An Unusual Instance Where God Resists The Enemy For You!
Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this, says the Lord of hosts, If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, so that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground, Nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field, says the Lord of hosts; and all nations will call you blessed, for you will be a delightful land, says the Lord of hosts (Malachi 3:10-12).
Most of the time throughout scripture, we are fully responsible to stand our ground and resist the enemy! We have the authority of the name of Jesus and the Word of God to do so!
But in this scripture, God says He will rebuke the devourer for us! Incredible! When you get involved in helping the Father with His program of spreading the Word of God and preaching the gospel all over the world through tithing to your local church and in giving offerings to other ministries, God Almighty goes to work on your behalf!
When the enemy tries to mess with your finances, be aware that God Almighty has taken offensive to help you. You’re not own your own alone. He’s taking the first step to see that you are blessed, that you get the best deals, and to see that your stuff lasts longer and goes further that it normally would. For the tither and giver, the devourer is rebuked by God!
Now you must believe this for it to work. Start saying out loud that the devourer is rebuked in your life! When things go wrong, expect God the Father to back you up and work it out! Set yourself in agreement with this promise of God that He will work on your behalf!
Don’t settle for second best. Expect the Father to bless your obedient giving. He watches over His word to make it good in your life today!
