The worship that God is looking for is one that touches His heart; something done on earth that moves Him in heaven. Don’t be stingy towards God. God takes note of what you give Him. He takes note of your offering, that was why Jesus sat by the offering bowl in Mark 12:41-44. He knows everything and He is marking you. From Exodus 23:15 it is clear that God does not want any worshipper to come before Him empty-handed and it is not about the amount of money but the state of your heart.
Don’t allow the offering bowl pass in front of you without you giving something. He is not just asking you to worship Him with what you don’t have. He is asking you to show the place that He occupies in your life by what you bring to him out of what you have. There is a stage when we worship God, not just with songs but also with what we have. At that point, some of our songs begin to have meaning and the songs tally with our heart and act. Do you want to live in the realm where God does things in your life;things you need that you are not asking for and things that you need to reign in your future that have not occurred to your mind now to pray about? It is the people that lavish their resources on God that get such. Just like in Matthew 26:13, Jesus said “Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that this woman hath done, be told for a memorial of her.”
PRAYER: I receive the grace to lavish my resources upon the Lord and I take authority over every spirit of stinginess in Jesus’ name. Amen.
