Here's pastor Paul with today's message God will provide the Holy Spirit started speaking to me is clearly a I was laying in the bed and I was awake but looking up and listening to the Lord. My wife woke up and looked over and saw me and she said what in the world is my Lord speaking to me. She said and I told her what was happening that he was telling me that what he had shown me at the mega church in Florida and the self-consciousness I had at the Crystal Cathedral were him telling me when you build that worship center. I want you to build boxes just like you saw in Florida teach the people how to give. According to the word of God and then let them give in the boxes and asked the Lord lay in their you know how much money we don't need when we get to the new worship center at that moment. That morning our churches budget at the time was a large growing church required $75,000 a week as we needed at the time when we moved to the new worship center we had already calculated with the overhead and all of that we were going to need 100,000 a week to make budget and so I laid there asked the Lord, did he understand where the budgetary needs. My walk with God telling me boxes and they put 100,000.

But I knew it was the word of the Lord just like this will the Lord had already whispered to her you will not defeat somebody so it is very believable that this window could have been out there gathering sticks to my trip in the Lord driven, got back to the church that Sunday morning here from the Lord called church and in the Florida favor want to take a picture of one of your tithing often boxes and send it to me. I did my email address so they sent me a digital copy so the next Sunday and all for the services in her little building. I put up that picture. I explained to them and all for services what happened and this Is Way, God told me to build the sold worship center were building right now we get in there in August 2004. You will see these boxes from that day forward, we will never again pass the basket you will give or not give.

That means when I said that all for services people lost and said you know what a clapping they could happen because when they get old.

If you given you thousand dollars got another thought, but my wife already said earlier when we landed that morning. She said the Lord is going to provide and I said I hope you are a prophetess is God speaking to you and you does not trying to build me a it was God speaking. Do you know from the moment we walked in that building. In August 2004.

First of all, attendance jumped 700 people a week. We had a bigger building when I was growing in the little building. It was for services with overflow and intuitive services. We were locking people out for some locked out folks, Yahweh, mankind, which are sold outside they would start forming the line for the next. That's why we had to build the big thing and so subtly 700 people a week more come in the church and so I explained when we got in there.

Here's how we give. I'm still teaching tithing often because I want to be blessed. I can bless you.

If I don't take about money, money well if I don't talk about money, you will know what to do with your money is a lamp to my feet like my pathway God gives us the money and he's the source he's going to tell you what to do with it. If you think you know is my money when you just cursed yourself as yours is not. God is not God. He won't blessed so subtly. All friends jumped up. We never had a single close call in the five years I pastored that church in that building member of financial close call always had what we needed and then some and the budget that started out in that building meeting the hundred thousand dollars a week before I left that pastorate we needed almost 1/4 of $1 million a week and got supplied without the basket coming that was used to think you have some doing, because when the Lord would let me see basket and he said, seek ye first the kingdom, and my righteousness I asked you to be the observer and asked you to look at my place took me out of it altogether and this lady heard from the spirit and she could have been protested and we don't know what is very likely she could been protested in her heart. When Elijah shows up and asked for water she going to get that he so would you bring me some bread like dance when she said I look at is a test y'all gotta stop flunking this because if you forget to ask God like summary school did not give you the degree anyway we got people in certain segments of the country they graduate high school and came read. What in the world that I won't do it. Do you makeup and so lady she explained to him that she and her son about the glass and I don't go they don't die after that first of all I want to point out what she said when he asked for her to bring a morsel of bread she said as the Lord your God lives. Verse 12 C pass the test because you know some of y'all would not have as the Lord your God lives wait hold on this stop attending some of that weight one.

She didn't have any internal negativity going on. All she's doing is saying God is my witness, all I have little flower and a little oil I'm gathering the sticks so I can prepare that make that into cakes of bread and then my son and I going to eat that in die. So when she said I don't have any bread she was truthful she had prepared a check. Some of us have got to learn, watch your internal dialogue. Watch your internal dialogue because your internal dialogue speaks where you really are as a man thinks in his heart so is he or she is what's going on on the inside so you can look so faithful and only on the outside but is examining.

