Generosity Part 1
Everything we do needs to glorify God and reveal Him to the world around us.
In the Garden of Eden, God told Adam that if he ate of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, he would surely die (Genesis 2:16-17). That was a promise from God. But the devil came and asked, “Did God actually say…” (Genesis 3:1), causing Adam and Eve to doubt the word of God and to eat of the tree. Their sin resulted in them being thrown out of the Garden and losing everything. Sin blocks what we have access to in Kingdom and can keep us from laying hold of the promises of God.
However, God doesn’t leave Adam and Eve without hope. He gives them the promise of their salvation, who is Jesus (Genesis 3:15). So, even though they lost everything, the promise from God is an invitation for them to keep going. Eve had to raise her children, a seemingly ordinary task; but from their offspring, Jesus would ultimately be born. She was raising the vehicle of the promise. We must never underestimate what God can do in our lives. The seemingly ordinary or mundane things can be the vehicle through which God wants to do the impossible.
Therefore, even if we can’t see the end result, through faith we must come into agreement with His promises. The Word says, “For all the promises of God find their Yes in Him” and whenever these promises come into fulfillment, it brings glory to God (2 Corinthians 1:20).
