When I was asked to bring forth a word for the offering, immediately The LORD started poured out what I should say.
It might not be the traditional message one would hear at this time, but it was He gave.
The first thought He gave me was whatever you give to the least of these you give unto Me.
The second thought was to plant a seed by faith and expect a bumper crop.
It isn’t in the amount of monetary value in that seed but the amount of the faith of God that you attach to it.
All God expects is that we be faithful, yielded and obedient to give whatever The LORD places upon your heart.
He doesn’t expect sacrifice, but that we obey.
Examine your heart to see what is the true motivation for what you do. Is it the pressure that comes from man, or is it from the grace that flows from the Father’s heart?
God does not look upon the outward actions, but looks to the motives of the heart.
You need to separate the true flow of His Spirit and obey that.
Cast down all other thoughts that are just vain empty imaginings that will not bring forth good fruit.
If one would only obey God by placing His kingdom first, then all other needs of your own will be met.
Trust in The LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path.
When you see a need give it to Him and watch Him work out all the circumstances and bring it forth in His timing and in His way.

Yolanda Ballard of At The Father’s Feet website, shares with you, the body of Christ, the words she’s received quietly sitting at the Father’s feet. I believe Jesus set the example for us to follow. Whenever He could He would come apart from the busyness of the world so that He could quiet Himself before the Father, for that is where He received direction and strength to carry out His will.
