THE POWER OF AN OFFERING
(#1 Daily Devotional Tract by Dr. Isaiah & Lianna Wealth)
🗓 Sunday, 18th June, 2017.
📜 SCRIPTURAL TEXT:
(2 Chronicles 1:6-7)
_”And Solomon went up thither to the brasen altar before the LORD, which was at the tabernacle of the congregation, and offered a thousand burnt offerings upon it. In that night did God appear unto Solomon, and said unto him, ask what I shall give thee.”

An offering is substance wrapped with praise and thanksgiving (2Chron. 32:2). By substance, we mean something that has value to you. Offerings give you access to God; an opportunity to make your request known unto Him. This is clearly seen from today’s scriptural text where Solomon offered to God a sacrifice and set Himself up for an encounter.
More so, in giving an offering to God, it is important to give what is commensurate with what He has blessed you with. Jesus adjudged the widow who gave two mites to have given the best offering In Mark 12:43-44, because she gave much though she had little. Thus we see that the value of an offering before God is measured in terms of what you give over what you have, not just how much you give. Halleluyah!
However, the reward of an offering is not just an access, it is wealth. This explains why God gave Solomon wealth even though he only asked for wisdom (2Chron. 1:8-12). Take your offering system seriously this season, knowing that your wealth is tied to it. You would only reap what you have sown.

🌍 CHRISTIAN MISSION FOCUS
Let’s pray for Niger 🇳🇪…
Over 97% of its population are Muslims. 76% are unreached with the Gospel. Poverty and illiteracy are severe limitations and the enforcement of sharia law threatens the preaching and prevalence of the Gospel.
🙏🏼We are praying for the doors of the Gospel to be opened in the nation.
🔹 START-UP PRAYER:
Dear Father, grant me the revelation of giving and strengthen me to give constantly in Jesus name.
🔹 PRAYER OF REDEDICATION
Dear Father, I thank you for your love towards me and for making available to me all things that pertains to this life and godliness. Because you are a good God, you have prepared a great future for me and given me your Holy Spirit to guide and teach me to excel in all I do. So, I yield my body, soul and spirit wholly to you this day; order my steps oh Lord and have your way in me in Jesus Name. Amen
