Abraham did not step out and fold his hands for God to start doing wonders rather he was a worker.
Genesis 13:2 And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold.
Abraham reared cattle and was the first man to have a cattle ranch. He was a diligent and intelligent worker who was never idle and believed in hard work. At the age of 75, he did not step out as an old man but as a hard worker. If you want to have breakthrough, you must be a diligent worker.
2 Thessalonians 3:10 For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.
Idleness is the reason many persons have not gotten breakthrough. Many people in the world are too lazy.
Psalms 1:3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
God will only prosper what you do not; what you just confess. You have to do something to prosper otherwise nothing will work, except you work. Things work for only workers. In life, if you do not work, you will soon be worn out, so you must work.
Genesis 14:20 And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes of all.
Many people work vigorously but without results because they do not pay tithe. God taught Abraham how to pay tithe and he obeyed. It was Abraham that made tithing elaborate to mankind. If you want breakthrough, you must be faithful in tithing. Breakthrough is not possible without faithful tithing.
After Abraham paid tithe, he was the first person to discover water beneath the ground because God opened his eyes to see what others were not seeing as others were taking their cattle to the stream with associated distance but Abraham dug wells for his cattle. So permit me to say that Abraham was the first geologist.
John 8:39 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham.
If you do not do what Abraham did, you will not get his kind of results. If he paid his tithe and was blessed, you too have to do the same to be blessed because you cannot get Abraham’s blessings by singing or wishing the blessing rather, you will get it by doing what he did to get what he got. If he paid tithe, you should also pay otherwise you will never enjoy lasting breakthrough in the kingdom of God. Until you pay tithe like Abraham, you cannot have his kind of blessing.
Isaiah 51:2 Look unto Abraham your father, and unto Sarah that bare you: for I called him alone, and blessed him, and increased him.
You cannot find anyone who pays tithe faithfully and obeys the principles of prosperity and be under financial stress. Some people actually pay their tithe but are not faithful in paying it. There is a difference between paying tithe and paying it faithfully. Paying faithfully is devoid of playing pranks in every income received.
Malachi 3:10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.
Paying of tithe is a proof that you have conquered greed. Economic circumstances is not the reason people eat tithe, rather it is because of greed and when you eat your tithe, you steal from God. Consistent tithe payment will create consistent supply. Trying to ask God for promotion without paying tithe is like trying to pluck a star from the sky with your bare hands.
