Every Time You Give Big, God’s Vision Is Implanted In Your Heart

A rich man ran to Jesus one day, knelt down before Him and
asked, “….Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?”(Mark
10:17). The Lord told him to sell everything he had, give to the poor and be
His disciple. The Bible says, “…he (the rich man) was sad at the saying, and
went away grieved; for he had great possessions” (Mark 10:22). The problem
wasn’t that he had great possessions nor was it that Jesus didn’t want him; for
the Bible did tell us that Jesus loved him (Mark 10:21). He was bound by his
wealth and possessions. He couldn’t be the thirteenth disciple because he
couldn’t release what he had.

To be a disciple takes one very essential quality: you must
be a giver. The disciples of Jesus were givers. The disciples were also wealthy
men, for they were all successful in their chosen careers before they met
Jesus. This was why they were astonished when Jesus said, “It is easier for a
camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the
kingdom of God” (Mark 10:25). However, they weren’t held bound by their
possessions; they were mega – givers.

When you study the lives of the disciples, you’ll discover
they didn’t only give of their substance alone, they also gave their efforts,
talents, kindness, love – everything. You need to realize that God sees
everything you give to Him. He doesn’t look at the outward appearance of
things; He looks at the heart.

There are different kinds of givers. There are reluctant
givers and cheerful givers, the latter lavish his love on the Lord through his
giving; the former, however gives in pinches. Accordingly, the one who gives
bountifully from a cheerful and willing heart gets bountifully and the one who
gives in pinches gets in pinches.

Every time you give big, God’s vision is implanted in your
heart. So, stop giving to God as though He’s not seeing you. When you have an
opportunity to give, be excited for every opportunity to give is an opportunity
to receive. You may receive in the form of healing, deliverance, abundance or
whatever the need in your life is.

CONFESSION

I AM A WILLING AND
CHEERFUL GIVER, FOR I HAVE THE NATURE OF GOD. THERE’S NOTHING THAT’S TOO BIG
FOR ME TO GIVE FOR MY GOD! MY HEAVENLY FATHER HAS BLESSED ME BEYOUND MEASURE.
AMEN
