“God himself convinced me it is right to tithe” – Pastor Adeboye

“God himself convinced me it is right to tithe” – Pastor Adeboye

NAIJ.com had earlier reported how Nigerian OAP, Daddy Freeze has been firing at pastors for collecting tithe from their members.

He claimed that they are yet to give scriptural backing to payment of tithe in their churches.

Meanwhile, General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has spoken through his daily devotional book Open Heavens.

Pastor Adeboye wrote the following about tithing in the devotional for Sunday, December 3, 2017 with the topic; "Tithing Is Trusting’'

"After l became newly born again and we were taught to pay tithes, l laughed and said in my mind, “These people do not know that I am a mathematician. If 100% is not enough for me, how can 90% be enough after I have paid 10% as tithe?

"Thank you very much! Even though these people are not educated, they still want to use their smartness to take 10% of my income from me. Let them try and take it.

"However, down the line, God convinced me by Himself and I observed remarkable changes in my life. In those days, I was a lecturer in the university. I had a car but was afraid to drive in Lagos, so I got a driver.

"At the end of the month, I would pay my driver his salary, but by the middle of the next month, I would have to borrow money from him to buy petrol (gasoline). This happened month after month. I continued to struggle with my finances and even had to spend all my earnings.

"However, when I started paying my tithes I suddenly realised I did not need a driver anymore, because boldness came from nowhere and I could now drive myself.

Also, did not have to visit hospitals again because l now had the Great Physician as my doctor. My children did not fall sick again, and that leakage in my finances was blocked off.

All of a sudden, doors of opportunities began to open to me because l trusted the Lord. Are you still struggling with tithing? If you are, it only shows that you do not trust God to take care of you.

"The truth is, whatever you are paid may never be sufficient to meet all your needs because you are limited to that source, whereas you are open to various devourers.

"In contrast, when you tithe, you will have access to resources beyond your income because God’s storehouse will be opened to you, and He will also block every source of losses in your life. It is a matter of choice. Why don’t you start trusting God from today by paying your tithe faithfully?"
