The Woman at the Temple… there were thousands at the temple… but Jesus only mentioned the Old Woman who gave two pennies. She gave everything she had… She gave one hundred percent… She gave her heart. Two pennies is nothing to us. We see it laying on the ground and walk right over it like it is a piece of trash. Yet, for her, it meant her food, her livelihood. She didn’t make hundreds of dollars a day. She had two pennies to her name. And Jesus saw her.
BUT SHE DID NOT KNOW THAT JESUS SAW HER. SHE DID NOT KNOW THAT JESUS WOULD SPEAK OF HER AND USE HER AS THE EXAMPLE FOR ALL THE WORLD THROUGHOUT ALL ETERNITY AS THE EXAMPLE OF HOW TO GIVE. She wasn’t doing it for any other purpose than pure holy worship. He saw her heart. He didn’t talk about who she was giving it to, or what the money was being used for or where it was going… He only said… she gave all she had. He knows our hearts. What is in our hearts… that is what matters.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. If you think you are sick, you will be sick (if you are going through a battle right now, and you are still expecting and looking for that healing to manifest, keep fighting, keep believing.. the answer is on the way. It is a done deal… When Daniel prayed, God sent the answer immediately, but it was held up for more than 20 days because the enemy was fighting with the angel that had the answer. That is Daniel. Your answer is on the way if you have not received it already. Jesus is meeting you where YOUR faith is. You are not the sick trying to get healed. You are the healed resisting sickness. Keep Believing. He is faithful to HIS PROMISES). If you think you are poor, you will be poor. If you think you are bound by some stronghold, then you will be bound…
HE WHOM THE SON HAS SET FREE, IS FREE INDEED. If you believe you are a son of God, You will BE a son of God. If you think you are God’s Masterpiece, YOU will be God’s Masterpiece. Let the past Go. It is dealt with. The past life dominated by sin only ministers death and bondage. It can only shape your future if you allow it. You are redeemed by the blood of the Lamb, You have ETERNAL LIFE. You are recipients of the Grace, Mercy and Love of God. God has revealed the RICHES OF HIS GRACE, MERCY AND SALVATION (FORGIVENESS OF SINS, HEALING, PROSPERITY IN EVERY WAY). IT IS CHRIST IN YOU. See yourself as God sees you… and that is as HIS BELOVED SON, JESUS. That is what Justification is. One day soon your are going to stand before God and you are going to see yourself for the first time the way God has been seeing you all along… and you are going to say… “YOU MEAN TO TELL ME THAT I ALREADY GOT IT AND I HAD IT ALL THIS TIME AND I JUST DIDN’T PERCEIVE IT, I DIDN’T RENEW MY MIND TO IT, SO I DIDN’T CLAIM IT? YOU MEAN TO TELL ME THAT LITTLE BITTY NOTHING DEVIL LIED TO ME AND I BELIEVED IT? YOU MEAN TO TELL ME THAT YOU HAVE BEEN SEEING ME JUST LIKE YOU HAVE BEEN SEEING JESUS THIS WHOLE TIME AND I WAS TOO BLIND BY RELIGION AND MY OWN WORKS TO SEE IT?
AND HE IS GOING TO SAY, “YES. THAT IS CORRECT. HE IS GOING TO SAY, “I BLESSED YOU WITH EVERY SPIRITUAL BLESSING. EVERYTHING THAT I HAVE IN HEAVEN AND EARTH I HAVE GIVEN TO MY SON, AND HE, BECAUSE OF HIS LOVE AND PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS… HAS SHARED IT WITH YOU. MY HEIR-SHIP TO MY SON JESUS HAS BEEN SHARED BY HIM WITH YOU MAKING YOU HIS CO-HEIR AND YOU HAVE HAD IT ALL THIS TIME BECAUSE HE HAS BEEN LIVING IN YOU… When God tell you that… You are going to suddenly think… if I had only spent time in my bible and cultivated my relationship with HIM, MYSELF, instead of depending on other men’s doctrines, I might have gotten somewhere because your word specifically states that I don’t need no man to teach me the ways of the Lord, Spiritual things, because God is in Me, teaching me through His Holy Spirit all things. He reveals the truth of who Jesus is, not just any old thing, but what he hears from GOD. That is powerful. What manner of love is this that we should be called God’s Children.
CHRIST JESUS HAS NOT DEFINED YOUR GIVING EXCLUSIVELY TO YOUR FINANCIAL STEWARDSHIP. HE HAS NOT PLACED A TEN PERCENT TAX ON WHAT HE HAS GIVEN YOU, WITH WHAT YOU ARE BLESSED WITH DAILY. Christ Jesus demands EVERYTHING. HE WANTS EVERYTHING. HE WANTS YOUR HEART, HE WANTS YOUR LIFE, HE WANTS EVERYTHING. He wants you to give joyfully with the right kind of heart. HE HAS GIVEN YOU HIS OWN LIFE, NOW HE WANTS YOURS. HE DOESN’T ASK YOU TO GIVE ALL YOUR MONEY, BUT IN YOUR HEART, ARE YOU PREPARED TO GIVE IT ALL UP?
Is God REALLY Your Source? Are your needs REALLY MET IN HIM? If so, THEN YOU ARE NOT REDUCED TO A TENTH… YOU ARE ESCALATED TO A HUNDREDTH… ONE HUNDRED PERCENT. THAT IS WHAT THE DEMAND IS. GIVE HIM YOUR ALL. GIVE HIM YOUR HEART… WHEN YOU DO THAT, AND YOU RECEIVE THE REVELATION OF HIS LOVE… THEN THERE IS NOTHING THAT IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN THAT… Give and it shall be given back to YOU. You can’t manipulate God with your giving. Everything is God’s already. Giving is about your heart. WHEN YOU ARE ABLE TO GIVE BECAUSE YOU PERCEIVE GOD TRULY AS YOUR SOURCE, THEN YOUR INCREASE WILL MULTIPLY.
RECEIVE THE WORD OF THE LORD…
