AG Podcast E13: Commit in Advance to Give Away any Surplus
First of all, pray and ask the Holy Spirit to guide you as you calculate everything you use your income to cover (housing utilities, medical, transportation, food, etc). Take your time to cover everything and ask yourself if your current income covers everything. If it doesn’t, start praying specifically for God to cover this just as it is said in Philippians 4:19.
And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.
If you already have surplus, calculate the amount of surplus you have and we encourage you to honor God with your surplus and watch what He does in and through your life. Determine in advance that you are going to honor God with what He puts into your hands and agree that everything you are and have belongs to God.
Open your hands before God.
Pray and commit in advance to give away any surplus for the advancement of the gospel and watch what happens.
You must decide in your heart how much to give and don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure for God loves a person who gives cheerfully as read in 2 Corinthians 9:7.
Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
When we live open handedly taken, these three action steps provide three benefits to you: living generously for God, setting others free to experience God’s unconditional love and acceptance, and giving more of God than you ever thought possible.
Now nothing is limited from being the giver and the giving through you. Now God is free. You are free and others are free. Now your motives and intentions align with God’s motives and intentions. Now you can wake up every day looking for ways to be more generous.
This is the life God has always wanted for you, the life you have always wanted.
