Many people are suffering because they do not apply the principle of Tithing and financial generosity towards the Kingdom of God.
In Malachi 3:10, God said:

'Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.''

In Proverbs 3: 9-10:

'Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine.'

Many of the problems that people face are linked to poverty and many are drowning in poverty because they do not apply the principle of generosity towards the Kingdom of God.

Once you get to experience the promises from Malachi 3:10 and Proverbs 3:9-10, surely you will find a solution to many of your problems to the point where your prayer life will change from 'just making personal requests' to mostly 'worshipping and praying for others'.

You see my friend, ever since I applied regularly the principles of generosity towards the Kingdom of God, there are so many prayers I have stopped making. In fact, when I look back in my memory lane, I get to laugh at some of the prayers I was making. There are prayers I don't utter anymore...

And I want you to get to that level...

Would'nt it be wonderful to get to a level where you don't need to make long winded prayers solely focused on yourself?

And don't misunderstand me: 'if you are at a point in life where your main prayer points consist in primary personal needs (food, rent, clothing, health, a job...) then by all means keep praying those prayer points.'

I am not against anyone praying for bread. If it is what you have to do at this point in time, then do it.

However, I want you to go beyond that. I want you to get to a point where you don't need to babble long prayers over basic needs.

There are a few principles I always apply but for the sake of this post, I will only share two principles:

1. Generosity towards the Kingdom, towards the poor, towards parents:

Every Christian should have a 'generosity budget'. You cannot live your whole life just paying personal bills while not being rich towards God.
When it comes to financing the work of the Kingdom (including my own ministry), my threshold starts from 10 % of my income and upwards. Then I have something set for my retired Dad and for the poor. We cannot use tithing as an excuse to absolve us from helping our parents or the poor.

Remember what Jesus said: 'the measure that you use will be measured back to you'' (Luke 6:38). Therefore, if you use a 0.1% measure of your income as a gift, the same measure will be measured back to you...
If you use a good measure starting from 10% and beyond, there will definitely be a considerable measure given back to you.

2. Living according to His will:

The Apostle John wrote:

'This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.'

(1 John 5:14-15)

The second principle I apply , consists in livng according to God's will. When we ask according to God's will, He hears us. Ever since I understood that principle, I always seek God's will and I ask God to sponsor or provide the resources for the realization of His will.

This is what I do:

a) I seek God's will
b) I find what He wants
c) I align my prayer points with His will
d) I ask provision to do His will on Earth as it is done in Heaven.

The beauty about God's will is in the fact It always includes people other than you.
When God sends you somewhere, it is not just for you but also for the people located in that place. When God directs you towards a choice of study at university, it is not just for you but also for the people who will benefit from your career.
The will of God is not just for you but also for other people.

When you live according to His will, your prayers will influence others. When you live according to His will, you become like a 'banker from Heaven' through whom God is distributing His provision and the effects of His Will on Earth.

Look, I am not judging you if you are still at the point where meeting your basic needs are the main thing. I used to be there as well.

However, God wants you to go beyond your personal needs.

I know that some of you do not have an income to start a life of generosity. Then I sugest that you find something of value among your belongings and sell it. Take a portion of the proceed and give it towards the Kingdom of God as a start. Sometimes you need to make use of a bit of violence to switch from being 'just a receiver' to 'becoming a giver'.

Start a life of generosity which aligns to His Will today.
