Scripture: Malachi 3:8-12
Is it any wonder that in Malachi we are told to put God to the test? Verse 10 says, “’Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, That there may be food in My house, And try Me now in this,’ Says the Lord of hosts, ‘If I will not open for you the windows of heaven And pour out for you such blessing That there will not be room enough to receive it.’” This is the only place in Scripture where God says, “Test Me, Prove Me and See what I will do!” That is because of the Hebrew hiphil causative verb of Deuteronomy 26. Any believer who has ever prayed and asked God what to give and where, heard and done it, has every right to ask God for the provision he or she needs to do whatever God has asked them to do. God has challenged us to put Him to the test and see if He won’t do it. If God said, “Put Me to the test,” we must be able to make a withdrawal from our Heavenly account. Why else would He say, “Put Me to the test”? That proves He expects us to make withdrawals from our Heavenly account. It is time we start doing it.
