Small Things PT2

“Small & Little Things” Pt 2

Song of Solomon 2:15 “Little foxes spoil the vines”…

THE WORD (LITTLE) IS IN THE BIBLE 242 TIMES (SMALL) 97 TIMES.

Job 8:7 Though your beginning was small, Yet your latter end would increase abundantly.

Zch 4:10 For who has despised the day of small things?

SMALL THINGS CAN BE OPPORTUNITIES OR SNARES!

Matt 13:31 JESUS REFERING TO THE KINGDOM SAID, “It’s like a mustard seed which a man sowed in his field…least of all seeds but it becomes the greatest”

7 SMALL THINGS THAT CREATE GREAT SUCCESS!

1. A WRITTEN LIST OF YOUR DAILY GOALS

2. WORDS
James 3:5 “So also the tongue is a small part of the body, and yet it boasts of great things. See how great a forest is set aflame by such a small fire!”

Prov 16:24 Pleasant words are a honeycomb, Sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.

WORDS CREATE REALTIONSHIPS OR DESTROY THEM
WORDS CAN BE WALLS OR BECOME BRIDGES
WORDS ARE THE SEEDS FOR FEELINGS
WORDS AFFECT ENVIRONMENTS
WORDS CAN MOVE MOUNTAINS
WORDS CAN MOTIVATE OR DEMOTIVATE
WORDS REVEAL RESPECT

Matt 12:37 “For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”

3. QUESTIONS

QUESTONS – ASKING – REVEALS HUMILITY.

Matt 7:8 “For everyone who asks receives”

YOU WON’T DISCOVER IMPORTANT THINGS ABOUT YOURSELF UNLESS YOU ASK YOURSELF SOME IMPORTANT QUESTIONS.

WHAT ARE 3 WAYS I CAN INCREASE MY INCOME?

WHAT ARE SOME THINGS THAT I NEED TO CHANGE?

4. YOUR DAILY APPOINTMENT WITH GOD

TO LOVE SOMETHING IS TO FIND IT VALUABLE TO RESPECT SOMETHING IS TO FIND IT IRREPLACEABLE

GET CONCIOUS OF THE HELPER THE FIRST THING IN THE MORNING.

THE PRINCIPLE OF FIRST MATTERS IN EVERYTHING..

WORK ON GIVING GOD THE FIRST 10 MINUTES OF YOUR DAY.

SEED YOUR DAY WITH HIS PRESENCE

5. INSTRUCTIONS

WHATEVER GOD ASKS YOU TO DO YOU CAN DO IT.

THE INSTRUCTIONS WE RECEVIE ARE SOMETIMES SO SMALL WE SEE THEM AS INSIGNIFICANT

WHAT INSTRUTIONS HAVE YOU IGNORED?

A SMALL LEAK CAN SINK A SHIP…

6. MOMENTS

LEARN TO RECOGNIZE A MOMENT

BLIND BARTIMEOUS, THE WOMAN WITH THE ISSUE OF BLOOD.

7. EXPECTATION

OUR EXPECTATION IS WHAT PLEASES GOD… NOT JUST THE ACTION OF FAITH.

ORAL ROBERTS SAID, If I was on my death bed the last thing I would want you to know is, “Your miracle is coming towards you or passing you by”…

YOU WILL NEVER SEE WHAT YOU ARE NOT LOOKING FOR.

YOU MUST DEVELOP A SUSTAINED EXPECTATION.

Heb 11:6 And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.

EXPECTATION IS A SMALL THING BUT IT’S MAGNETIC…

EXPECTATION CREATES THE FEELINGS THAT YOU WANT TO HAPPEN IN THE FUTURE.

Heir of all things

“Heir of all things”

NAS Heb 1:1God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions (DISPENSATIONS – ADMINISTRATIONS) and in many ways, (OLD TESTAMENT) 2 in these last days (NEW TESTAMENT) has spoken to us (CHURCH) in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world.

