2 Chronicles 1:1-12 (6) – Solomon went up to the bronze altar before the LORD in the tent of meeting and offered a thousand burnt offerings on it. (NIV)
Solomon gave a thousand burnt offerings to God in a day, and that same night, God gave him a blank cheque as seen in our Bible reading. Similarly, in Genesis 22:1-18, after Abraham had Isaac at hundred, God told him to sacrifice this only son. Was that not a hard thing— to offer the child for which he had long awaited? But Abraham knew what it meant to obey God, so he surrendered! Therefore, in verses 17-18, God blessed him bountifully, and he became the ‘Father of Nations’. Today! Every of your quality sacrifice, shall be rewarded by heaven, in Jesus’ name.
Do you want to be great or exceedingly great? If yes, the level of your greatness depends on the nature of your sacrifice. Can you go the extra mile? Yes! For God! ‘But I don’t have money!’ Even at the lowest, you can still give to attract heaven’s attention as done by the poor widow in Luke 21:1-4. What about living a life of holiness and spreading the gospel? There are so much we can offer to God. Let the Holy Spirit guide you on this and respond! (2 Corinthians 9:7-9)
Beloved, Solomon became the wisest because when presented with the blank cheque, he asked for wisdom, and God added prosperity. Endeavour to always offer sacrifices that will cost you and the Lord shall enrich your life (2 Samuel 24:24). Be Born Again!
Hymn: I Surrender All – Judson W. Van DeVenter (1896)
1. Father, please grant me the grace to sacrifice my all for you.
1. As I sacrifice to You, Lord, please enlarge my coast and use me more for Your glory. (Give or do a hard thing for God).
2. Vengeance of the Lord, fall on the relentless wicked.
3. Father, move me from lack to abundance, shame to fame (decree).
YOU MUST TESTIFY!
