From scriptures, we are made to understand that If there is a command from God, it brings no benefit to God, rather it brings benefit to us.
Every commandment from God is an opportunity to be blessed and so is the commandment of stewardship, the bible explains in exodus 23:25 & 26 that you shall serve the Lord your God and he will bless your bread and your water, he will take sickness away from the midst of thee, you will not cast your young or be barren in the land and the number of your days he will fulfill.
So we see from scriptures that God requires your service not for his benefit but rather to benefit us. Every time there is an opportunity to serve, recognize it is an opportunity to be blessed because God receives nothing from our service but we receive everything for our service.
We must therefore have the right attitude, the attitude of seeing stewardship as an opportunity, we also discover from scriptures that God does not accept every service and until your service is accepted, it cannot be rewarded. (Heb. 12:28).
There is what God marks as acceptable service, the question therefore is, what is it that makes our service acceptable ?
We must serve God faithfully ( 1 cor. 4:2) – If you are not faithful, you will not be found, God is only looking for the faithful, the word of God makes clear to us in the book of proverbs 20:6, a faithful man, who can find ?
Whereever faithfulness is located, God is on the look out, he is always searching to find faithful men, what is he searching for them for, the bible also explains in the book of proverbs 28: 20 : a faithful man shall abound with blessing.
God is always on the look out for the faithful to bless him and God will not be looking for something and not find it. It is not just about serving but about serving faithfully.
Faithfulness means consistency, being dependable, being one that God will find on duty all the time. The bible talks about a wise and faithful servant , the one whom when the Lord cometh shall find so doing, he will find him on duty.
The question is , does God consistently find you on duty? Are you consistently on the task he has given to you? When you are on and off, your blessings will run off but when you are consistent and faithful , the blessings of God will continue to manifest upon your life.
May the grace to maintain our stewardship manifest on each one of us in Jesus name.
