Our Responsibility

Bring all the tithes (the whole tenth of your income) into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and prove Me now by it, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer [insects and plagues] for your sakes and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground, neither shall your vine drop its fruit before the time in the field, says the Lord of hosts. And all nations shall call you happy and blessed, for you shall be a land of delight, says the Lord of hosts." Malachi 3:10-12

Yesterday, I read this to my prayer group. Do you see what our responsibility is in these verses? Just to bring our firstfruits...our tithe to God. And the rest is up to Him. He will open the windows of heaven. He will pour out a blessing---so big we can't even receive it. He will rebuke the devourer. He will bless us. What a deal!! We just bring a tenth (of what is already actually His) and by our obedience, His order comes into our lives. His blessing. Just by loosening our hands, God's natural flow begins.
Test it out!! He invites you to do just that..."prove Me now by it, says the Lord of hosts..."
