MFM 18 JULY 2021 DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR SUNDAY
TOPIC: SACRIFICIAL GIVING: GOD’S WAY TO PROSPERITY 2
Fire Scripture: 2 Sam. 24:22-24
MFM Daily Devotional 18th July 2021 Outline
Giving is the key to God’s prosperity. If you want God to bless you, then give. God is the Ultimate Giver. He gave us ﬁrst by giving His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ. God’s love is not static or self-centered. It reaches out and draws others in. God set the pattern of true love. When you love someone clearly, you will be willing to give freely to the point of self-sacriﬁce. God paid dearly with the life of His Son, which is the highest price or gift He could give.
Sacriﬁcial giving invokes blessings; it draws you closer to God. It makes God to act on your behalf; it takes you out of ordinary to extraordinary status or position. Abraham gave and God blessed him. He received abundant blessings because he obeyed God. Abraham’s blessings overﬂowed to his all his descendants, and that includes you. Today you can sing “Abraham’s blessings are mine…”. This is as a result of his sacriﬁcial giving (Gen. 22:12).
The widow of Zarephath gave all and she was blessed; the Shunnamite woman gave. Not only did she receive the gift of a son, but she also received the miracle of restoration to life for her son. David decided to give offering to God with something that will cost him something. As a result of this, the Lord was intreated for the land, and the plague was stayed from Israel (2 Sam. 24:24-25). In Luke 21:1-4, the widow gave all she had and caught the attention of Jesus Christ.

Jesus admired her generous and sacriﬁcial giving. The disciples forsook all and followed Jesus and got the promise of eternal life with Him (Lk.5:11; Mk. 1:18). Jesus assured the disciples that anyone who gives up something valuable for His sake will be repaid a hundred times in this life (Mk. 10:29-30). When you give, don’t give as if you are giving to a beggar. Give God your best and He will give you back hundred fold. You can never outgive God and you cannot make Him a debtor.
Remember, when you give, you receive. Givers never lack. The ﬁrst key to receiving from God is to seek His kingdom and its righteousness; then your gifts will be acceptable and in return every other thing will be added unto you.
Memory Verse: Jn. 3:16 – “For God so love the world, that he gave His only begotten Son, that whatsoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life”.
Motivational Quote: To get more, give more. It is the generous giving that produces generous harvest.
Prophetic Word: Your sacrificial giving will speak favour and blessing for you, in the name of Jesus.
HYMN: There Shall Be Showers of Blessing
1. “There shall be showers of blessing”
This is the promise of love;
There shall be seasons refreshing,
Sent from the Saviour above.
Showers of blessing,
Showers of blessing we need;
Mercy drops round us are falling,
But for the showers we plead.
2. “There shall be showers of blessing”
Precious reviving again;
Over the hills and the valleys,
Sound of abundance of rain.
3. “There shall be showers of blessing”
Send them upon us, O Lord;
Grant to us now a refreshing,
Come and now honour Your Word.
4. “There shall be showers of blessing”
O that today they might fall,
Now as to God we’re confessing,
Now as on Jesus we call!
