DEEPER IN THE WORD for September 2022             

 



   God's Financial 

    Commitments 

        to You! 



  by Jeanne Alcott

 

     There are seven commitments God makes in His Word to you concerning your finances.  Do you realize how committed God is to your financial well-being?  I believe when you hear these, your faith is going to be sparked to believe these are really going to happen in your life.  It will become evident God is good to you and wants you to succeed.    

      Commitment #1:  “I fill your storage places with plenty and give you new supply as you honor Me with your firstfruits.”  (Ref. Proverbs 3:9, 10.)

     Notice the word plenty there.  God promises to fill your life with PLENTY which means abundance.  Have you ever said to someone after they offered you more food or something to drink, “Oh, I don’t need any.  I’ve got plenty”?  You wish you could say that about your finances, don’t you?  Well God is saying that’s what you’ll have as you honor Him with your firstfruits.

      The term firstfruits may sound funny to us today, but it means the principal part—the first part of your life which includes your finances, your time, your love, your desire, your attention.  When we give God the firstfruits of all of us, then we can expect plenty!  Abundance!  The scripture says it will also be a continuous new supply.  We’ll always have a supply to meet our needs.

      Commitment #2:  “I put prosperity and welfare in your house as you revere and worship Me and delight in My commandments.”  (Ref. Psalm 112:1-3.)

      A study of this scripture shows that it refers directly to wealth.  God will give us wealth as we delight in His commandments.  If we don’t have our minds and our hearts set on His commandments as being a delight to us to follow—even the hard things to do—we will not realize the wealth to which He is referring here.  God will not bless disobedience with His wealth.  Proverbs 13:21 says, “Adversity pursues sinners, but the [consistently] upright will be rewarded with prosperity.”

      Now some believers may have a problem with having wealth here on earth, but we are going to need His wealth so we can accomplish all He will call us to do for Him to further His kingdom.  It takes wealth!

      Commitment #3:  “I keep you alive in famine as you hope in My mercy and loving-kindness.”  (Ref. Psalm 33:18, 19.)

      When the world has famine—a critical shortage of anything—God will keep us alive and operating as we put our hope in His mercy and loving-kindness to do so.  When famine or a shortage hits, our fear doesn’t hit us.  Fear causes us not to hope in God and therefore we walk out of His promised blessings.  We have to have faith in famine not fear in famine in order to be kept alive and prosper.

      Commitment #4:  “I give you every earthly blessing in abundance so you may be self-sufficient in every good work and charitable donation.”  (Ref. II Corinthians 9:7, 8.)

      Being self-sufficient indicates begin independent of external circumstances.  So whatever happens in the world, we can still be self-sufficient through God’s blessings on our lives.  The tense in this scripture emphasizes the continual ability of God.  In other words, God will never run out of His abundance to bless us and have to say, “Sorry, I’ve run out.  I can’t bless you anymore.”  No, He stands ready at all times to help His children and supply in abundance what they need.  We will be able to give to others and help and give charitable donations to God’s work as well as have our own needs met.

      Commitment #5:  “I liberally supply all your need according to My riches as you give offerings.”  (Ref. Philippians 4:15-19.)

      The apostle Paul wrote this to the Philippian believers.  They had given sacrificially to help him further the gospel and now they could expect God to supply all their need according to His magnificent wealth.

      Commitment #6:  “I delight in your prosperity as you take pleasure in My righteousness and shout for joy.”  (Ref. Psalm 35:27.)

      Taking pleasure in God’s righteousness means that we prefer His righteous way of living.  It brings us happiness.  So much so that we shout for joy.  When we live in and prefer God’s righteousness in our lives, we put ourselves in a position to have Him prosper us.  And He delights in doing it, because He knows we value His righteousness and His ways of living above the blessing He gives us.

      Commitment #7:  “I give you all these things as you seek Me first.”  (Ref. Matthew 6:33.)

      This last commitment really sums up all of what God is saying to us about His desire to prosper us.  What does it mean to seek first His kingdom?  God’s kingdom is His rule or reign.  So when you’re seeking after God’s rule or reign first in your life, you’re seeking to be submissive and obedient to His rule and reign over you.  And that’s what He’s saying.  Seek to be submissive and obedient to His rule and reign on your life.

      So it says, “Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right).”  That’s letting us know that as we seek God first, we will submit to His way of handling finances.  We can have financial success if we will do it.

      When we give God control of our finances, we then gain control of them.  We think we have control of them before, but we really don’t.  Only until we give them to God do we have control.

      Think of it this way.  People who are always wanting something in their life whether it’s finances or whatever, they get focused on that.  What God has for their life is in front of them.  But they are looking for something that’s behind them.  They’re grasping after it and so what’s happening?  It’s getting further away.  But that changes when they turn and they look at Jesus Christ before them and they seek first the way of God.  When they seek first His kingdom and righteousness and they forget about what’s behind them, all of a sudden those things they need start coming up around them.  Because what does verse 33 say?  “And then all these things taken together will be given you besides.”

      When your focus is on God, His focus is on you.  Now had you rather provide for yourself by having your focus on yourself or would you rather have God Almighty focused on you saying, “I’ve got to provide for them because they’re seeking My will and My way in their lives.  They’re so busy doing what I want them to do and giving what I want them to give and handling My finances the way I want them to handle them, I’ve got to take care of them.  So as they’re seeking Me first I command the angels to take all these things to them.  ‘Angels, take this to them.  They need this.  Now, take care of them.’”

      God wants us to see that all the things we need will be added to us to equip us to do exactly what He wants us to do in our lives and to have our needs met in the way that He wants them to be met.

      Remember He is a liberal God.  So the way it works is that you look around and all of a sudden you’re saying, “Oh that need has been met, and this need was met.”  What you used to turn around and seek behind you, instead you turn around and seek God.  Then all of a sudden it’s there and the need is met.  That’s how God works, because verse 21 in Hebrews 13 says, “God will equip you with everything good that you may carry out His will.”  See, God wants to finance the vision He’s given you for your life.  He will provide!  I like to say He wants to be your financier.

      You know what a financier is?  A person who engages in financial operations on a large scale.  Isn’t that great?  God, our Father engages in financial operations on a large scale, “So, hey, I’ll let Him finance my life.  Forget my trying to struggle and do it.”  We have a whole lot better life when God is in control of our finances.

      You take care of God’s work and His will for your life and He’ll take care of you.  That’s what Hebrews 13:5 says.  “For He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support.  [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)!  [Assuredly not!]”

      We can be satisfied and content with our current circumstances because why?  Because God promises to take care of us and provide everything we need.  He won’t leave us without support.  He’ll never relax His hold on our life.  So Satan cannot destroy us and strip from us everything we need to live.

      God doesn’t want us to worry about finances or seek after them because He sees an abundance of them for us.  And He’s committed to getting them into our hands if we’ll seek Him first.

      That’s the word God wants you to get today.  Your hope and expectation, no matter if you have little finances or a lot of finances, must be in God and that He will move financially in your life.  That’s your financial destiny!

Sept 26-30

 
 
Satan keeps trying to strip away the image of God that we should have.  He tries to make Him small and weak and unimportant.  We simply have to believe our God is who He is: mighty, great, merciful, abundant, and sovereign.  We must have our sense of awe kept strong so our faith will stay strong in Him.  God wants you to see who He is to your life.  He wants you to view His nature and His character and His abilities and be in such awe that you can’t help but cry out, “You’re my God!”
