Good morning beloved, I pray that as you read the Lord will minister to your heart and bless you with understanding in Jesus name. Amen
God’s will for us as heirs with Christ are clear and potentially numerous. To worship him, to dominate the earth, to prosper, to be fruitful, to live for His purpose etc and ultimately, His will for us is to make heaven. I was gonna touch all these but I couldn’t do quality research within the time but while reading, something stuck and I will mention just that one thing and we will pray on it.
Stewardship is the commitment of one’s self and possessions to God’s service, recognizing that we do not have the right of control over our property or ourselves.
This is self explanatory and thank God that in this group, as led by Busola, we have shown commitment in our walk with God and stewardship.
We are called as God’s stewards to manage that which belongs to God. While God has graciously entrusted us with the care, development, and enjoyment of everything he owns as his stewards, we are responsible to manage his holdings well and according to his desires and purposes. Do you know these include your children? Hmmmm…
Like the servants in the Parable of the Talents, we will be called to give an account of how we have administered everything we have been given; including our time, money, abilities, information, wisdom, relationships, and authority.
We will all give account to the rightful owner as to how well we managed the things he has entrusted to us. The will of God on that is this –
Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!
Being great stewards, is one of the easiest ways to please God. Let us be committed in our stewardship, God is watching, keep serving, while you are doing that, no devil can torment, torture or terminate your life. While you are on God’s mission, remember that you are entitled to ask Him all that you need to fulfill your mission and ultimately, you are entitled to His protection.
But remember it is by grace that we can be great stewards. It is by grace that we can serve God. Acts 26:22 “Having therefore obtained help of God, I continue unto this day, witnessing both to small and great…”
Are you a steward, are you doing God’s work, are you working with your talents, are you managing all what God has put in your care, are you serving the common good and furthering His kingdom? If you answer is yes, go ahead and ask for all that you need for your work. Remind God that you are being His steward and state your needs to carryon in your walk and work in the kingdom.
Finally pray this:
Dear father, You put me on this earth for Your mission, You have set me on my path for Your glory, I am serving the common good and furthering Your kingdom, so therefore my God, I decree Your divine protection over my destiny, I decree Your protection over all that concerns me, Father, remove any distraction from my path, Father please do not permit pain in my life, I strongly desire to press on in this race, please God, my creator, give me the grace to serve you all the days of my life and at the end, count me among those that you will welcome into your kingdom, these I pray in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. Amen!
