God loves you so much that He gave His only Son to die for your sins, so should it not
stand to reason that every good gift in your life comes from Him? The Bible confirms
that "He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not
with him also freely give us all things?" (Romans 8:32).
Every good gift in life comes from God: "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from
above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither
shadow of turning" (James 1:17).
Your family, friends, health, ministry, talents, and financial resources--every positive
thing in your life is a gift from God. Under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, the Apostle
Paul describes the immensity of God’s giving nature:
But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even
when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye
are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly
places in Christ Jesus: That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding
riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. For by grace
are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of
works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ
Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in
them. (Ephesians 2:4-10)
From Genesis to Revelation, God is depicted as a giving God. Because He gave His best
to you through creation, redemption, and the good gifts you have received, you should be
willing to give your best to Him.
As God has given you all things through Christ, you must be willing to present your body
as a "living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God" (Romans 12:1). You must not
withhold anything from God, but must give yourself to Him totally--heart, spirit, mind,
soul, and body. When you give yourself one hundred percent to God, then you will not
withhold anything from Him--your time, your talents, or your finances. You are to give
God the very best you have as an act of worship.
It is God's will that there be financial resources and sufficient laborers for the work of
extending the Kingdom of God. It is His will that you have the necessary finances to
accomplish the divine mandate He has given of evangelizing the world. It is God's will
that you have finances, wisdom, talents, and abilities sufficient to accomplish your
