Day 177 – Honour God
9Honour the Lord with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase: 10so shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine. Proverbs 3:9-10
9Honour God with everything you own; give him the first and the best. Your barns will burst, your wine vats will brim over. Proverbs 3:9-10 (Message)
The word honour here means to esteem, to make weighty, or to have great regard for. What the Bible is saying here is esteem God with your substance, esteem Him highly. Let God be the focus of honour in your life; with your wealth, your children, your career, your talent, your energy, your time, and your spouse. Give God all your honour and ‘your barns will burst’. Be faithful even with your little, esteeming God in all you have. This is wisdom, and as you do this it will be well with you.
Make it your life’s principle to pay your tithe faithfully, and give generously; knowing that you are only a custodian of all that you possess – all we have has been freely given to us by God. Listen to Him as He guides you in the way to spend what you have. This is the way to keep your barn full and continuously bursting!
As you go through today keep it at the back of your mind to honour God with all you have. Father, may your grace and mercy go with your people today. May it be well with everyone reading this devotional now, in the name of Jesus. Amen. God bless you.
