Day 14 - Return
Pray: “Father, prepare my heart to serve you in the area of my finances, my treasure. Help me to steward the money you’ve given me according to your plan and your instructions, not according to fear of provision and fear of tomorrow.”
Read Malachi 3:10 out loud: “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 there will not be room enough to store it.”
Write down how much money you earn each paycheck. Calculate 10% of the value you earn. Write that number down. Pray over that value and commit to return that to the Lord every paycheck earned (engage your spouse to join with you in this effort if you have one). If the value leaves you feeling worried, scared, or afraid, pray “God, I trust you. I trust you with every part of me. I trust you with my treasure. I believe you provide for me. As I take the step of faith and return your tithe to you these 40 days, change my heart and mind to trust you completely in my finances. I want to serve you with my whole being.”
Write out Philippians 4:19: “And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.”
Listen: to The Stand and let it be your prayer for this area of your heart and life.
