Goodseed Daily Devotional 17th January 2023
Topic: WHY SATAN HATES TITHING
SCRIPTURE : Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.
The subject of tithing is one subject that the devil attacks, especially on the social media. Many people have abandoned their destiny in the hands of public opinion. Many people do not like to listen to God through their pastor but they listen to the voice of the social media or the internet. It is not supposed to be so.
Why is tithing such a controversial subject in our world today?
i. The grip of money on the hearts of men (Matthew 6:24).
One reason why tithing is hotly debated among people today is the strong grip of money on the hearts of people. Some people pursue money to the extent of killing their fellow human beings, prostituting, telling lies, cheating and engaging in deceitful acts.
Money is a god that most people worship. So, when you begin to mention money-related matters, it becomes a sensitive thing in their minds and they either begin to listen to your message with suspicion or fight it.
ii. To attack the financial welfare of people (Malachi 3:8-10).
The second reason the devil attacks the subject of tithing is to destroy the financial welfare of the church. It is the plan of the devil to hold
people bound in poverty.
So, any preaching, teaching or instruction from God that enhances the financial welfare of the people and the church of God is aggressively resisted and fought by the devil.
Beloved, do not allow any devil to deprive you of your blessing. Your tithing is a pathway to your blessing. Make up mind to select what or who you listen to. Do not allow any devil to rob you of your blessing by robbing you of your tithing.
PRAYER: Thank You Lord for Your Word to me today. I refuse to be derailed by the misconceptions on tithing. I receive the grace to connect to my blessing through tithing, in Jesus’ Name.
