12/24/14 Daily Devotion

Malachi 3:9-10 You are under a curse–the whole nation of you–because you are robbing me. 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 you will not have room enough for it.

God says to test Him and see if He will do good, test Him and see if He will open the floodgates. Most Christians should have no problem with testing God, testing Him to see what He is willing to do within their lives. This feeling comes from the fact the many scriptures state that God should not be tested. This circumstances here is not an application that should be applied to all things, as it was directed to a specific group of people. Even so, while we should test God to see what He will do, we should serve God and expect Him to be moved to action within our lives. We should serve Him, knowing that He will bless our lives as He deems necessary. We should serve Him not out of any expectation that He will bring in the future, but because of all that He has done for us in the past through the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross of Calvary. So serve God and know that He will make His blessings known when He is ready.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me serve You with no expectations or request.
