Every time we hear that a particular situation is the first, it proposes that there will be many more coming along the way. The first born means there are many others being born. The first female surgeon means there are many others coming along the way. Every time we give God our first fruits, we not only acknowledge the fact that God is our source but also declare that there is more coming from God. There are times people treat the first fruit as the last fruit and desperately try holding onto it for dear life like there will never be another.
Your first income of the year, a new position, new job, new contract or whatever is new in your life belongs to God. By giving without fear you literary ensure that there is more coming. Remember we don’t call it the last fruit offering, meaning there is nothing else coming, but the first fruit meaning so much more is coming after it. Holding onto your first fruit dries up the supply as it becomes the last fruit. Putting it in the hands of God means the door stays open and God keeps bringing so much more. Give God the first and He will surprise you with so much more along the way.
SCRIPTURE READING: Romans 8:29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined [to be] conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.
DEVOTION PRAYER: Heavenly Father, I submit to your instruction by giving you the first in Jesus name amen.
