GIVE US THE RESOLVE TO GIVE EXPECTANTLY.
2 Corinthians 9:6
“The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.”
The amount we give to the work of God will determine the return we receive from that gift. This does not mean you are guaranteed $2 back from every $1 you give; God’s “return” may come in different forms. However, this is an absolute promise that those who give bountifully to the work of the Lord will not be disappointed. We must give with the expectation that God rewards a faithful giver. Giving to the work of the Lord is the only sure investment.
Father, help me trust this promise. Give me the faith, when I give, to trust that You will reward me and provide for my needs.
Do you give with the confidence that God will bless you? Do you expect God to provide for your needs, to reward your giving, and to use your giving in mighty ways for His work? Today, resolve to give with great expectation.
