Offering to the Lord
Dear beloved: Some scenes from the Living Water site; l to r, the Living Water, new house for the watchman and tools, maize crop growing.
2 Samuel 24:21 Then Araunah said, "Why has the lord my king come to his servant?" And King David said, "To buy the threshing floor from you, to build an altar to the Lord, that the plague may be withdrawn from the people." v22 Then Araunah said to David, " Let the lord the king take and offer up whatever seems good to him. Look, here are oxen for burnt sacrifice, and threshing implements and the yokes of the oxen for wood. v23 "All these, o king, Araunah has given to the king. v24 Then the king said to Araunah, "No, but I will surely buy it from you for a price; nor will I offer burnt offerings to the Lord my God with that which costs me nothing." So David bought the threshing floor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver.
Beloved, What are you asking from the Lord God this day? Maybe it is needs for yourself, your family, or your ministry? God knows the desires of your heart, your needs even before you speak them. King David had needs as well, BIG needs. His sin had brought a plague down upon the children of Israel. He could have easily taken the gift of the threshing floor. But he chose instead to make an offering to the Lord, to purchase the threshing floor as an expression of his sacrifice to the Lord. Consider today making a gift to Gather the Outcasts Ministry. We have needs for the kingdom of God in Africa, to stop the plague of corruption, sexual immorality, the rise of islam and other pagan religions. I would appreciate more monthly partners, more offerings for the Living Water Orphanage project, so we can give the children a good home, and teach them about the love that Jesus has for them. Pray about your part in moving the Kingdom of God forward in Africa today.
