Today’s promise is 2 Corinthians 9:6 NKJV:
“But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.”
In God’s reality, giving is never about “what’s in it for me?” Nor is it always about money. In the Heavenly realm, giving is always about the attitude of the heart toward others. Jesus demonstrated this best at the cross. It wasn’t pleasant or convenient for Him to give His life. So how could He be a cheerful giver?
While it should be a joy and privilege to share what we have with others, be it money, time, or spiritual gifts, it doesn’t always feel that way. True cheerfulness in giving should ultimately come in the knowledge of who God is and who we are in Him. Jesus knew He was put on this earth to bless us and show us God’s glory. He also knew that no matter what it cost Him, His Father would bless His obedience far beyond any personal cost. Jesus was our example. Cheerful giving is not an expression of generosity, but an expression of faith.
Heavenly Father, You have promised to take care of all my needs. I purpose and choose this day to repent of my lack of faith in Your care and ability. I bind and rebuke the spirit of mammon that keeps me from trusting in Your provision. Lord, all things on earth are Yours to give and take, and You have not put me here to horde what You have given me, but to bless others and reveal Your love and glory. Please make me a cheerful giver, in Jesus’ name, knowing that You are more than capable of taking care of my needs. Amen.
Have a victorious day in the Lord!
