"...but if the Lord is with us, why has all this happened to us? Where are all His wonders that our ancestors told us about when they said, ‘Did not the Lord bring us up out of Egypt'?"      Judges 6.13
This was Gideon's answer to the Lord, when He said: 'The Lord is with you, mighty warrior."
How many times do we hear encouraging words like these from other people?
But if the Lord is really with us, why do we have so many disappointments, frustrations, failures and troubles?
Why is that?
Because God wants to see an attitude of faith from us, just like Gideon.
We cannot forget that the blessings of the Kingdom of Heaven are taken by violence, Matthew 11.12.


"Honor the Lord with your possessions and with the firstfruits of all your increase, so your barns will be filled with plenty and your vats will overflow with new wine."       Proverbs 3.9-10
Honor is the link between children and their parents, husbands and wives, servants and masters.
Only those who are born of the Spirit acknowledge, through their firstfruits and offerings, that Jesus Christ is the Lord of their lives.
