Last night I saw this scripture fulfilled in my dream. While the dream was happening I did not see the correlation but as soon as I woke up from it God spoke this verse. I walked into a house that was not my current house but I knew it was mine. As I walked in I looked up at the corners of the ceiling and they were buckling down like a huge load was on top of them. When I examined each room I could see the ceiling broken and pieces of a hard food falling down from it. When I went upstairs the ceiling was bending down and broke through in the corners. When I got to my bedroom I looked through the cracks of the door and the whole room was filled with this glowing hard food substance I couldn’t even open the door because it was completely filled. I was baffled in my dreamAs I woke up I heard God quote this verse:
Malachi 3:10 Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.
Two days ago my husband received a phone call that he had been waiting a year and a half for. Since we have a tree milling, drying and custom furniture business we need to buy large trees. The trees we buy are not cheap. The call came in that a large amount of trees were available for us to purchase but we have to come up with $15,000 in order to purchase them before someone else does. He was excited but wondered how in the world we would come up with the money we needed. With in 90 minutes we had clients come in and give us checks for the ENTIRE amount needed to buy the trees. We have Never had that large of sales in that short amount of time. One Custom Furniture order was 3/4ths the amount we needed!!! Hallelujah.
But the verse has a preface to it and we walked that out two weeks ago. There had been quite a lull from January to the beginning of February with sales and customers. We couldnt figure out what was happening. Then Tim remembered we hadn’t tithed yet on a large order that came in a couple months prior. So a couple weeks ago I prayed and payed our business tithe check at church. The next day God gave me a new strategy to urgently set in place for our website. And we began to break every record of views we previously had had. This was just days before leading up to the trees and orders to cover it. Old Testament principles in the Bible were put there for a reason and they still work today. We do not give to get! However, the principles are in the Word making sure we are not robbing God and ourselves of a blessing.
Here are the verses just prior to the blessing:
Malachi 3:7-9 Ever since the time of your ancestors you have turned away from my decrees and have not kept them. Return to me, and I will return to you,” says the Lord Almighty.“ But you ask, ‘How are we to return?’ “Will a mere mortal rob God? Yet you rob me.“ But you ask, ‘How are we robbing you?’“In tithes and offerings. You are under a curse—your whole nation—because you are robbing me.
Then VS 10.
Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. TEST ME IN THIS,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.
If God says to test Him, TEST HIM! I don’t know anywhere else in the Bible where it says this! God is faithful and His word is true. We have seen this in our life so many times and I am thankful now for visual picture of what it looks like for a storehouse to be flooded more than it can contain.
So I am declaring this over you! What provisions do you need God to do for you? Have you stood on His Word and obeyed? Have you declared to the brass heavens above you to OPEN IN JESUS NAME! Have you repented of a poverty mindset? Will you take God at His Word and believe that what He said He will Do! Hold Him to His promises over you, declare and decree them over your life and your family. There is nothing impossible for our God. He owns the cattle on a thousand hills- He owns everything! He cares for every need and desire and He has your back! Lets keep our eyes on Him because then we are not consumed with the heaviness the enemy wants to put on us. There is freedom in His presence. There is joy in giving when we know we are giving it back to Him. He is our rock and our resource guide! HA! If He can make water come from a rock, so you think a little bill scares Him? I declare the dream I had over you today! It is bigger than just for me. The body of Christ is going to come under the weight of His glory like never before and WE WILL WALK OUT WITH PROVISION IN OUR HANDS NOT JUST FOR US BUT FOR THE WORLD.
Strategies, God is going to release strategies for wealth to the body. He is beginning to give creative ideas, out of the box ideas. Ideas that might scare you at first but after confirmation and under your leaders covering God will make them flourish and grow. Time to break out of fear and step into blessing. Taking the first step into the unknown, like when Tim left an awesome good paying job to run our company full time, is hard at first. BUT IF IT IS GOD, HE WILL MEET YOU AND SUSTAIN YOU! Bless your people Lord so we can be a blessing! All for the honor and glory of your name! Amen!
Proverbs 3:9-10 Honor the Lord with your wealth,with the firstfruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing,and your vats will brim over with new wine.
