WHAT TO DO WITH THE FIRST
( #1 Daily Devotional Tract by Dr Isaiah Wealth )
_“ Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase.”_
The covenant practice of consecrating the first part of our increase or income to God is one that honours the Lord and also opens us up to enjoy the blessing of abundance as our scriptural text for today shows us. Is this a revelation you have assimilated and begun to practice?
The culture of bringing our first increase to God is an art of honour unto Him. The Bible teaches us that we must set it apart (Exo. 13:12); in other words, we are to consciously do it, knowing that it is a sacred covenant which opens us up to plenty in the months to come. Glory to God!
Therefore, consecrate unto God a portion of your first increase or income this month. First set it aside and take time out to offer it unto Him in your privacy with praise and thanksgiving, and then lay it upon His altar. As you honour God this way, He will preserve the rest and cause you to walk in prosperity in 2017. Say Amen to that!
