Offering talk – Consistency.


 I have a question – are you happy with your life at the moment?

Do you not want to see any change in your life or circumstances?

2 Corinthians 9:8

And God is able to make all grace

abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in

 all things, may abound to every good work:

If you want to see change in your life, you have to be consistent. If you don’t, then don’t be consistent.

If you want to see God work through your giving, you have to be consistent. You can’t just suddenly start quoting financial verses when you have some financial trouble.

That’s like when a robber comes to rob you and you realise you’re not strong enough to defend yourself, so quickly – while he’s stealing your things, you get the heaviest weights you have and start working out. It doesn’t matter what weight you use or how many reps you do – I guarantee it will not change you in time to defeat the robber.

But, if you want to be prepared – do a few reps everyday. Keep building up your strength, and as you are consistent, you will see results.

For example, healing was done for us 1,981 years ago, however to accept it into your own life – you need to be consistent.

You continue to believe for healing – but it’s through consistent building up your faith through the Word that you see the physical manifestation of any circumstance.

To see results in our financial life – first we need to go to the Word and see what the Word says about it and speak it over our situation. Then we also need to make sure we’re putting into practice all that the Word says – that opens the door for God to be able to move in our lives

1 John 3:22 says

And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.

As we learn from the Word what needs to be done, and keep it in our eyes, in our ears, our mouths and our hearts then we can apply it to our life and as we do that consistently, we will see results. Consistency is the key … to everything.

We also need to be consistent and faith filled with our giving.

First we give our tithes which is what God has allowed us to give back to him in order that he can bless us.

Malachi 3:10-12 says

{3:10} Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. {3:11} And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts. {3:12} And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of hosts.

On top of this we give our offerings – and God will bless us abundantly.

As we give consistently we will receive consistently. If we give inconsistently, then what we receive will also be inconsistent.

As we consistently learn from the Word and apply it in our lives; as we consistently give and apply our faith to our finances – we will consistently see results and be consistently and abundantly blessed.

{Ephesians 3:20} Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,{3:21} Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.
