YOU ARE A STEWARD
(#1 Daily Devotional Tract by Dr. Isaiah & Lianna Wealth)
📆 Tuesday, 18th July, 2017.
📜 SCRIPTURAL TEXT:
(1 Peter 4:10)
“As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.”
🔹 🔹 🔹
When we received Christ as Lord and Saviour, we also received a measure of grace individually (Eph 4:7). That gift grace is to help us carry out certain aspects of Christian service more effectively than others. In other words, it is customized to our calling.
In our text today, Apostle Peter stresses that we ought to minister to others with the gift grace that God has given us. More specifically, by referring to us as stewards, he implies that we would give account to God on how faithful and fruitful we became in fulfilling our calling. It is therefore imperative that we be faithful with our calling by ensuring to serve in His house diligently with whatever gift grace He has given to us.
God has designed you to participate in the spread of the Gospel using the grace He has given you; it is time to give yourself to Him by being actively involved in Kingdom expansion today. So in what area has God given you a greater measure of grace than others around you? (1Cor. 12:4-11). Consider how faithful you have been in utilizing those gifts to edify other believers in the Body of Christ today.
🎯DO THIS: Consider how fruitful you are in utilizing your gifts and score yourself. Give more attention to this aspect of your life.
🎯SAY: I decree and I declare that the blessings of Abraham are mine.

Let’s pray for Pakistan 🇵🇰…
Christians are only about 2% in this nation. Majority are Muslims. Fundamentalist Islam, driven by the Taliban, is upheld by a minority, but impacts the whole nation. The escalated violence against religious minorities, shattered social cohesion and divided the country. It also disables economic development and keeps millions in poverty through the disruption it causes.
🙏🏼We are praying that the present situation in the nation will be a tool for the people to embrace Christ into their hearts.
🔹 START-UP PRAYER:
Dear Lord, help me to faithfully use all you have blessed me with to edify the body of Christ in Jesus name.
🔹 PRAYER OF REDEDICATION
I thank you for your great love towards me, and the privilege to be called your son. I declare my love for you today and surrender to your will. Bring me into the fullness of your grace this day even as I fellowship with your Son through the Word and your Spirit. I consecrate my whole body, soul and spirit to you right now. Let your will be done in my life today in Jesus Name. Amen.
