I want to thank God for the delay in my salary being paid. I am a civil servant and we are two weeks into the month, but my salary from the previous month had not been paid to me. Rather than complain to anyone or cause a problem in my department, in prayer I presented my situation to God and in His faithfulness, something amazing happened.
As I studied the lesson about “Opening the Windows of Heaven”, I came across the principle when I realized my tithing has not been “all my tithe”, because I have deducted it from the salary paid, so I did not tithe on the gross. The Lord has shown me that I have not faithfully wiped out only partially in the same way I’d tithed.
Years ago I read on some site that I was supposed to tithe on the gross salary, but I ignored it and soon forgot because, I had learned in a different way in my church. When I read the lesson here, I was heartbroken because I was not being faithful and now because of the devourer, I didn’t even have a tenth to tithe, to make sure that I had tithed on everything. Then I remembered that I had not yet received the salary from last month. The company was far behind schedule, but in this delay, God protected me so that the thief would no longer continue to steal.
Thank you, my God, you saved me from the errors of my ways and for giving me one more opportunity to be blessed.
As you probably guessed, I was given my paycheck, tithed on the gross or full amount, and two days later was given a bonus of another full paycheck! No one else in my department appears to have gotten a bonus, just me!!
“Bring the whole tithe into the temple, that there may be food in my house. Put me to the test, “says the Lord of Armies,” and see if I will not open the floodgates of heaven and pour out upon you so many blessings that you will have no place to keep them. I will prevent plagues from devouring their crops, and the vines in the fields will not lose their fruit, “says the Lord of hosts.” Mal. 3: 10-11
“Importance of Tithing”
Hello dear brides, today I want to share my testimony about the truth on tithing! I was not able to give my tithe to RMI, where I am spiritually nourished abundantly. Since I could not make a deposit, for a few days I thought I should just go back to my church to give it. But beloved brides, as God is Faithful, by His mercy He did not allow it. As I was driving He kept reminding me that for me to do so wouldn’t stop the devourer, because I would be going against the principle I was trying to follow, because that’s not where I was fed. I went home and kept trying to make the donation.
It wasn’t until I began to ask for help from My Beloved, my HH, after a full month, and that’s when my Heavenly Husband allowed me to finally tithe to my storehouse, the RMI ministry!
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you my Love !! Right after it worked, I heard back from where I’d taken my computer to be fixed, which is why I was unable to tithe because it didn’t work on my phone. They told me that they found the issue was very small, not the hundreds they thought it would cost to fix it, and it was ready for me to pick up. It cost me less than $20!
“Offer to God a sacrifice of gratitude, fulfill his vows to the Most High, and cry unto me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor Me. ” Psalm 50: 14,15
“Principle of Tithing”
I praise the Lord for the great blessings He has given me! Before I was a tithing, my salary was nothing—I could not pay anything on the time, I just never had enough. It was a terrible feeling. Every month I received my salary, but I could never pay all my bills. I lived in constant debt. In fact, I never paid anything on time, so I also ended up paying penalties and late fees!
I always delayed even paying car insurance and my home mortgage payment. But after beginning to strictly follow the biblical principles on tithing, for the first time since I refinanced my house, I was able to pay two installments on the dates. I also paid all my bills and had got caught up on everything!!
God is wonderful!!! His principles are true!! Now I always get to the end of the month with money left in my account! Funny too, is that before I had no money not even enough to tithe! Now I have an abundance!! God is faithful !!!