THERE WAS A SPECIFIC POINT IN TIME WHEN HE WAS APPOINTED HEIR OF ALL THINGS.

Col 1:12 joyously giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in Light.
13 For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. 15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation.16 For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him. 17 He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.

THE SON CREATED ALL THINGS BEFORE HE BECAME A MAN.

Micah 5:2 His goings forth are from long ago, From the days of eternity.”

Isa 9:6 For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders;

WHEN JESUS WAS BORN INTO THIS WORLD HE WASN’T BORN AS GOD. AS GOD, HE HAS FOREVER EXISTED.

JESUS IS THE NAME FOR HIS HUMANITY. CHRIST IS A TITLE FOR HIS DEITY!

EVERYONE BORN INTO THIS EARTH IS BORN ENSLAVED AND NEEDS A REDEEMER

Rom 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death,”

*GOD DID NOT GO TO THE CROSS THE HUMANITY OF JESUS DID.

Col 1:17 He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. 18 He is also head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that He Himself will come to have first place in everything.

19 For it was the Father’s good pleasure for all the fullness to dwell in Him, 20 and through Him to reconcile all things to Himself, having made peace through the blood of His cross; through Him, I say, whether things on earth or things in heaven.

HE CREATED ALL THINGS AS DIETY BUT THE TIME CAME WHEN HE WOULD HAVE TO RECONCILE ALL THOSE THINGS AND DID IT AS HUMANITY ON THE CROSS.

21 And although you were formerly alienated and hostile in mind, engaged in evil deeds, 22 yet He has now reconciled you in His fleshly body through death, in order to present you before Him holy and blameless and beyond reproach—

Heb 1:2 in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things,

THERE CAME A SPECIFIC POINT IN TIME WHEN JESUS WAS APPOINTED HEIR OF ALL THINGS.

Heb 1 is the coronation service

Heb 1:5-13 IS EVERYTHING THE FATHER SAID TO THE SON THAT DAY.
7 statements he made to Jesus and every one of them came from the old testament.

ON THAT DAY HE MADE JESUS, IN HIS HUMANITY HEIR OF EVERYTHING HE HAD MADE IN HIS DEITY!

ROMANS 8:16 SAY’S, “THAT HEIRSHIP IS BASED ON BIRTH”… “IF CHILDREN, THEN HEIRS”.

JESUS COULD NOT BECOME THE HEIR OF ALL THINGS UNTIL HE BECAME A MAN BORN INTO THIS EARTH

Heb 1:4 “having become as much better than the angels, as He has inherited a more excellent name than they.”

“Small Things” Pt 1

Small Things

THE WORD (LITTLE) IS IN THE BIBLE 242 TIMES (SMALL) 97 TIMES.

Job 8:7 Though your beginning was small, Yet your latter end would increase abundantly.

Zch 4:10 For who has despised the day of small things?

LITTLE THINGS CAN BE OPPORTUNITIES OR SNARES!

VICTORY COMES IN SMALL STEPS! Exodus 23:30 “Little by little”
TRAGETY AND POVERTY COMES IN SMALL STEPS!
Prov 6:10-11
Ylt Song of Solomon 2:15 Seize ye for us foxes, Little foxes–destroyers of vineyards

LITTLE THINGS CAN BE OPPORTUNITIES OR SNARES

Prov 30:24-28 Four things are small on the earth, But they are
exceedingly wise: (WISDOM CAN COME IN SMALL PACKAGES)
The ants are not a strong people, But they prepare their food in the summer; The shephanim are not mighty people, Yet they make their houses in the rocks; The locusts have no king, Yet all of them go out in ranks; The lizard you may grasp with the hands, Yet it is in kings’ palaces.

SMALL THINGS BECOME GREAT THINGS!
Isa 60:22 The smallest one will become a clan, And the least one a mighty nation. I, the Lord, will hasten it in its time.”

Mic 5:2 But as for you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, Too little to be among the clans of Judah, From you One will go forth for Me to be ruler in Israel.