She big old robust preacher come for me to give him some anywhere about how we don't think all that going on. But that's not the language of faith. She said, as the Lord lives. Here's the deal I made this, in die, so she didn't cancel out and look at what he says in response to that do not fear, and then he says to her do as you said, but make me a small cake from it first. Weight y'all know if a preacher bus up on you son although I shudder to think what they would say to me somebody, the Lord said, your son will be on Academy coming up next.

What happens after he's tells of the why he says make me forest bring me bring it to me. There is another opportunity make it an embryonic we stand right here, bring me my cake finding time to make it for you. You know you better be outside my door and you suck, come go back over to the city gate where you stand in and feed you like some waiter, watch your internal dialogue because the Lord is listening. This is not about the church is not about the radio ministry speaking when you're doing when his kingdom is all about what is going to come from some person who hears God what to do and what I have to respondent doing is not whether they do they don't have to hear God for themselves. A broadcaster friend of mine I preached at his mega church once and afterwards we have a meal and he tell me about a listener who just gave $1 million and really what Melissa just somebody who knew of his ministry and knew that he did a lot of our media ministry in the church served a lot of people in their city and all that. And so here was a man, has it turns out was a multimillionaire who needed to unload a lot of money just to keep in the right tax and a lot of folks have to get that's how much money they had. They have to give to Lightner tax burden and his phone rang at a man called and he said I'm not a Christian.

I'm not a person of faith, but I know of your ministry. I know the kind of things you do and I need to give so I decided to give you $1 million and the man told him when you receive the check this week. Do not call me. I don't want an acknowledgment. I just want you to receive it, use it for what you all are doing. Do not call me and so the pastor said shall not a few days later he comes this money million dollars. We put it in it when you don't know does the text say it actually went through. He has a lot of big donors so he's used to pick up his phone and call in his big donors and thanking them, he picked up the phone without thinking called the man miss it did not tell you not call me hung up the phone and so when the pastor telling me how seamlessly he told you you couldn't call him.

He is saying about me says want you look me up. We both laughed. The matter is, God can bless you through a resource. He chooses to leave a blessing to ministry and so he said don't fear, don't let your head get involved here, your head will make you miss your blessing because conventional wisdom is not the wisdom of God in the kingdom we receive by giving them the kingdom.

God blesses us as we load and so he said don't fear do this, but give it to me first, and bring it to me and afterward make some for yourself and your son.

For the Lord says the bin of flour will not be used to the jar of oil won't run dry, until the day that the Lord sends rain on the earth. Do you see what God said to her I'm testing your obedience here is the way to make sure you don't live in fear. The best way to develop a fearless lifestyle is to be faithful.

If I want to be fear less I have to be faithful have to be full of faith. So I have no room left for fear the job that the best way to be fear less is the be faithful, you're going to have less fear the more faith you have, the more I walk by faith, the less I have to fear because God is taking care of me because I put my life in his hands on what Matthew 633 says Jesus said seek first the kingdom of God. Don't seek first, here's what I think I need to do. That's a formula for disaster.

Thing is, seek the kingdom.

When you have next to nothing. Give that's what we been told here not poured see what you have in your hand, you think it is bread its lead when you saw it from it all. I got to work for somebody if you hear it what you got is not see you don't see you so see the problems of the sea to and so she so in obedience.

She went in there made bread came back out to the city gate shut down anything that was trying to bubble up man meant going on Susan going out this insert your and then she gets back home and she looks in the comfort and flour is overflowing and see the vessel and no is overflowing. You take this essay I will take care of you. This is no scheme trying to get overall me know. This is God teaching you. You first thing you do is honor me somebody here needs to learn your time and I grew up in a household give the time you grow up like that if you heard a thing about given at the church.

It was a negative thing in your household or even go to church at all. And so now you are in charge and submenu with sand so they mention money they trying to get a hold on your money to set you up so you have the opportunity say Lord I'm giving this to you because I'm believing you, somebody's gotta learn when I give God what I have and I saw it into the kingdom of God and he will produce not just a bit sometimes to give you something to give you 60 hundredfold return. God way made me do the same for you. Do you remember when you were a child in your hungry, was there any doubt your mother and father would feed you will.

That's the kind of faith God wants from you today. As Jesus said, assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.
