Has it ever occurred to you that anything you give God is already His?

Today's blog is all about what it means to give back to God. What it means to surrender what you have for who He is and choose Him above all else.

"Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you"

- Luke 6:38 NIV

Give to Live

Has it ever occurred to you that anything you give God is already His?

By simply choosing to give, you're saying, “You are deserving of all that I have,” knowing full well He already owns all that you call yours.

When I thought of this concept, I was immediately engulfed in gratitude. It was as if God was saying, “Here, this is for you,” and I was walking away with more than I could ever ask for.

But that’s just the kind of God He is.

I don’t give to God because it’s my duty. I give to show Him my heart’s surrender in my gift to Him. This can be anything from the money I work for to the life I live. Giving to God is my way of letting Him know, “I trust you,” and the proof is in my gift.

But it doesn’t stop there.

You see, it is the gift that keeps on giving! He doubles it—triples it!—until His will is accomplished. And what I give to Him can never return void. There is nothing I could ever give Him that He will not use.

Sometimes we may give something out of full surrender, not really understanding why we had to give it up in the first place.

But from what I have personally experienced, we can trust Him to replace what we surrender to Him with something infinitely better for us. This is how we can look into the future with hope, knowing the best is yet to come, no matter what is past.

Trusting God in this process is not easy. Matter of fact, the waiting and the unknown can seem to last forever. But rest assured! He does know what He’s doing.

Be encouraged! Giving to God is not a fleeting moment that comes from time to time. It is a lifestyle, one that is chosen for the glory of His name and the goodness of our living.

Give to live.