GOD USES LITTLE THINGS TO ACCOMPLISH GREAT THINGS!
Matt 15:34 FEED A MULTITUDE WITH 7 LOAVES & A FEW SMALL FISH

LITTLE SEEDS OF KINDNESS CREATE RECOGNITION AND PROMOTION
Matt 10:42 And whoever in the name of a disciple gives to one of these little ones even a cup of cold water to drink, truly I say to you, he shall not lose his reward.”

YOUR ATTENTION TO LITTLE THINGS IS HOW GOD QUALIFIES YOU FOR OWNERSHIP.
Luke 19:17 And he said to him, ‘Well done, good slave, because you have been faithful in a very little thing, you are to be in authority over ten cities.’

A LITTLE WRONG ENFLUENCE CAN DESTROY YOUR ENTIRE LIFE
1 Cor 5:6 Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump of dough?

Gal 5:7-9 You were running well; who hindered you from obeying the truth? This persuasion did not come from Him who calls you. A little leaven leavens the whole lump of dough. LITTLE THINGS MATTER!

EXCELLENCE IN SMALL THINGS BIRTHS GREAT PROMOTION!

1. A WRITTEN LIST OF YOUR DAILY GOALS

WHAT YOU’RE DOING TODAY IS DETERMINING YOUR FUTURE.

GOALS GIVE YOUR FAITH AND INSTRUCTION!

GOALS UNCLUTER YOUR LIFE OF SECONDARY THINGS!

GOALS DISTINGUISH ENEMIES FROM FRIENDS!

GOALS ARE CRITICAL TO SUCCESS!

GOALS ARE THE ONLY EXIT FROM YOUR PAST!

GOALS MUST BE BIG ENOUGH TO DOMINATE YOUR CONVERSATON!

Hab 2:2 Write the vision And make it plain on tablets That he may run who reads it.
WHAT YOU SEE DETERMINES WHAT YOU FEEL. WHAT YOU FEEL DETERMINES WHAT YOU DO!

THE GREATEST CATALYST TO GOALS IS THAT IT UNLEASHES YOUR ENERGY.

GOALS ARE WHAT DISTINGUISH YOU FROM OTHERS!

DON’T WRITE DOWN WHAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO DO. WRITE DOWN WHAT YOU CAN DO AND WILL DO!

MIRACLES AND BLESSINGS PT 6

“Abraham’s Example of Faithfulness & Blessing”

Eph 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,

Prov. 28:20 A faithful man will abound with blessings

Genisis 12-14 – THE FAITHFULNESS OF ABRAHAM
Galatians 3:7 Those who are of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham

ABRAHAM IS A PICTURE OF FAITHFULNESS

NKJ Gen. 12:1 Now the Lord had said to Abram: “Get out of your country, from your family and from your father’s house, to a land that I will show you.

FAITHFULNESS BEGINS WITH YOUR CALLING

THE WORLD DOES NOT HAVE A CALLING ON THEIR LIFE. THEY HAVE NO PURPOSE AND NO MISSION!

2 I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing.

DON’T LET THE DEVIL DISCOURAGE YOU IN YOUR CALLING. YOUR CALLING IS VERY IMPORTANT…

BLESSINGS COME WHEN YOU GET IN YOUR CALLING.

THE SON’S OF KORA SAID, “I’D RATHER BE A DOORKEEPER IN THE HOUSE OF GOD THAN TO DWELL IN THE TENTS OF WICKEDNESS”

4 So Abram departed as the Lord had spoken to him

7 Then the Lord appeared to Abram and said, “to your descendants I will give this land.” And there he built an altar to the lord, who had appeared to him.

1. HE OBEYED HIS CALLING
2. HE BUILT AN ALTAR

FAITHFULNESS IS SEEN IN MY WORSHIP.

NIV ROM. 12:12 Be faithful in prayer.

WHEN YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO BUILD AN ALTAR

THIS ALSO RELATES TO THE ASSEMBLING OF OURSELVES TOGETHER FOR WORSHIP

NLT Heb 10:25 And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage and warn each other, especially now that the day of his coming back again is drawing near.

