Russ Walden: "Be a Giver and Partaker - Prosper in All Things!"

From the Desk of Steve Shultz:

Steve ShultzDear Elijah Listers,

My wife Derene and I have become ongoing "students" of we are constantly learning about and putting into practice the "art of giving" – if you will.

Each year, we increase our giving more and more, and we've discovered that it remains true – you simply can't out-give the Lord!

One of the most profound passages about giving is this one by Paul in his letter to the Philippians (in Russ Walden's word below). Paul is teaching them how giving works and how the rewards work.

I pray you will be encouraged and built up as you realize God is literally looking for reasons or excuses to bless you even more abundantly, and He tells you through Paul how to make that happen!

We bless you in your generous giving to the Lord. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

"Be a Giver and Partaker - Prosper in All Things!"

Russ Walden, Sahuarita, AZ

How to Be a Giver & a Partaker of God's Riches in Glory

Philippians 4:10-19 says: "But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at last your care for me has flourished again; though you surely did care, but you lacked opportunity. Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content: I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

"Nevertheless you have done well that you shared in my distress. Now you Philippians know also that in the beginning of the Gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church shared with me concerning giving and receiving but you only. For even in Thessalonica you sent aid once and again for my necessities. Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the fruit that abounds to your account.

"Indeed, I have all and abound. I am full, having received from Epaphroditus the things sent from you, a sweet-smelling aroma, an acceptable sacrifice, well pleasing to God. And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus."

Paul was speaking to the Philippians explaining how he had learned to be content in every situation; whether suffering need or having abundance, he could do all things through Christ, which is where his strength came from. (Photo via Pikist)

These people were different, however. He said that no other church gave into his ministry like they had. They gave financial gifts, not just while he was visiting them but also to support him while ministering in other places. They made a commitment by partnering with him, enabling him to travel and share the message of Jesus Christ to the whole world.

Paul spoke of a special blessing for those who gave when he said, "My God shall supply all of your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus."

When you sow into the Kingdom of God through a powerful ministry so that others can receive the Gospel, you reap God's riches in glory and all of your needs are met. Then you also become a partaker of the same anointing and blessings that are on that ministry.

The Key to Abundant Life – It's a Choice

The Father says to you, "I am looking for ways to get your blessings to you, not take from you. My ways and thoughts are higher than yours, which are usually diametrically opposed to the world's way of thinking and doing.

"In order to receive something, you first have to do something. Things are the way they are because of what you are doing. If you want something different you have to do something different.

"I gave My all so that you could live not just an ordinary life, but a life worth living—abundant life. If you are not experiencing abundant life, it is not because I have not provided it. You appropriate My promises, first and foremost, by reading them so that you know what they are, believing them, speaking them, acting on them as if they are true—arranging your life around them.

"When you make room for Me, when you allow for growth and expansion to happen in your life, you are giving Me and the angels something to work with. The angels hearken to the 'voice' of My Word. Your voice, speaking My Word by faith, activates angels on your behalf."

2 Corinthians 9:11-15 says: "Thus you will be enriched in all things and in every way, so that you can be generous, and [your generosity as it is] administered by us will bring forth thanksgiving to God.

"For the service that the ministering of this fund renders does not only fully supply what is lacking to the saints (God's people), but it also overflows in many [cries of] thanksgiving to God. (Photo via Piqsels)

"Because at [your] standing of the test of this ministry, they will glorify God for your loyalty and obedience to the Gospel of Christ which you confess, as well as for your generous-hearted liberality to them and to all [the other needy ones].

"And they yearn for you while they pray for you, because of the surpassing measure of God's grace (His favor and mercy and spiritual blessing which is shown forth) in you.

"Now thanks be to God for His Gift, [precious] beyond telling [His indescribable, inexpressible, free Gift]!"

How to Prosper in All Things

The Father says, "Nothing escapes My eye; I see everything. Even the widow who gave two mites is specifically mentioned as giving more than all the rich people at the treasury that day because it was all she had. It was also the attitude with which she gave. Would I then let her starve after she gave her all to Me? Absolutely not. She received My blessings and protection, just as you do.

"My ways and methods are not always obvious to the natural mind and circumstances. When things appear as a 'suddenly,' know that I have been working behind the scenes your whole life to make all things work together for your good.

All things, means ALL things—not just the 'good things' that work out perfect. I can make even your mistakes to prosper when you trust Me and follow My formula for success.

"My Word is near to you, in your mouth and in your heart, so that you may do it. I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; choose life that both you and your seed may live."

"But the Word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it." (Deut. 30:14 KJV)
