How To Make Things Happen In 2020


God has sent me to you, to tell you that where you’re is smaller than where He is taking you to.

Things aren’t going to be like this forever. Don’t give up! Everything that has beginning also has an end (Prov.23:18), there is always a light in the end of the tunnel (Hab.2:3).

Weeping isn’t permitted to go beyond a night. Has your problem lasted more than a night? If yes, that means your problem is long overdue for a solution.

It’s your attitude that determines your altitude. Your attitude towards your situation will always bail you out anyday.

Understand that there is always an end to everything. Sadly, many people have given up before the arrival of their breakthroughs. Don’t let this be you. I’m charging you to press on.

For I know the thoughts I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil; to give you an expected end. (Jer.29:11).

God builds slowly but strong. Satan builds quickly but fragile. During your waiting periods, character is built. Without a solid character you can’t sustain your breakthrough when it comes. You need to build a thick skin to secure your breakthrough or else it won’t last.

How To Provoke The Manifestation Of Your Breakthrough In 2020

Don’t wait for things to happen. Make them happen or they will never happen. Here are the things you can do to provoke the release of your breakthrough in 2020:

(1).Serve The Lord

Since the days of patriarchal until now, everyone that reigned had once served. The platform of service is the gateway to your change of story.

David was serving – keeping his father’s flocks – when he was called to the throne. Joseph served in Portiphar’s house before he became the prime minister. Jesus served by obeying His father instructions to the point of enthronement. What about Caleb who served to the end and full. You will die as a liability if you don’t take responsibility.

Stewardship is a covenant gateway to supernatural enthronement.

WHAT ARE THE PLATFORMS OF STEWARDSHIP?

(a). Prayer Stewardship

Prayer provides the software for a lifetime service. In Luke.2:37, we saw Hannah, at the age of 84, serving God with prayer and fasting in the temple day and night.

And she was a widow of about fourscore and served God with fastings and prayers night and day. (Luke.2:37)

You can’t travail in prayer and not prevail in life. Prayer means more that an avenue to place some burdensome demands on God. It’s a platform for spiritual stewardship the yield the most profitable returns.

You can engage in these prayers daily:

  • Pray for the advancement of God’s kingdom – (Mat.6:9/33)
  • Pray for souls to be saved from the dungeon of the wicked – (John.15:16)
  • Pray for the new converts to be established in faith and church
  • Pray for the nation(s)
  • Pray for the safety your pastors and his families
  • Pray for the increase of God’s word
  • Pray for the flow of more spiritual contents on this blog
  • Pray for the destruction of all satanic manipulations against the conviction and conversion of the unsaved.
  • For for the release of God’s wisdom and boldness for everyone on the go for Christ.
  • Pray for the release of reaper angel to reap thoroughly with his sharp sickle all souls that ordained for eternal life
  • Pray for your family, friends and neighbours to be blessed.
  • Pray for your church members to obey God’s instructions to the end.

Anytime you prayed for someone, the prayer answers back to you. See your prayer as a spiritual seed that will bring forth its returns in due season.

Kingdom focused prayer will cause what others are running after to be running after you. God will add to you the things that others are dying to get.

(b). Soul Winning Stewardship

Soul winning is another type of spiritual stewardship that yield the greatest returns. Soul winning isn’t talent neither a gift. It’s a mandate for every believer.

Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: whatsoever ye shall ask of the father in my name, he may give it to you. (John.15:16)

God sent Jesus to be great, so also, Jesus sent you to be great – through the platform of soul winning (Luke.1:32/John.20:21). Your job is to compel them to come by all means.

(c). Financial Stewardship

Here is another great platform for anyone who is interested in financial prosperity. You can engage in this platform by using your money to serve God. God’s primary interest is to save the lost. You might have noticed this in “the lords prayer” “….thy kingdom come… (Mat.6:9/33).” The kingdom of God was placed with high premium before the consideration of necessities. The kingdom is God’s utmost interest. Anything that touches a soul hunter touches God.