Gen. 13:2 Abram was very rich in livestock, in silver, and in gold.

1. HE WAS FAITHFUL TO HIS CALLING
2. HE WAS FAITHFUL TO HIS WORSHIP
3. ABRAHAM WAS VERY RICH AND STAYED FAITHFUL IN BLESSING

IN CHAPTER 13:5 THAT LOT ALSO HAD FLOCKS AND HEARDS AND TENTS

THE FACT THAT YOU HAVE MONEY DOES NOT MEAN NUMBER ONE THAT YOU ARE IN THE WILL OF GOD…
IT DOES NOT MEAN NUMBER TWO THAT YOU ARE UNDER THE BLESSING OF GOD…

PEOPLE WILL FOLLOW A TRAIL OF SUCCESS TO A POINT WHERE THEY ARE DECIEVED INTO THINKING THEY DON’T NEED GOD.

YOU NEED TO CHOOSE PRINCIPLE OVER PROFIT

UNTIL YOU ARE FAITHFUL AND MAKE A DECESION FOR PRINCIPLE OVER PROFIT GOD CANNOT SHOW YOU THE FULLNESS OF HIS VISION FOR YOUR LIFE

GEN 14:18 Then Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine; He was the priest of God Most High. 19 And he blessed him and said: “blessed be Abram of God Most High, possessor of heaven and earth; 20 And blessed be God Most High, who has delivered your enemies into your hand.” and he gave him a tithe of all.

THIS IS A SYMBOL OF FAITHFULNESS

MY TITHE IS NOT AS IMPORTANT TO GOD AS IT IS TO ME – IT IS A STATEMENT OF MY FAITHFULNESS TO THE LORD

BE FAITHFUL TO GOD AND HE WILL GIVE YOU A DOUBLE PORTION

21 Now the king of Sodom said to Abram, “give me the persons, and take the goods for yourself.” 22 But Abram said to the king of Sodom, “I have raised my hand to the Lord, God Most High, the possessor of heaven and earth, 23 that I will take nothing, from a thread to a sandal strap, and that I will not take anything that is yours, lest you should say, “I have made Abram rich’—

IF YOU DON’T LIVE BY PRINCIPLE, PEOPLE WILL OWN YOU WITH THEIR SIN AND UNCLEANESS

Gen 15:1 After these things the word of the lord came to Abram in a vision, saying, “do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.”

Psa 63:1 O God, thou art my god; early will i seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; 2 To see thy power and thy glory, so as i have seen thee in the sanctuary.

1. HUNGER AND THIRST

mess Psa. 63:1 God—you’re my god! I can’t get enough of you! I’ve worked up such hunger and thirst for God, traveling across dry and weary deserts. 2 So here I am in the place of worship, eyes open,
drinking in your strength and glory. 3 In your generous love I am really living at last! My lips brim praises like fountains 4 I bless you every time I take a breath; my arms wave like banners of praise to you.

Matt 5:6 “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.

James 4:8 Draw near to god and he will draw near to you.

2. PRAYER

PRAYER IS A RESULT OF BEING HUNGRY

WE ARE TO SEEK THE LORD WITH ALL OUR HEART.
IF YOU GET HUNGRY ENOUGH FOR GOD YOU WILL GET BUSY PRAYING

THE PLACE OF PRAYER IS WHERE YOU PRESS AND CONTEND FOR THE GLORY

Psa 34:1 I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth. 2 My soul shall make its boast in the Lord; The humble shall hear it and rejoice. 3 O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together.
4 I sought the Lord, and he answered me, and delivered me from all my fears. 5 They looked to him and were radiant, and their faces shall never be ashamed.

YNG PSA. 34:5 They looked expectingly unto him, and they became bright, and their faces are not ashamed.

