SCRIPTURE: Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. Malachi 3:10
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Your prophet is for your profit.
Previously, on the journey of exploring the activation keys to the Blessing of God, we looked at a life of obedience and righteousness as the first keys; we saw that obeying God is a trigger for the release of the Blessing.
Today, we shall see other keys that activate the Blessing of God on one’s life:
1. The practice of tithing and giving
The Bible says, ‘bring all your tithe into the store house and I will pour you out a Blessing…’ (Malachi 3:10). So, the tithe is a Blessing connector. Anyone who does not value the practice of giving and tithing is not permitted to have the Blessing; and if a person does not tithe obediently, promptly, faithfully, revelationally, and accurately, the Blessing would be far from him.
Beloved, it does not matter how long a person prays for a change of story, if he is not a tither, the struggle continues.
2. Existence under prophetic covering or influence
It has been confirmed that anyone who is on a higher level spiritually and in the blessing can be used of God to release the Blessing upon a person who is on a lower level (Hebrews 7:7). Your prophet is for your profit. In Numbers 6:23, the Bible says, ‘On this wise shall the priest bless the people…’ The major assignment of the priest is to bless the people. So, the priests are custodians of the Blessing.
Beloved, my counsel is, obey the instructions of your prophet, value his person, and then the Blessing he carries and pronounces will flow upon your life.
Remember this: Your prophet is for your profit.
1. Go through the study of today again.
2. Be committed to the covenant of tithing and giving; be connected to a genuine prophetic cover.
PRAYER: LORD, thank You for the privilege of tithing and giving for my lifting in life. Help me to be faithful and let Your blessing flow upon me and my family, in Jesus’ Name.
