Sometimes God speaks so clearly to me through His Word, it stops me dead in my tracks. I read these verses a few weeks after I got married, so… like, 2 months ago, and I can’t move on from this passage –
Will a man rob God? Yet you rob me.
But you ask, ‘How do we rob you?’
“In tithes and offerings. You are under a curse – the whole nation of you – because you are robbing me. 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 enough room for it.”
Wow. I’ve been robbing God of what He deserves. Tithes, yeah… but what about my life? Have I surrendered that fully in all aspects to him, too? Have I surrendered everything that I own (it’s technically God’s anyways) to Him?
“Test me in this” – He’s serious! When I let go and fully obey and have faith… crazy amazing things will happen.
I’ve already meditated so long on this verse, but I need more time to dig into this one… it really blows me away when God speaks!
