God is a Father and He does not work in formulas!
God works in relationship.
If there is no relationship with Papa, all of your formulas will only be manipulation and He does not respond to manipulation!
We have been teaching formulas in the body of Christ when we should have been teaching relationship and trust.
God is forever changing. For example, the way He heals people, in other words.
He had rubbed mud in someone’s eyes and one woman had to touch the hem of his garment.
If we had been around in those days, we would of had the “FIRST CHURCH OF THE RUB MUD IN YOUR EYES FELLOWSHIP”
In other words, we try to take a formula and make a religion out of it!
And so it is with our giving I believe. We try and do these formulas that people on TV advocate and it isn’t working for us.
But God is impressing me today, that we must go back to relationship and obedience as we trust God, not our formulas!
