THE COURAGE TO GIVE
(#1 Daily Devotional Tract by Dr. Isaiah & Lianna Wealth)
📆 Tuesday, 8th August, 2017.
📜 SCRIPTURAL TEXT:
“But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.”
🔹 🔹 🔹
There is a certain fear that grips the heart of the natural man each time the opportunity to give arises. He first thinks first about what would be left for his own consumption rather than what need his seed would meet and what harvest it would return. This is however not the way of great men.
Great men are not afraid to give because they have the revelation that God is their source, and that they are mere channels through which God provides for His Kingdom on the earth. They also possess the discipline that even if God required that they empty their pockets, they would do so without a second thought knowing that God is able to replenish them with a hundred fold. You also should possess this understanding.
God’s design is that you become bigger, better and greater by what you give, not necessarily what you receive. There is no one who gave for His course, or gave up possessions for His sake that would not reap in this world a hundred fold, just as He promised (Mar. 10:29-30). So get rid of the fear in your heart and give whatever God lays on your heart to give. Give it in faith and your greatness would surely increase. Halleluyah!

🌏 CHRISTIAN MISSION FOCUS
Let’s pray for Panama 🇵🇦…
The nation is almost 100% Christian. Only 3% are unreached with the Gospel. However the Christian body isn’t doing much of missionary work. The main obstacles to greater mission being lack of unity, lack of vision and lack of training.
🙏🏼We are praying for the churches in Panama that their love and desire for God will not go down but wax stronger.
🔹 START-UP PRAYER:
Dear Father, grant me the strength to release my substance whenever there is a call to give in Jesus name.
🔹 PRAYER OF REDEDICATION
Dear Father, I thank you for your mercies over me since the year began. I am grateful for your ever-abiding Presence in me and with me and I declare that my confidence is not in my own ability but in your Word. Help me to walk in faith throughout this month and to show forth your praises in all that I do. I consecrate my whole body, soul and spirit to you today. Let your Name be glorified in me in Jesus Name. Amen.
