BE A STEWARD OF GOD’S FINANCES

The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine,’ says the LORD of hosts” Haggai 2:8 (NKJV)
 
It is an opportunity or privilege to be a financial partner of the gospel.
Giving towards the advancement of the gospel and the Kingdom, isn’t for everyone. And that is why you don’t listen nor pay attention to anyone who vehemently speaks against giving into the gospel.

Giving into the Kingdom is for those who have:

1. Set their affection on the Lord and have given themselves to the Lord

2. Consciously increased in the giving grace, and give with joy and willingness.

3. Recognized themselves as stewards of God’s finances.

As a steward of God’s finances you acknowledge that, whatever you give is not from you but of God.
You acknowledge God as your supply.
That was exactly the mindset of Abraham.
When God asked Abraham to offer his son Isaac; Abraham didn’t see himself as the provider of the sacrifice.
When Isaac asked where the lamb for the sacrifice was, Abraham told him, God will provide for Himself a lamb for the sacrifice.
Now the question is did God really made provision of the lamb for the sacrifice?
Of course! (See Genesis 22:1-18)
This is for you to understand that, whatever God tells you to do, He supplies you with the resources to do.
When God tells you to go out there to preach, teach and heal the sick, He supplies you with the grace to do.
God doesn’t place demands on you. He supplies you with the grace and resources you need to do what He wants you to do.
When it comes to financing Kingdom assignment, the first thing to do is to look to God, not your pocket nor bank account.
Your bank balance will always be too small for the great things God wants you to do.
David said, “…I have given to the house of my God, over and above all that I have prepared for the holy house, my own special treasure of gold and silver: 1 Chronicles 29:3 (NKJV)
 
Which means he gave beyond what he has saved (prepared).
At this level of giving you are operating on the frequency of God’s supply.
Giving by faith is giving with the mindset that the Lord is your supply; and that is stewardship.
On the matter of stewardship you acknowledge that, all that you have is from God and it belongs to Him.
When that becomes your consciousness you don’t struggle to give greatly towards the advancement of His Kingdom.
Remember whatever we do for God must be great.
It was this mindset David had. He saw himself as a steward of God’s resources. And that was how he trained his people to think.
Both riches and honor come from You, And You reign over all. In Your hand is power and might;
In Your hand it is to make great. And to give strength to all.
 “Now therefore, our God,
We thank You
And praise Your glorious name.
But who am I, and who are my people,That we should be able to offer so willingly as this? For all things come from You, And of Your own we have given You. For we are aliens and pilgrims before You, As were all our fathers; Our days on earth are as a shadow,
And without hope. “O Lord our God, all this abundance that we have prepared to build You a house for Your holy name is from Your hand, and is all Your own.” 1 Chronicles 29:12-16 (NKJV).
 
David and His people gave greatly towards the Lord’s work because they recognised that the work of God is great and must be greatly financed. And above all they gave cheerfully and willingly because they knew all that they had was from God. And also it was God who enabled them to give.
They saw their walk with God greater than their earthly engagements.
Beloved whatever you have is of God, therefore you are only a steward of God’s resources. Your giving into God’s work is God sponsoring and advancing His Kingdom mandate through you.
What can you give into God’s assignment that He didn’t give to you?
Refusing to be a radical giver is failing to be a faithful steward. This is the secret of giving willingly.
ARE YOU A FAITHFUL KINGDOM FINANCIAL STEWARD?

DIG DEEPER:
(Psalm 50:8-11; Haggai 2:7-9; 1 Chronicles 29:2-20; Luke 16:9-11; Proverbs 3:9-11; Deuteronomy 15:10)
 
WE PRAY:
That we will be obedient to the promptings of the Lord each time in giving to His work.
 
BIBLE READING:
DAY 131: 1 Chronicles 19-21

– I don’t withhold whatever the Lord asks me to give.
– I give willingly and bountifully.
– My finances are for the gospel.
– I give in and out of necessity.

Oh Hallelujah, Gloreeeey!!!
