Faithfulness - Smathefulness...
I was so mad the first time I read this verse. I didn’t want to stay in the land and cultivate faithfulness! I wanted to do something exciting. I wanted to move to another state! I wanted to go to Bible school and get involved in ministry!
The Lord had a different plan. He told me to continue working at the job I hated...the job that seemed like a waste of time and the job where I didn’t get any respect! He told me to stay there and cultivate faithfulness. That meant: Be on time. Work hard. Be faithful. Keep your mouth shut. Be a witness.
It was the last thing I wanted to do, but I made a decision to do it anyway! After one year, I had passed the test and the Lord released me from that job and led me to begin the ministry training pathway He had planned for me. I have never regretted being faithful.
The Lord is very interested in the small things. If He can’t count on us in the little things – like faithfulness – how can He trust us with the big things?
Are you ready to win the world for Christ? Start your own business or ministry? Take over the universe? Perhaps the Lord wants to cultivate faithfulness in your life, first! Whether you’re in a beautiful, blue sky land full of beauty or the backside of a desert somewhere; just know, He’s watching your faithfulness – even when no one else is. When we are faithful in little things, He’ll entrust us with big things. When we are faithful in “another man’s,” He will give us our own. When He counts us faithful, He promotes us. I know, sometimes it’s a bitter pill, but swallow it and be faithful!
One day you may hear the words, “Well done, good and faithful servant…”
Say This: Father, I do trust You. I will do what You want me to do. I will stay. I will go. I will cultivate faithfulness. I will be faithful in small things, natural things, relationships, leadership, at work, at home, at church and in any other opportunities You place before me. Help me Lord to be counted faithful. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
When we are faithful in little things, He’ll entrust us with big things.
