KEYS TO FRUITFULNESS (The Covenant of Tithing) By Sam Korankye Ankrah
KEYS TO FRUITFULNESS
(The Covenant of Tithing)
Praise the Lord!
Today we shall consider our next key to fruitfulness: Tithing.
“And this stone which I have set as a pillar shall be God’s house, and of all that You give me I will surely give a tenth to You.”
Tithe is the tenth of what a person earns. Everything we own or blessed with are from God, and by giving a tenth back to Him, we are acknowledging that He is the source of it all.
This was a principle that characterised the Covenant relationship of Abraham, Isaac and Israel with God. For as God blessed them, they gave, and He blessed them the more.
7 Covenant Blessings from Tithing:
In Malachi 3:10-12, God pronounced some blessings that you shall experience when you obey and follow the covenant principle and practice of honouring your tithe.
1. Constant source of supply
“I will open the windows of heaven …”
2. You shall be blessed bountifully
“I will pour out for you a blessing …!”
3. Abundance and overflow
“There shall be no room enough to receive …”
4. Covering and deliverance
“I will rebuke the Devourer for your sakes …”
5. Profit or productivity (no losses nor failure)
“Nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field …”
6. Fame and Influence
“All nations will call you blessed …”
7. Become an example to many
“For you will be a delightful land”
Tithing is simply putting God first in all you do. This reinforces your fellowship with Him and attracts His attention for more blessings and fruitfulness.
I entreat you to follow this principle, hold on to God’s covenant promises, and see His blessings unfold in your life.
God bless you. I love you.
