“Honor the LORD with your possessions, And with the first-fruits of all your increase; So your barns will be filled with plenty, And your vats will overflow with new wine.”
-When we honor God with our possessions, we declare that He is the provider for He gives us the power to gain wealth (Deu 8:18). Acts of mercy through almsgiving also amount to righteousness & God provides seed to the sower; to continue giving to the poor, the church & as one desires in the heart; that His grace may abound in us (2 Cor 9:9-14). When we honor God with the first-fruit of our increase which could be in form of new business or opportunities amounting to increased revenue, He fills our bans with plenty of grain & our wine presses with new wine. As we know first-fruit was a sacred feast where the first of harvested crops were offered to God. Christ then became our first-fruit through His death & resurrection that those who die in Him may rise at His coming (1 Cor 15:20-23).
We thank You Lord our Father for we have seen yet another beautiful day in good health. Our hearts rejoice in Your mercy & salvation forevermore. Have mercy on the sick, poor, suffering & the bereaved Lord & guide us to offer a helping hand when required to. Direct us & help us Father to effectively honor You with our possessions that our first-fruit may increase, bans filled with plenty & vats overflow with new wine as You desire for each one of us. Hear our prayers & supplications Lord & answer us for Your love endures forever. Amen
