“And ye, in any wise keep yourselves from the accursed thing, lest ye make yourselves accursed, when ye take of the accursed thing, and make the camp of Israel a curse, and trouble it. But all the silver, and gold, and vessels of brass and iron, are consecrated unto the Lord: they shall come into the treasury of the Lord…” (Josh. 6:18-19).
When you enter into your Promised Land, how do you plan to honor God? We must remember that He is the One Who has fought the battle on our behalf. God is the One Who has secured a great victory against our enemies. It is not because we deserved to win. Neither is it because we have done something so significant that it would ever measure up to all that God has ever done for us. Therefore, we must render unto God the honor that belongs to Him rightfully from the first of all that we possess upon entry into the land of promise.
If God has blessed you with additional time to live when the doctors had given you a timeframe to die, honor God with your remaining years. If God has blessed you with a promotion on your job, honor God with the position and the subsequent increase in salary. If God has restored your marriage and family, honor God in your marriage and family. If God has open up an opportunity for you to be a person of influence, honor God with that platform before others. Whatever it is that God has done on your behalf, honor Him with the victory that He has given to you in the presence of your enemies because He did not allow you to suffer defeat.
Honor God with the first fruits of all your substance…in whatever form it may take. It all belongs to Him rightfully!
