Attitude… Does it matter?
Exodus 35:4, 10
God wants to prosper His people. It is not His intention, however, for this wealth to be spent on our own lusts or to gratify our flesh. This is to finance the revival that is coming on this planet. But where will God get the money? There is a scripture being fulfilled today on our behalf saying the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just (Proverbs 13:22). The Amplified Bible says that it will eventually find its way into our hands. The world is no longer going to be a reservoir for Satan to withhold money that belongs to the body of Christ.
But the way God sets you up for this transfer is by asking you to give with a grateful heart, even when it looks as if you have nothing to give. Let’s look at Exodus 35:4, 10:
“And Moses spake unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, saying, This is the thing which the Lord commanded, saying, Take ye from among you an offering unto the Lord: whosoever is of a WILLING HEART, let him bring it, an offering of the Lord…And every wisehearted among you shall come.” “Wisehearted” people are people who obey God.
Verses 21-22 say, “And they came, every one whose heart stirred him up, and every one whom his spirit made willing, and they brought the Lord’s offering to the work of the tabernacle of the congregation, and for all His service, and for the holy garments. And they came, both men and women, as many as were willing hearted, and brought bracelets, and earrings, and rings, and tablets, all jewels of gold.” Notice their attitude! They were willing to obey God.
In Exodus 36:3 we see that Moses received the offering the children of Israel brought. They were being obedient to the word of the prophet. Finally in verse 5 it says, “And they spake unto Moses, saying, ‘The people bring MUCH MORE THAN ENOUGH for the service of the work, which the Lord commanded to make.’”
These people were so willing to obey God that they gave more than enough. They weren’t selfish but gracious, and God was well pleased with them. Don’t ever say that you don’t have anything to give. You do. You have stuff! All God wants is for you to be willing to give what you have and He’ll bless it back to you over and over again.
If you are obedient to God and sow in famine, then He will speak to your finances. He’ll do it with just as much power as when He said, “Let there be light,” He’s going to say, “Prosperity, come.” Satan cannot stop the return from coming into your hands!
In Deuteronomy 28, God commands blessings upon those who obey Him. Victory will come. God is rebuking the devourer and commanding the blessing of Isaac upon all who are obedient to sow in famine. Sow your seed and keep on sowing and watch God move supernaturally on your behalf.
