God does not judge our actions but the motive behind the actions, so the motive for desiring supernatural blessings from God must be right with God. James 4:3 “You ask and receive not, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it upon your lusts”, this is the reason why many of such prayers are not answered because we want to spend it on lusts. But when the motive is right likewise other parameters, heaven will open.
Luke 6:38 “Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you”. You are not expected to reap when you did not sow, and you don’t expect to reap bountifully when you have sowed sparingly, V6 “But I say this, He who sows sparingly shall also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully shall also reap bountifully”. Nevertheless, our giving must not be out of compulsion but from a willing heart V7 “Each one, as he purposes in his heart, let him give; not of grief, or of necessity, for God loves a cheerful giver”.
The real reason for financial prosperity is lost to many people, it is not to have excess money in our bank account or have fleet of cars, but to have enough resources for the good work, V8 “And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that in everything, always having all self-sufficiency, you may abound to every good work”. What are the good works required of us? Giving towards kingdom advancement, giving to your spiritual leaders, helping the poor and taking care of the needy.

Prayer point: I receive the grace to be a committed giver towards good works in Jesus name.
