If we truly seek God first, then the First priority in our life is the presence of God when you wake up. All firsts belong to God and we dedicate your first thoughts in the morning- we wake up and say, "holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, I will bless the Lord at all times, His praise shall continually be in my mouth!" Because God, You are worthy to be praised. There is no one like You! Often, it’s not that we are doing something wrong but not doing enough of what is right! THIS ALL BEGINS WITH HONORING GOD’S PRINCIPLE OF FIRST FRUITS! We put Him first in EVERYTHING - it is our worship!
The Hebrew year 5781, on our calendar year 2021, means “to widen your mouth in silence.” That your life is a sign of worship - God knows the worship of your heart, and in this time - as you are silent in battles in the natural, the worship that comes forth will be your weapon, and God will restore, deliver, and give you victory!
Strongs Concordance shows the number “2021” (hotsen) means: a weapon of war. This is a year to worship in all we do… Right now as we are in the very beginning of 2021, Patricia, I declare your worship will be a weapon against the attacks of the enemy. I proclaim that every act of worship will bring you prosperity and abundance for your year- It all begins with honoring God with His First Fruits as instructed in His Word, I will explain… First Fruits in Hebrew is “bikkurim” and literally means “promise to come.” And there is ONE who never breaks His promise – God!
When you KEEP FIRST THINGS FIRST through faith and obedience, you turn God's promise into provision… Because He wants to see His people who honor Him succeed, People of God, He has put a principle into place FOR YOU called: “First Fruits.” He wants to see YOU succeed and prosper, WOW! …but He desires it HIS WAY, not ours… It is all about Him, not us. The Bible references first fruits or first things or devoted things no less than 32 times… “When you come into the land which I gave you, and reap its harvest, then you shall bring a sheaf of the first fruits of your harvest to the priest” (Leviticus 23:9-10)… “Honor the Lord with your substance (wealth), with the first fruits of all your increase” (Proverbs 3:9)… The first represents the total. All firsts belong to God! and there is a reason why… “Honor the LORD with your possessions, and with the firstfruits of all your increase; so your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will overflow…” (Proverbs 3:9–10 NKJV). BLESSINGS flow through your WORSHIP! image
Right now, as I write this to you, I declare that your obedience to honoring God will cause your barns to be filled with plenty and your vats to overflow in the name of Jesus! This divine establishment of God’s order is actually the root, the foundation that governs the rest. “For if the firstfruit is holy, the lump is also holy; and if the root is holy, so are the branches” (Romans 11:16 NKJV). God claims the FIRST of ALL THINGS! It rightfully belongs to Him. When we apply the Principle of First Fruits, we see that all firsts should be given to the Lord: the first of the day, week (Sabbath), month, and the first of our harvest. It is a principle… Jesus declared, “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness... all these things will be added to you,” (Matthew 6:33). God adds the “things” to you when the foundation is in place to be built upon. When we honor God with our FIRST FRUITS, He will unlock everything for the remainder of the year- and I stand in agreement with you that 2021 will be A YEAR OF UNPRECEDENTED BLESSING!! You can put God first in every area of your life by: PRAYING: Give God your first thoughts in the morning.
PLANNING: Where do you want to be 365 days from today? MAKING AN OFFERING: When you give your first fruits offering, you are planting a seed for the remainder of the year. There is a greater portion that awaits you in honor of your first fruits offering! It all begins with your obedience… As you remember, or worship the Lord your God, according to Deuteronomy 8:18, through your first fruits offering, He gives you the power to acquire wealth to establish His covenant. image Let’s read that again, "He gives you the power to acquire wealth to establish His covenant…" At the very beginning of each year, I put God first and honor Him with the first of my sustenance by sowing a sacrificial First Fruits Offering. Some years that has been a week, other years a day or two, but there were some years I felt led to sow a month’s wages, that was my personal conviction and I obeyed. It is not about a specific amount as much as it is about what is a sacrifice for my year - what am I willing to lay at the altar for God in worship? Every year many others join us and sow a First Fruits Offering, but everyone gives their best- It is not that you “Have to”… you can miss your moment and the blessing that comes with it if you choose… but it is that you “Get to!” It is about Honoring God. I believe what you do with your “first” in the opening days, weeks, and month of 2021 will greatly determine your entire year.
Remember- SUPERNATURAL ABUNDANCE & BLESSING in 2021! Declare it with me, “Supernatural Abundance & Blessing in 2021!” This is about us putting God First and sacrificing to Him… I challenge you to put First Things First and honor God! I challenge you to start activating the Word by offering God your First Fruits as a seed for your harvest in 2021. I challenge you to set aside time for him every day. Maybe you feel led to fast for a portion of this first month… And although it is going to unlock unbelievable blessing all around your life, it is first and foremost about honoring God because He is worthy!
According to Ezekiel 44, I will raise your offering up as a sacrifice, believing God to pour out His promises through your obedience! “The best of all the firstfruit and of all your special gifts will be given to the priests. You are to give them the first portion so that a blessing may rest on your household” (Ezekiel 44:30). Give your very best as a first fruits offering and watch God's unlimited blessings pour into your life and your family. BELIEVE and WATCH WHAT GOD WILL DO! I believe your holy act of silently laying your First Fruits Seed down at the altar right now, in worship, is a weapon of war against the enemy.
I Love you and I will continue to pray for and with you!
