SCRIPTURE: A faithful man shall abound with blessings: but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent. Proverbs 28:20
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: God blesses a faithful person by committing greater things into His hands.
Faithfulness simply refers to the state of being faithful, either to God or to man. To be faithful then means, being strict or thorough in the performance of one’s duty, being true to one’s word or being steady in allegiance, loyalty and affection.
It has been confirmed that faithfulness is a trigger for the blessing of God. A faithful man does not beg to be blessed because to be faithful is to be blessed.
Now, the question is, how does God bless the faithful?
1. God commits the valuables to the reliable
God blesses a faithful person by committing greater things into His hands (Matthew 25:21). One who is faithful over few things becomes the lord of many things. God gives the faithful the privilege of handling greater things.
2. God Promotes the Consistent
Another way God blesses the faithful is by promoting them. God is ready to bless anyone who will not change his character because of the blessing. Some people were better as Christians when they were poor, when they did not have money; they would not miss church services; they would even come to church on non-service days. But when God blessed them with a Million Naira, they started giving excuses for not serving God or coming to church. Very pathetic!
Beloved, my counsel is, make up your mind to be faithful in all you do at all time, whether it is for God or for man.
Remember this: God blesses a faithful person by committing greater things into His hands.
1. Examine your life and identify areas of inconsistencies both in your character and in discharging your responsibilities.
2. Ask God for forgiveness and determine to be faithful at all times regardless of the prevailing condition per time.
PRAYER: O Lord, I ask that You forgive any form of unfaithfulness or inconsistency of character and duty exhibited by me in times past. I receive the grace to be faithful and accountable at all time, both to You and to my fellow human beings, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
