“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 you will not have room enough for it.”
It has been said NOT to test God, but this is a scripture that the Lord Almighty is highly suggesting that you do put this promise to the test. Really the only way you are going to find out for yourself the power of the tithe is by doing it. Yes, you can hear stories of other people being blessed by putting God first financially and that will help you decide to test this, but the promise of the floodgates of heaven pouring out such a overflow of blessing should be more than enough to get the tithe money ready to give.
What is your weekly pay. Write out a check for a tenth of that, or online give a tenth of that to your local church. If you watch an online ministry then give them for example. I enjoy being involved in a local church where I can not only give financially, but where I can also give my time and skills in the church and local community.
Naturally if 10% is a stretch for you to get started do pray about it and come up with what you can do to start. Then create a covenant for your giving with the Lord and increase it as your finances increase. God knows where you are at and will guide you to new levels in your finances just like any other area of your life.
LORD I KNOW YOU ARE A GOD OF OVERFLOW AND BLESSINGS. LORD HELP ME TO PUT TITHING TO THE TEST TO GIVE GLORY TO YOU. SHOW ME HOW I CAN BE A GOOD STEWARD OF WHAT YOU HAVE GIVEN ME!
