Regular tithing and offering to the LORD through your local church helps make His desire a priority in your life. To ignite this in you, confess with your mouth and believe in your heart that Jesus Christ is your Savior. Then, you will help get the gospel message to other people in accordance with His will. Jesus was a giver in every way and taught people to display righteous qualities like justice, mercy, and faith, yet not use those virtues as an excuse for failing to return a rightful portion of our income for gospel ministry like He instructed. If you really want to be like Him, you must apply His teaching to your life. Not in words only, but also in deed. Trust Him to provide in every situation and He will surely give you everything you need for life and godliness. You’ll have abundant and continual harvests to reap. No need to use hook and crook to get things. Pursue intimacy with Him and follow good stewardship instructions and you will receive the desires of His heart for you (and thus your desires).
Never be demanding of Him or have a greedy or envious heart. Live a posture of humility and be content with money and resources He provides. He is always faithful to fulfill His Word, for He delights in the prosperity of His people! We are living witnesses among countless others who tell of His abundant love. We searched for answers to financial problems that hampered us throughout our twenties, but were unable to find them until led to the Bible. It confirmed that God use seemingly foolish, unusual methods to confound the wise. Then He amazes onlookers with results.
There was a man raised in the hood, without a silver spoon in his mouth, whose parent didn’t teach him to earn high income or build wealth. He forsook the will of God for a decade and got himself into a large amount of debt. He realized he was lost eternally, so he accepted Jesus Christ as Savior. This didn’t eliminate the debt burden. Worldly financial solutions did not work for him. He came across biblical financial principles via a financial seminar at His local church. By thirty, he started utilizing the principles. The results have been astounding for this man of low estate. Sixteen years after making God’s financial plan his financial priority, he was giving over 25% of his household income to the church and living debt free and in comfort on 35% of his income. He paid off his home mortgage in thirteen years, amassed a net worth of one-million dollars, was legally paying an extremely low amount of taxes due to high charitable deductions, and helped those in need in ways he wasn’t able to in the past.
As you commit to consistently tithe and give offerings, it will discipline you and produce abundance in your life. Be aware, this principle also works in the opposite direction. When you don’t abundantly give to fulfill the LORD’S purposes, then you cannot expect to abundantly receive from Him!

The book at the link below provides principles and practical steps that help you use the Power To Get Wealth. By 1992, we had $135,000 of debt and a negative $35,000 net worth. Financial bondage and turmoil led me to seek principles and a process for employing good stewardship. As a result, we became constructively debt-free in 1998, mortgage free January 2004, millionaires in 2012, multi-millionaires shortly thereafter, and retired in 2018 in my mid-fifties from public servant jobs while giving abundantly to fund the gospel of our LORD Jesus Christ. The same power is available to you!
