Good Morning! Just the other day, my oldest son was asking me about tithing and it’s purpose. These scriptures in Malachi & 2 Corinthians, have always been my favorite because as a little girl, we said it every Sunday before tithes and offerings. I broke down the Scriptures for him, so that he knows what it means to give joyfully vs of necessity. He referenced the widow who tithed all she had. (He had studied prior to asking.) Then his face changed when I emphasized how God will pour out a blessing so big, that there won’t be room enough to receive it. I further explained how a blessing can be anything (not limited to $$) and I gave him examples of the blessings that God has poured out for our family. My son asked how much do we give? I said, all God is asking for is 10%. So if you make $10, you set aside $1 for God. His response; That’s it?! That’s easy!
Indeed, it is. God Bless your day, every one!
Malachi 3:8-10King James Version (KJV)
8 Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings.
9 Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation.
10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.
2 Corinthians 9:6-7
6 But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.
7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.
“But he was wounded for our transgressions; he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.” (Isaiah 53:5 KJV) It was the sacrifice that Jesus made for us through his death, taking our sins as his own that we can become free. Our prayers are heard in Heaven and we can know that we can ask for the blessings of life from God. God wants us to be happy and peaceful, and in times of trouble, when we call upon him, we can be sure that he will lift us up and keep us safe. Heaven thinks in terms of abundance, not scarcity. God wants us to call on him to ask for his help when we are facing issues such as job loss, relationship difficulties and illness. He is our Heavenly Father and he wants all of his children to be happy and well. God gave his only begotten son for our salvation. What more proof do we need of his love for us? http://wp.me/P1I3KO-y5s
So, visualize that which you pray for as already being in existence and have faith in our All-Powerful and loving God, who cares for the birds of the sky and the flowers of the fields. There is none above him! He is Alpha and Omega! Almighty and worthy to be praised! Free your mind of the ‘scarcity’ thinking and of the negative emotions which hold us back. Strive to think as Christ; sending love, peace, kindness and temperance to everyone we encounter. Every day is a new day made for new things! Allow yourself to see your dreams of happiness manifested through the love and power of God, your Father!
Meditation for Day Six
Relax through the circular breathing you have been practicing for the past few days. Allow your mind to drift gently. See yourself as though from above. See how happy you are! See how healthy you are! Now see your family. See how happy and at peace they are! Extend your thinking, sending love, peace and light to everyone on the Earth. Now bring your mind back to your family. Visualize a situation that is causing you concern. Allow yourself to feel that concern for just a moment then blow it out with your breath. Feel the worry leave and float away. Now visualize that situation as you would choose it to be. http://wp.me/p1I3KO-ACb
It could be enjoying a deeper love with your spouse. It could be health for your child. It could be the offer of a great new job. It could be leaving debt behind. See it! Feel it!! Know it is real!!! Thank God for his many blessings. Leave the worries with Him and return to the present knowing that you can return to the happy visualization at any time and that it will be realized.

New mercies renewed give us memento, instant change as well as daily allowance to things that need to be changed. We don’t have to wait for new years to be motivated to change anything. Change is given through the Grace of Christ and the GIFT of the Holy Spirit…
Lamentation 3:23 Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning.
Won’t you use your gift more? Be compelled to press in and press forward to bring the birth of new creations through the power of intercession and the Holy One that lives within you. Mary was no exception to the birth of the Christ spirit she was the beginning of understanding the birth and nature of Christ along with the demonstration of the spiritual process that comes to man and woman daily. She was privileged and understood the gift of God that laid in her womb. For this reason we are granted the gift of life In Christ with the ability to wake up with new mercies and the gift of God being securely tucked away safe within us walking the experience and journey out with us. Amen! IJN !
