MOUNTAIN TOP LIFE DAILY DEVOTIONAL




POWER OF FAITHFULNESS


FIRE SCRIPTURE: Luke 16:1-12


MEMORY VERSE:

Luke 16:10 "He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much."


PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit


THE MESSAGE:

Faithfulness is being reliable, loyal, dependable, trustworthy, passionate and committed. Faithfulness to God is when our total loyalty is to Him, come what may. Joseph demonstrated faithfulness when he was seduced by Potiphar's wife. God is faithful even when we are not, and His faithfulness never ends (Lamentation 3:22-23). God instructs us to be faithful (1 Corinthians 4:2, 10). He wants us to be loyal to Him until He calls us home.


The story of the wasteful steward in the text above reveals to you and me the power of faithfulness. Faithfulness makes a man to be accountable to God and man. A faithful man is an asset to God and the organisation he represents. Faithfulness makes a man to be humble. He will be strong and flourish even at old age. Faithfulness turns little into big. Like 19:7 affirms that there is a reward for faithfulness. A faithful child of God will enjoy worldly riches and also reign with God in eternity (Matthew 24:13). A faithful servant can be trusted. There is no partial faithfulness; you are either faithful or you are unjust. If a Christian is not faithful to God, his or her faithfulness is to mammon.


Beloved, the greatest thing that can be said about you at the end of age is: "Great and faithful servant, enter into the joy of your Lord." Are you fruitful to the Lord and to your church? Do you serve God for what you get rather than for His glory to be revealed? Repent today, change your ways and see the faithfulness of God becoming manifest in your life.


God's faithfulness towards us gives us an example of how we should be faithful in our relationships. He wants us to be faithful towards Him, His calling, promises and message (Luke 2:1-20). He also wants us to be faithful to our spouses, leaders and bosess in church and at work. Being faithful shows that you have made becoming like Christ your goal and that always pleases God.


If you are yet to surrender your life to Christ, you lack the power to be faithful. Even if you use your will power, all your righteousness is like filthy rag. It takes a heart genuinely surrendered to God to be faithful. Repent now and become God's faithful servant. God bless you richly.


MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE:

Faithfulness will put a man in the class of God. Be dependable!


PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:

LET THE POWER THAT HELPS A MAN TO WALK FAITHFULLY WITH GOD TO THE END OVERWHELM YOU, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
