Question: Why isn't my giving working?
Answer with a Question: are you giving revelation or religion. The fullness of revelation will cause you to receive the name of it immediately. Ladies and gentlemen I'm going to try to answer the question of why you're giving is not working.

"Bring you all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in my house, and prove me now herewith, said the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it."
Is our church a vegetarian?
Why are we lacking meat? Why do so many churches struggle financially? According to the word that should never be a struggle anywhere.
2 Corinthians 9 "And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work. (NLT)
"And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others."
TITHING'S motivation is obedience. The reason why we tithe it's because we obey.
What do the TITHES do?
The TITHE is the Divine connector to the blessing. It connects the blessing
"And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful,(always producing) and multiply, (ever-increasing) and replenish (use it fill it & refill it) the earth, and subdue it (control it) and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth."
So the motivation for tithing is obedience
Control your environment or your environment will control you.
The reason why many of you are not affected by recession or depression is because of your tithing it doesn't matter when layoffs happen or foreclosure crisis God protects your stuff he rebukes the Devourer.
