.
What lies beyond our tithes is our offerings. The law
of offering determines the measure we receive. I am
not a farmer but I heard that the first thing the
farmer does is set aside part of the harvest as grain
for the next harvest. How much you expect from the
next harvest is also determined by how much you sow
back into the land. The more you sow back into the
land, the more you will receive.
If you have not been tithing, give offerings when you
feel comfortable tithing. Give according to your level
of faith. Ask God to reveal to you how much to give
and to what cause.
Our tithes are to be placed back into the storehouse
from which we receive spiritual food. If you receive
spiritual food from your local church, give back to
your local church. Like what my pastor says, "Don't
eat at Kentucky and pay at McDonalds!"
Our offerings can be placed into whichever cause that
God places in our hearts. Pray for God to reveal this
in your heart that you may be able to sow specifically
and give according to your level of faith because God
loves a cheerful giver.
[2 Corinthians 6:7]
Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so
let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God
loveth a cheerful giver.

iii. Pray for Susan -- maryp
A friend has a mass in her chest that was discovered a
year ago on a cat scan. She has been unable to make
herself follow through and call the surgeon. She says
she wants to put her faith in God & not this dr. My
reply was that God gave this dr the talent & wisdom to
help her. She lives in constant fear & anxiety. Please
pray Susan will call the dr. She also needs prayer for
her spiritual life as she has stopped attending

says right now. Thank you for your prayers!
