Spiritual Warfare: 'Tithing Is a Weapon Against The Enemy'

God's Power for Our Battles — Wednesday, February 9, 2022

"You have robbed me in your offerings and the tenth of your crops. So a curse is on you, because the whole nation has robbed me. Bring to the storehouse a full tenth of what you earn so there will be food in my house. Test me in this," says the Lord All-Powerful. "I will open the windows of heaven for you and pour out all the blessings you need."
— Malachi 3:8-10 NCV

Today's Prayer

Lord, many times in the past I have been stingy with my giving. When I want to cling to all You have given me, Lord, remind me that giving You Your share lifts a curse off of me and invites Your blessing from above. Thank You for challenging me to be faithful in this way. Help me to set the right example for others in all my future contributions and gain Your favor and blessing. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
