Today is a special day for us as Immanuel’s Church family!! Together we are praying and believing the Lord for a total elimination of our debt (and yours). Our goal is to give more than we ever have into the work of the Kingdom. Our meditation for today is Malachi 3. There are so many precious truths unfolded for us in this chapter. It begins with the promise that the Lord, whom we seek and desire, will come to us. It also gives us another exciting promise that as we willingly and obediently give to Him our tithes and offerings, He will “…throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it.” (Yes, indeed He is always “more than enough”). This precious chapter concludes with the Lord writing in His special book of remembrance the names and conversations of each of His treasured children. He obviously loves to hear us speaking often of His goodness and mercy. And because He loves hilarious givers (II Corinthians 9: 6-8), I believe He also records our laugh of faith in giving! Rejoice, dance, laugh and clap for the best is yet to come!
In the days ahead, may all of our ears be open to more clearly hear what His Spirit is saying to His Church. We are living in strategic times, and our prayers must also be specific, determined and boldly based on Scripture. Let’s continue to believe for:
- A national outpouring of His Spirit
- Revival in Israel and the Arab Nations
- The Gospel to penetrate into every unreached people group
You are loved and appreciated, and in the days ahead, you will experience the joy of knowing that He is indeed “More than Enough”.
