In Malachi 3:10, the Lord promises us that if we will be faithful in our tithes and offerings, He will open to us the windows of heaven and pour us out an abundant blessing.

The Lamsa translation quotes this passage:
I will open the windows of heaven for you and pour out blessings for you until you shall say, "It is enough!"
Now I don't know about you, but I haven't yet been so blessed by the Lord that I have had to shout, "Stop Lord, that's enough!"

A Different Type Of Flood
We also saw that in The New International Version the expression "windows of heaven" is translated as "floodgates of heaven." Can you imagine God literally flooding us with blessings?

Now I know something about what it is like to be flooded, completely inundated. Several years ago my family and I were the victims of a flash flood in our neighborhood. It rained so hard it was almost unbelievable. The wind was blowing like a hurricane. It forced the rain to fall at an angle so that it came right through the cracks around the windows and doors in our house.

The rainwater started running down the walls and soaking the furniture and carpets, so I ran to get a mop. But the water was coming in faster than I could clean it up. I kept trying to sweep and mop up the rising water, but it was no use; I couldn't contain it. Finally I got so tired and frustrated that I just sat down on the floor, in all that water and ruined carpet, and began to laugh.

As I sat there, soaking wet, laughing to myself, I thought of the verse about God blessing in such abundance that it could not be contained. Suddenly the Lord spoke to me and said, "Now this is how I want My blessings to come down upon you." I got the message.

Now I want you to get it, and the blessings that go with it.

Are You Shouting Yet?
I must admit that I don't know many people who have yet been blessed so much that they have had to shout, "It is enough!" But that doesn't mean that such blessings are not available to us as Christians.

God has said that He will provide a flood of blessings for those of us who will be faithful in our tithing and giving.

I believe it is God's will and desire to bless us with just such an overflowing abundance because it is part of His plan for reaching the whole world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Author Biography

Jerry Savelle
Web site: Jerry Savelle Ministries International
Dr. Jerry Savelle was an average, blue-collar man who was struggling and needed God's help. While he considered himself a "nobody," when he became a believer God told him not to worry about it because He was a master at making champions out of nobodies. God has since taken Dr. Savelle from being a constant quitter to a man who knows how to stand on the Word of God until victory is experienced. Because of the life-changing combination of God's faithfulness and Dr. Savelle's "no quit" attitude, his life is totally different than it was thirty-eight years ago.
