Who gives you strength to wake up in the morning and stand on your feet? God. How much do you pay for the air? Nothing. How much do you pay for the sun to shine or for the rain to fall? Nothing. God gives us much more than we give to Him and all He asks is that we seek Him first. He wants us to put Him above everything and everyone in our life.
“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” Matthew 6:33
To be saved we have to put God first. To receive the Holy Spirit we have to put God first. To have communion with Him, we have to put God first.
Just like with the tithe, my part is to present to God the 10%. God’s part is to add to my life what I can not do by myself. To help me achieve what I could not accomplish on my own. You see, it is a partnership.
Our entire relationship with God is based on us doing our part in order for Him to do His part. He does not take the first step, but if we are willing to take that first step, then He is more than willing to take the next step on our behalf.
So the only question left to ask is, are you ready to enter into a partnership with God?
May the God of the Bible Bless You
