Have you ever seen an offer that seemed too good to be true? Maybe it was a diet that promised to give you a model’s figure or a cleaning solution that promised to remove the toughest stains. If you mustered the courage to try one of these offers, and found that the product didn’t work as promised, then I understand your skepticism. It’s hard to be optimistic when your experiences suggest otherwise.
Offers that come from God, however, are never too good to be true. In Malachi 3, God gave the Israelites an offer: “Try me! He encouraged them to bring tithes to Him to remove the curse they were under. God was so confident in His ability that He even offered a “money back guarantee”: “I will open the windows of heaven (and) pour out a blessing so great you won’t have enough room to take it in!” (Malachi 3:10).
Just like the Israelites during Malachi’s time, God has invited you to try Him. He offered to shield and protect you – try Him. He offered to be with you all the time – try Him. He offered to give you abundant life – try Him. Put God to the test, and watch Him do miraculous things in your life!
