Greetings on Day 9 of 21 Days of Prayer! Found Faithful. Every day we wake and face the day, our desire is to win in every challenge that comes our way. We know God has promised victory when we are faithful to His purpose and plan for our lives. But that victory greatly depends on how we handle the gifts and blessings that God has already deposited in us.
First Corinthians 4:1-2 establishes this when it says, "Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God. Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful."
If we neglect development of the greatness inside of us, we will not do well against the obstacles outside of us. A good steward will be found faithful! When we commit to the greatness that God put in us, adhere to the plans He has for our lives and behave like the winners He has called us to be, trouble may come after us but we will be found faithful.
Let's be convinced of one thing: God is faithful and therefore, we will be faithful with all that He has provided.
Thank you for your divine instructions on how to live. Thank you for the promises that automatically come my way when I am faithful to Your call. Make my path plain and grant me the drive to stay on course.
In this moment, I declare Philippians 3:8-9 as my banner~ I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord.
If I must suffer trials and tests, I do it for Christ in me and consider those things lost in battle as dung, that I may win Christ.
In this I am confident that as a faithful steward of God's blessings in my life, I will be found in Him, faithful, not having my own righteousness, but the righteousness which is of God by faith in Jesus Christ.
No matter what comes my way, I will be a found faithful steward of the mysteries God has deposited in me, for my life is in His hands and I know that I can make it, in the name of Jesus, amen!
