SCRIPTURE: Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings. Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation. MALACHI 3:10
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Who can assist whom God resists; who can help whom God hurts?
It is frightening to know that, people do not only steal from man, but also steal from the Most High God.

This is made clear from our anchor scripture above. People rob God by refusing to give their offerings and pay their tithes (the ten percent of their income). To rob God is to hold back from Him a portion of what belongs to Him out of whatever blessing and favour He releases to you. God is entitled to the tithe; therefore, to refuse to pay the tithe is to rob God.
For most people, when they earn money, the first thing they think of is what to buy. This is an inversion of priority.
The truth is, if one uses one’s tithe money to buy a shirt, that shirt would be considered a stolen shirt. Each time the person wears the shirt, the angels of God and even satan will resist the person. This is because the person robbed God to buy the shirt. Incredible!
The tragedy of robbing God is, instead of experiencing an open heaven; one will suffer a closed heaven over one’s life. God Himself would begin to resist the person.
Now, who can assist whom God resists? Who can help whom God hurts?
If a witch curses someone, a pastor can reverse it, but if God curses someone, who can reverse it?
God shall not curse you, in Jesus’ Name.
REMEMBER THIS: Who can assist whom God resists; who can help whom God hurts?
