To many, it seems  as though the Lord is in control of all things except money.


     There are some interesting principles in the Word of God that all quote and few practice. 


     For example, we are to pray in our Daily Bread. 
     We are to be good stewards with the money we have. 
     It is true that there is a biblical principle of work - to all labor there is a reward.
     It is His money, not ours.


     God holds it all.  The bank is powerless absent His consent.  We sing about  ". . . the cattle on a thousand hills. . . but when the going gets rough, the sleepless nights are haunted with whirling speculations of how things can be paid and how money can come from anyhere.  What will happen if the bills are not paid?    How can I stall this off?   Then of course, begging God over and over for help.  And beg we must.


     Soldier of The Cross,  He has told us to give to Him first no matter what.  Yes there is a supernatural principle of return.  Those who tithe or give off the top experience this principle and are never without.


     In terms of knowing Him, giving off the top builds faith with regard to finances.  Those who give even when there is not enough left to cover things, are givers who experience the Elijah story of I Kings 17:16:

    "For the jar of flour was not used up and the jug of oil did not run dry, in keeping with the word of the LORD spoken by Elijah."


     You are a Soldier of The Cross.  Your life is in His Hands.  So is your money.  So are your debts.  So are the needs of your children.


     Obey God's Word and see the dust settle.


     Tell Him.
