Partnership with God: Verse of the Day


‭Genesis 28:18-22 NKJV‬
[18] Then Jacob rose early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put at his head, set it up as a pillar, and poured oil on top of it. [19] And he called the name of that place Bethel; but the name of that city had been Luz previously. [20] Then Jacob made a vow, saying, “If God will be with me, and keep me in this way that I am going, and give me bread to eat and clothing to put on, [21] so that I come back to my father’s house in peace, then the Lord shall be my God. [22] And this stone which I have set as a pillar shall be God’s house, and of all that You give me I will surely give a tenth to You.”

The last and most important decision we are going to consider in this series is the decision to partner with God throughout our lives. The decision to partner with God must be made in the light of the many great promises of God to us in His word. It is the most rewarding of the several decisions one has to make in life.

The decision to partner will mean saying yes to what Christ has done for you, live in obedience to His word and His Holy Spirit. It is to believe in Christ as your Saviour and allow Him to be Lord of your life. Through our partnership with Christ, all the blessings of Abraham flows to us (Galatians 3:13-14). We must do our part and trust God to do His part. He is always faithful.

Jacob made a commitment to partner with God in response to His promises revealed through the dream (Genesis 28:10-17). He promised his devotion to God and to give Him a tenth (tithe) of all that God blessed him with. The Bible tells us that God indeed blessed Jacob and I am sure Jacob fulfilled his obligations.

Has God been faithful to His word, blessed you, protected you, and provided for you? Are you faithful to God? Are you walking fully in obedience to God? Are you faithful with your tithe? Those who walk faithfully in partnership with God are never short changed. They are blessed, protected and increasingly successful.

To be your best in life, make that decision to live faithfully in partnership with your God.
