"So shall your storage places be filled with plenty" (Prov. 3:10 AMP).

Jesus told us in Matthew 6:19-21 that we're to lay up treasure in heaven and not on earth, where moth and rust corrupt and where thieves can break in and steal. I call this our heavenly account!

We have been blessed by God to be able to deposit and withdraw from this account. How do we do that?

You make deposits by giving to God's work.

The foundation for that giving is the tithe. When you give the first tenth of your income to the Lord, you open the door for God to come into your finances and move supernaturally. Proverbs 3:9-10 says that when you honor the Lord with the first fruits of your increase, your storage places will be filled with plenty.

In addition to your tithe, you can also deposit to your heavenly account by giving offerings into the work of the gospel. When you give, be sure you are giving into good ground. You have to put your seed (money) into good ground if you want a return (Study Mark 4).

If you are like me, you're already eager to get to the bottom line here. You're saying, "OK, I know that I have an account. I know where it is, and I know how to make deposits. But when can I get the money? When can I make a withdrawal?"

The answer is in Mark 10:29-30. There Jesus was answering the disciples who had asked Him what they were going to get in return for the giving they had done for the gospel's sake.

He told them they would receive a hundredfold return from their heavenly account today, in this time! Although our deposits are going to be bringing us reward for eternity, we don't have to wait until we die and go to heaven to draw on those resources. We can make withdrawals on our heavenly account here and now!

And you make those withdrawals with your faith. You do that by releasing your faith in what God has already spoken about the financial blessings that belong to you in Christ Jesus. Then say it with your mouth and believe it in your heart until it comes to pass (Mark 11:22-24).

You reach out with the hand of faith and claim what's yours!

Speak the Word: "I honor the Lord with my money and with the first fruits of all my income. My storage places are filled with plenty!" (Proverbs 3:9-10 AMP)
