Again I am reminded of God's promise in Malachi 3:10-11 (NIV):
"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 you will not have room enough for it. I will prevent pests from devouring your crops, and the vines in your fields will not cast their fruit," says the LORD Almighty.Perhaps your greatest challenge is in another area of life such as eating, relationships, or the way you manage your time. Whatever your struggle may be, know that God expects obedience in every area of our lives and that he rewards those who keep his commandments. Obedience and trust in God demonstrate our love for him. Jesus said, "Whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me. He who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love him and show myself to him" (John 14:21). Who of us doesn't desire more of God? If we say that we love him, then let us not be hindered by our disobedience. Rather let us choose to obey his Word, claiming the promises that were written for us.
"Trust and obey, for there's no other way to be happy in Jesus than to trust and obey" (John H. Sammis).