3. FAITH

YOU SHOULD BE PRAYING, SAYING AND BELIEVING

Heb 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

FAITH IS MANIFESTED IN EXPECTATION

THERE IS POWER IN EXPECTATION

4. REVERENCE

Psa 89:7 God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints, and to be had in reverence of all them that are about him.

Heb 12:28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve god acceptably with reverence and godly fear:

MESS Heb 12:28 Do you see how thankful we must be? not only thankful, but brimming with worship, deeply reverent before god.

5. OBEDIENCE

ANOTHER WORD FOR OBEDIENCE IS YEILDING!

Rom 6:13 Yield yourselves unto god, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto god.

19 Now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.

ONE ACT OF OBEDIENCE DOES NOT ADD UP TO A WALK OF OBEDIENCE.

OBEDIENCE WILL COST YOU SOMETHING…

AMP Psa 27:4 One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will i seek, inquire for, and [insistently] require: That i may dwell in the house of the Lord [in his presence] all the days of my life, to behold and gaze upon the beauty [the sweet attractiveness and the delightful loveliness] of the Lord and to meditate, consider, and inquire in his temple.† 5 For in the day of trouble he will hide me in his shelter; In the secret place of his tent will he hide me; He will set me high upon a rock. 6 And now shall my head be lifted up above my enemies round about me; In his tent I will offer sacrifices and shouting of joy; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the Lord. 7 Hear, O Lord, when i cry aloud; Have mercy and be gracious to me and answer me! 8 You have said, seek my face [inquire for and require my presence as your vital need]. My heart says to you, your face (your presence), Lord, will i seek, inquire for, and require [of necessity and on the authority of your word].

“Faithfulness and Blessing”

Eph 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,

PROV. 28:20 A FAITHFUL MAN WILL ABOUND WITH BLESSINGS

FAITHFULNESS IS A PART OF THE CHARACTER OF GOD

LAM. 3:23 GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS.

HIS NAME IS EVEN CALLED FAITHFUL AND TRUE (REV 19:11)

FAITHFULNESS MEANS; A TOTAL DEPENDABILITY

HEBREW AND GREEK DEFINE FAITHFULNESS AS (TRUSTWORTHYNESS, STEADIENESS, A CONDITION OF BEING DEPENDABLE, NON MOVEMENT, HONESTY AND TRUTHFULNESS, OPERATING IN A CONDITION OF REALITY).

FAITHFULNESS TOUCHES YOUR FAMILY, YOUR MARRIAGE, YOUR COMMITMENT TO YOUR SPOUSE, YOUR JOB, YOUR BUISNESS, YOUR CHILDREN, YOUR MINISTRY

Luke 16:10 “He who is faithful in a very little thing is faithful also in much; And he who is unrighteous in a very little thing is unrighteous also in much. 11 “If therefore you have not been faithful in the use of unrighteous mammon, who will entrust the true riches to you? 12 “And if you have not been faithful in the use of that which is anothers, who will give you that which is your own?

Luke 19:16 “And the first appeared, saying, ‘Master, your mina has made ten minas more.’ 17 “And he said to him, ‘well done, good slave, because you have been faithful in a very little thing, be in authority over ten cities.

FAITHFULNESS IS AN AUTOMATIC THING – WHEN YOU ARE FAITHFUL, THE BLESSING OF GOD WILL COME UPON YOU.

2TIM. 2:2 And the things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, these entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also.

FAITHFULNESS GIVES ME A PLATFORM WITH WHICH TO TEACH YOU

AN ELDER IS TO BE A PERSON OF EXAMPLE

3 ILLUSTRATIONS HERE OF FAITHFULNESS

AN OCCUPATION OF A SOLDIER
3 Suffer hardship with me, as a good soldier of Christ Jesus.

Rev 2:10 Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.

THE 2ND OCCUPATION IS THE ATHLETE Vs 5
2Tim 2:5 And also if anyone competes as an athlete, he does not win the prize unless he competes according to the rules.

FAITHFULNESS IS ALSO THAT I AM COMPLIANT TO THE RULES THAT I’VE BEEN GIVEN

THE 3RD OCCUPATION IS THE FARMER Vs 6
6 The hard-working farmer ought to be the first to receive his share of the crops.

