YOUR SACRIFICE TO GOD BRINGS HIM PRAISES
God wants us to offer Him the sacrifice of Praise and to distribute and freely give to others what He has given unto us. Paul said: 15 By Him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to His Name. Hebrews 13:15. This means that even when you are facing severe financial problems or any other crises, God expects you to praise Him continually!
When you praise God for His faithfulness, mercy, and supernatural provision, something will happen in the spiritual realm! Fear and worry will disappear and will be replaced with faith. God will release His power on your behalf. You will take hold of victory that God has provided for you. 16 But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased. Hebrews 13:16. God is pleased whenever you share with others the blessings that He has given to you. Paul told the Philippians (who had communicated with him through their generous giving and ministering to his needs) in that their gifts were… 18 But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, well pleasing to God. Phil. 4:18.
At every opportunity, God wants you to minister to others through giving. Paul said: 10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith. Galatians 6:10. The sacrifices of the Old Covenant are no longer necessary. The sacrifices that God desires from you today are the things that you do in obedience to His Word.
When you offer the sacrifices of praise and give liberally to others, it is sweet-smelling aroma in God’s nostrils. God will accept this type of sacrifice, and it will please Him. When your sacrifices honor Him and His Word, He will respond by pouring His promised blessings into your life. 2 And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the Voice of the Lord thy God. Deut. 28:2. In our obedience and sacrifice to God, Paul assures us:
But my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
REMINDER: YOUR SACRIFICE TO GOD BRINGS HIM PRAISES!!!
Love you and the Blessings of God be upon you.
