Uphold Righteousness and Be filled With God’s Reward

Uphold Righteousness and Be filled With God’s Reward

King Hezekiah upheld the scepter of righteousness in the land of Judah, and God prospered him.

The scripture reported Hezekiah’s courageous decisions that turned out to become his achievements.

It is reported,

 

“Now when all this was finished, all Israel who were present went out to the cities of Judah and broke the sacred pillars in pieces, cut down the wooden images, and threw down the high places and the altars—from all Judah, Benjamin, Ephraim, and Manasseh—until they had utterly destroyed them all. Then all the children of Israel returned to their own cities, every man to his possession” (2 Chronicles 31:1).

 

King Hezekiah lived a victorious life and he was honored till the sunset of his life. His end was reported, “… So Hezekiah rested with his fathers, and they buried him in the upper tombs of the sons of David; and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem honored him at his death. Then Manasseh his son reigned in his place” (2 Chronicles 32:33).

 

Lesson on Righteousness Upholding

 

God’s rewards of goodness are bound to manifest in believers’ lives. Sweet and befitting testimonies will pursue people who are determined to walk in God’s ways, just like they happened in the life of King Hezekiah in the Bible.

The king excelled his predecessors because he feared God, and all things worked out well for him. He began his life story by enforcing God’s laws in his land.

 

Unlike his predecessors, Hezekiah ensured that idol shrines were destroyed in the land of Judah (2 Chronicles 31:1).

As a gesture for his steadfastness, God blessed Hezekiah with wisdom and strength. The king was brave to frustrate a powerful invading King Sennacherib of Assyria.assassination-attempt-268910_640

 

King Hezekiah devised an engineering scheme to frustrate his enemies by terminating watercourses that could have sustained them; meanwhile, he secretly rerouted the water courses through underground tunnels.

 

In addition, King Hezekiah was also able to supervise an invention of a storage system that stored temple articles.

The king ensured that God’s priests and their families were well cared for.

 

However, the greatest achievement of King Hezekiah is yet to be mentioned: He was humble enough to put Satan to shame when the enemy was determined to waste his life through pride.

God helped King Hezekiah to finish his earthly race well. He died at a very old age to receive an expensive royal honor in Jerusalem. God will reward us!

God’s View on Tithe Payment

God’s View on Tithe Payment

Tithe Payment Is Important To God

Tithe payment is God’s principle. He emphasized the need for Israelites to pay their tithes once they reach the Promised Land. God said,

reward“When you have finished laying aside all the tithe of your increase in the third year—the year of tithing—and have given it to the Levite, the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, so that they may eat within your gates and be filled, then you shall say before the Lord your God: ‘I have removed the holy tithe from my house, and also have given them to the Levite, the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, according to all Your commandments which You have commanded me; I have not transgressed Your commandments, nor have I forgotten them’” (Deuteronomy 26:12-13 NKJV).

 

Lesson on Tithe

titheIt is important that every believer understand the principle of tithe payment and comply with it.

God requires his children to pay him the ten percent (10%) of their incomes (which is also known as a tithe) to provide resources for gospel evangelization, meet ministers’ needs, and also serve poor people.

Believers must understand that Jehovah does not negotiate tithe, but he claims ownership on it – as his own entitlement. God allows us to have a personal claim on the remaining 90% of our incomes.

 

errorHowever, despite the large 90% of our incomes that we personally own, some believers still find it difficult to give God his own share; they would prefer to keep complete 100% for their personal use, therefore God labels them as thieves! (Malachi 3:8-10).

However, God who established the rule of tithe will not give his disobedient children a pat on the back.

 

Those who failed in paying their tithes are considered to have failed tests of character, and they will have some consequences to face for their actions.

Some consequences may include a delayed blessing or loss of opportunities.

However, believers who honor God with their incomes by faithfully paying their tithes will receive more blessings from him. Jehovah will give his faithful believers more reasons to keep their faithful practices!

 

Prayer on Tithe

titheDear God, please help me to faithfully observe the principle of paying my tithes to you.

Enough of hindering my own blessings due to my unfaithfulness!

Please forgive me of my past failures, and let me start paying my dues to you so that I can be adequately blessed.

Please let doors of opportunities open towards me from every side, and let me be more blessed so that I can be able to present you my “fat tithes and offerings!”

Let the testimony of your goodness ever fill my mouth!

For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.