You can give out your money to ministries for the purpose of:

  • Printing evangelical materials
  • Buying buses for bringing people to church (Or giving out your vehicle for evangelism purpose)
  • Building a synagogue or completing some uncompleted churches in your locality.
  • Paying your tithe and offering on a constant basis.
  • Helping the poor and needy
  • Promoting blogs that propagate the gospel

For the records, we are not in need in our blogging ministries (if God needs help you’re the least person He will consult). Any seed you see as a donation is a waste. Your seed is what God use to meet your need – that is the spiritual implication if your seed.

Get this straight: there is no prayer and fasting for prosperity. Financial prosperity answers to the law of seed and harvest time – giving and receiving. If you’re not an excited giver you’ll die poor.

While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease (Gen.8:22)

(d). In-Service

This is another great opportunity to serve God by serving in His vineyard. You can join one or many service units in your local church. Here are some active service units that you can join:

  • Ushering unit
  • Protocol unit
  • Sanctuary keepers unit
  • Security unit
  • Choir unit
  • Media unit

And many more units depending on the structure of your local church.

It baffles me sometimes the way many still believe that Christianity is a passive religion. Those who think so are under strong illusion and that explain their predicaments.

Understand this, every opportunity to serve God is an opportunity to get blessed. God is not a user of men, you’re not working for God but with Him.

Carry a reward mentality as your plug into stewardship (Rev.22:12)

Be expectant and let your engagement be mixed with faith. Here are some of the benefits you should expect as you serve God this year:

  • Freedom from sickness (Ex.23:25)
  • Financial prosperity (Job.36:11)
  • Long life (Ex.23:26)
  • Fruitfulness (Ex.23:26)
  • Supernatural blessings (Deu.28:1-3)
  • Business breakthrough (PSM.92:10)
  • Higher dimension of spiritual authority (Eph.1:21)
  • Divine health and wholeness (Mat.8:17)
  • Marital settlement (PSM.68:6)
  • Miracle job (Is.3:10)
  • Divine strength (PSM.84:7)

Final Thoughts

Brethren, be God greedy. When you are God greedy, you will desire everything that serving God offers and that will make obedience to His instructions to become a thing of delight to you. God has not called you to meditate on your problems but to meditate on His words and your success will follow (Jos.1:8).

UNDERSTANDING STEWARDSHIP


Understanding stewardship

Biblical stewardship is one of the primary ways God calls us to live our life.

It’s a theme in the Bible we can trace from Genesis to Revelation. It’s a calling rooted in creation, highlighted throughout the Bible, and influences the way we live our life for the glory of God.
In this teaching, we are going answer some common questions and highlight the big themes of what it means to be a steward, including:

  •  What is the definition of stewardship in the Bible?
  • Bible verses about stewardship.
  • Examples of stewardship in the Bible.

Before we dive into Bible verses about stewardship, let’s start by defining what it means to be a steward.

What is the definition of stewardship in the Bible?

Has someone ever asked you to watch their kids? Are you responsible for managing an office or people on behalf of an employer? Do you have a financial advisor overseeing your investments?
If you answered yes to any of these three questions, then you are or have been a steward.

In general, to steward is to manage something on someone’s behalf. Whether a family member, friend, or employer asks you to watch over something, then you are stewarding or managing whatever they entrusted to your care.

In the Bible, stewardship is another way of talking about how you live your life. In the New Testament, the word “steward” is rooted in the Greek word “oikonomos,” which means “the manager of a household.”

If you were a steward in Ancient Greek culture, you were not the owner of the house. Instead you would have been the manager of the house and the household affairs. From making sure the home was clean to managing the finances and perhaps servants, you would have managed everything on behalf of the owner.

In light of Bible verses about stewardship, we will see that our life is not our own. Our life is on loan from God regardless if you acknowledge this or not and God calls us to steward everything about our life for his glory and the good of others.

To help us see the duties of a steward in the Bible, let’s look at some Biblical texts on stewardship that will give us a better idea of what biblical stewardship means.
