So what is See if I Won't? Why did I choose that name for the name of my blog?
In Malachi 3:10 God says “Bring one-tenth of your income into the storehouse so that there may be food in my house. Test me in this way,” says Yahweh. “SEE IF I WON'T open the windows of heaven for you and flood you with blessings.
God wants us to trust Him so much in our tithing, that He sends out this proclamation of See if I Won't! See if He won't provide us plenty and then some if we only trust in Him. My pastor had used this in a sermon one Sunday and it really just stuck with me. I started realizing I had heard this phrase from God on many occasions and not just pertaining to tithing.
I took this verse and I studied it. I studied it with one of my favorite verses, James 4:8 "Come near to God and He will come near to you." I'm not sure about anyone else, but I love being able to connect bible verses that you might not think go together but they do.
The James verse is pretty much God saying again for me to do something and see if He wouldn't reciprocate. Just come close to Him and He will come closer to you. Anytime I have ever needed Him, anytime I have ever surrendered it all to Him, anytime I have ever just whispered His name, He has always been there. He always comes closer to me. And He has been preparing me for years to face the world and it's battles that come my way. That when I put my trust in Him, see if I Won't conquer everything that is thrown my way!
So See if I Won't was born.
SEE IF I WON'T is about
being an OVERCOMER
SEE IF I WON'T is about holding steadfast in the face of a very unfair and cruel world where you will be told you can't and won't do things.
It's about walking in your purpose even if you bother the unbothered.
And having the confidence to be unbothered about bothering them.
SEE IF I WON'T is about smiling when they said you'll never smile again.
It's finding joy, humor, motivation and encouragement for yourself and others through your struggles.
SEE IF I WON'T is about telling YOUR story because you know someone needs to hear so they can finish their own.
I'm here to help you love your life and learn how to be an overcomer.
I want you to be able to stand strong, look the world in the eyes and say SEE IF I WON'T!
