Praise Session

I just want to take this blog and give God the glory and praise He is due. I am so humbled by all my blessings right now. Obedience is the key. Not questions. Lately, I have been giving my problems completely to God. Which has been hard for me because I am the type that has to always have a back up plan. Praise be to God that He has shown me the right way. I completely let go. I no longer wonder, if I give this amount away, how will I get my bills paid? I no longer wonder, if I take on this large project Lord how will things come together? Instead I say thank you God for this opportunity. Thank you Lord that you have blessed me without me having to do a thing but believe. My family needed a new stove. I prayed to God for it. I gave to church my tithe when I could've been saving. But I believe in what the Bible says. Over the course of a few weeks, I was given a new stove, new furniture, new clothes and coats for my kids, new microwave, lamps, blankets and bunkbeds! Believe me when I say, this woman came to me and my husband and asked us to write a list of things we needed. I didn't indicate that I needed anything to anyone but the Lord and neither did my husband. I know now never to worry whether me or my family will be taken care of. If I truly believe the love God has for us I will not doubt again. Hallelujah!

He is able to do exceedingly abundantly beyond all that we ask or think according to His works in us! (Ephesians 3:20-21)

I pray that your faith grows strong when you doubt in life you doubt God's promises to you.

Telika,
You just have no idea how moved and inspired I am by your writing! I am young in the faith (but not in age...29!), but I believe so strongly in the Word. I am growing everyday. Recently I have been through some of the hardest trials of my life, but I held on to Jesus even when I wasn't sure I could see Him. Sure enough, I am facing my adversity, one problem (and prayer) at a time. I read your blog everyday, as part of the quiet time I take every morning to read scripture and other spiritual writing. Thank you for sharing your beautiful gift.

Telika I am so glad christians stepped up to help you when you were in need, However It had NOTHING to do with you tithing. Matt: 25:31-45 is what christianiy is all about. Helping others. God Does not need your money.. he wants your life.
God Bless

David,
I believe when you show God that you trust Him and not money He will reward you for your faith. By giving your money away in a tithe first you are saying that God is the one that helps you not the money. Also why not give to the church and help them with the ministry of God?
"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." Malachi 3:10