1. THE SOLDIER IS FAITHFUL IN BATTLE, COURAGOUS AND WILLING TO DIE – NOT DISTRACTED
2. AN ATHLET THAT’S METICULOUS ABOUT KEEPING THE RULES AND DOING IT RIGHT – HE’S DISCIPLINED
3. A FARMER WHO WORKS VERY HARD FROM THE TIME HE CULTIVATES TO THE TIME HE HARVESTS

PLANTING AND CULTIVATING IS WORK

WHAT I PUT INTO SOMETHING IS EXACTLY WHAT I’M GOING TO GET OUT OF IT.

GOING THE EXTRA MILE, GETTING MORE TRAINING WILL ALWAYS PAY OFF.

MIRACLES ARE NOT THE ULTIMATE FOR YOU BUT THEY ARE THE JUMPSTART TO GET YOU INTO GOD’S BLESSINGS

GOD PREDISTINED US TO BE BLESSED!

YOU STAY IN THE SUPERNATURAL BY STAYING IN FAITH.

Gen 1:27 God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
28 God blessed them; and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

TO BLESS: IS TO EMPOWER TO PROSPER, EXCEL, SUCCEED…

WHATEVER YOU ARE CALLED TO DO YOU ARE EMPOWERED TO DO IT

Deut 8:18 remember the Lord your God, for it is He who is giving you power to make wealth, that He may confirm His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.

Prov 10:22 It is the blessing of the Lord that makes rich, And He adds no sorrow to it.

TOO MANY ARE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET MORE MONEY WHEN THEY SHOULD BE TRYING TO UNDERSTAND HOW TO WALK IN THE BLESSING & BLESSINGS…

THAT BLESSING IS CONNECTED TO YOUR MANDATE AND VISION…

SUCCESS IS DOING WHAT GOD HAS CALLED YOU TO DO

ADAM HAD ASSIGNMENTS
Gen 1:29 Then God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the surface of all the earth, and every tree which has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you;

THE NUMBER 1 INGREDIENT GOD SHARES WITH ADAM FOR IGNITING THE BLESSING IS SEED.
(LAW OF SEEDTIME & HARVEST)

THERE’S PROGRESSION; BLESSING, VISION, & SEED

2 OF THE MOST POWERFUL THINGS YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND IS THE BLESSING OF GOD AND THE LAW OF SEED TIME AND HARVEST

GOD HAS ALWAYS INTENDED FOR MAN TO BE A SEED SOWER.
(Gal 6:9, Eph 6:8, 2 Cor 9)

THIS MEAN’S THAT MAN WOULD BE IN CHARGE OF HIS OWN DESTINY

Prov 11:24 There is one who scatters, and yet increases all the more, And there is one who withholds what is justly due, and yet it results only in want. (2 PEOPLE – CONTROLING THEIR DESTINIES)

NLT Give freely and become more wealthy; Be stingy and lose everything.

Mess The world of the generous gets larger and larger; The world of the stingy gets smaller and smaller.

YOU ARE TO BE MINDFUL OF BEING A BLESSING AND SOWING BECAUSE YOU ARE CULTIVATING A LIFESTYLE OF GENEROSITY

Prov 11:25 The generous man will be prosperous, And he who waters will himself be watered. He who withholds grain, the people will curse him,

Amp The generous man [is a source of blessing and] shall be prosperous and enriched, And he who waters will himself be watered [reaping the generosity he has sown].

NLT 2 Cor 9:10 For God is the one who provides seed for the farmer and then bread to eat. In the same way, he will provide and increase your resources and then produce a great harvest of generosity in you.

NAS Now He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness;

11 You will be enriched in everything (NLT Every way) for all liberality, which through us is producing thanksgiving to God.

NLT Prov 3:9 Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the best part of everything you produce. Then he will fill your barns with grain, and your vats will overflow with good wine.
