Stewardship: A Rewarding Service’s Platform


A rewarding platform of service

Stewardship is a platform of service where blessings and privileges are released to the faithful and obedient servant.

Matthew 25:21 KJV

“His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.”

Types of stewardship

In my list, there are three types of stewardship. Some are spiritual where some are financial in nature. However, all types of stewardship are very important.

A). Spiritual stewardship B). Financial Stewardship C). In – Service

 What is spiritual Stewardship?

The spiritual Stewardship worship is a spiritual platform of service such as: Kingdom advancement prayer, prayer and fasting, etc

This is the most important platform of stewardship that yield the greatest rewards

I believe will are no longer ignorant of what kingdom advancement prayer means.

However, if we still have somebody still  wondering what kingdom advancement prayer means, I’ll give him/her a brief definition here.

Kingdom advancement prayer is a platform of stewardship where saved humans intercede on behalf of others (the unsaved humans) in order to be rescued. This is cardinal part of our rescue mission strategy (Mat.6:6/9/33).

In my previous post  about obedience I mentioned about kingdom advancement prayer there, you might want to take a look.

In the book of Mat.6:6, God ordered us to pray secretly and promised to reward us openly, in vs 9, He placed high premium on His kingdom (in the lord’s prayer) & in verse 33, He ordered us to seek His kingdom first before every other thing can flow naturally in the form of additions.

In the book of Lk.2:37, we saw a widow(Hannah) at 84years of age who served God with prayer and fasting in the temple day and night.

Understand this: Prayer is one of the most cheapest way to serve God and service is the condition for all the rewards of God. Hence, get enlisted.

Soul winning is also a spiritual Stewardship. The pursuit after souls is not an ambition, not a gift neither a talent. It is a commandment more than anything else. This mandate has become a mandate for everyone believer to follow. There is nothing like i don’t have the gift of soul winning as many Christians would say today.

Jeremiah 1:5 KJV
“Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.”

Luke 10:2-4 KJV
“Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest. [3] Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves. [4] Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and salute no man by the way.”

What is Financial stewardship? 

This is an opportunity to serve God in monetary terms. The platform of thiting and offerings, sacrificial offering, vows, kingdom advancement project funding, and giving to the poor fall into this category

Luke 6:38 KJV
“Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.”

Understand this: financial prosperity doesn’t answers to fasting, there is no amount of fasting that you will fast that will make you to become rich. God prosperity plan answers to giving by acknowledging God with the ten part of your earnings.

Deuteronomy 8:18 KJV
“But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.”

Get this straight: any seed that you sow as a donation is a waste. Your seed is spiritual transaction between humanity and divinity. God needs your seeds in order to meet your needs.

What is In-Service?

In-service like Ushering, choiring, Hospitality, sanctuary keeping and the likes. This has to with your active engagement in one service’s unit or the other in the house of God.

Beware, In-service can lead to hypocrisy. There are people who come to church on Sunday’s just to show off their new bought or borrowed materials.

However, In-service has it own rewards as it’s not good to be a bench warmer in the church. whatever your hand find so doing, do it wholeheartedly.

What are the benefits of stewardship?

Every opportunity to serve God is an opportunity to get blessed. God does not use people, He blesses people. You are not working for God, you’re working with God,  you are partnering with God. You need to Change your mentality if you must experience the miraculous on every side while you’re on the platform of service.

In a partnership business, every active partner is entitled to a dividend. You can’t work with God and not receive the dividend of service. We are shareholders in this kingdom.

Revelation 22:12 KJV
“And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.”

God has never has the seed of Jacob to seek Him in vain (Is.45:19).

Paul planted, Apollos watered but God gave the increase.. Meaning that, some people are interceding on behalf of the unsaved while some are on the field bringing in the harvest to Christ and both are still working towards the same purpose.

1 Corinthians 3:6 KJV
“I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.”

Hear this: Service is your surest insurance against all satanic affliction of sicknesses and diseases.

Exodus 23:25 KJV
“And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.”

Service is your cardinal bail out from a wretched, pitiful, and poverty in every sphere of existence.

Job 36:11 KJV
“If they obey and serve him , they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures.”

What more?

Serving God guarantees your longevity. Ex.23:27

Serving God secures your access to fruitfulness Ex.23:25-27. Serving God through the instrumentality of faith is the key to all your expectations’ manifestations.

OBEDIENCE - The pathway to supernatural rewards

CONTINUES..

2). It  guarantees divine health and vitality

Exodus 23:25 KJV
“And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.”

A time came that I was still in school, they said that I have typhoid and they gave me plenty of drugs to live on. I said to myself I can never have it, Jesus already took it, He took my place in sicknesses, diseases, pains and bruises on the cross.

And, as a matter of truth Jesus had been healing people long enough, even before the doctor started schooling. Therefore, I disposed all the drugs given to me. That’s was the end of it, typhoid gone and never to return, I have been free since then. Today, I’m the healthiest person on the planet.

Matthew 8:17 KJV
“That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.”

Hear this: faith is not a risk, doubt is a big risk.  Your trust in God will go a long way to bail you out from the torments and afflictions of the devil.

3). Financial Prosperity – All through my school days, I had been pursing after God’s interest, being faithful to my thites and offerings and yet I did not lack anything..I spent closed/over to a million for school fees, feeding, rent and transport. There was no strain in me at getting the money. I enjoyed divine favour on every side.

God can give you wealth but you must acknowledge Him with your thites and other giving platforms. Dive into the covenant of seed time and harvest, giving and receiving and poverty will no longer be your neighbour.

Deuteronomy 8:18 KJV
“But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.”

Job 36:11 KJV
“If they obey and serve him , they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasure.”

4). Open rewards – Seeking after the number one interest of God, which is the lives of the unsaved souls – both on the prayer altar and harvest field –  enhances open rewards (Mat.6:6/9, Jn.15:16)

Matthew 6:33 KJV
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

Other scriptural references: Is.45:19, Rev.22:12

God’s Prosperity Plan


The physical approach to God's prosperity plan

 What are the physical approach to God’s Prosperity Plan for Us?

I). Desire work – Work is good. Laziness is the mother of poverty. Find something to do – even if it is small. Jesus hates idleness.

When He went out in the third hour & saw some people standing idle at the market place, likewise in the sixth and ninth hour. In the eleventh hour when He met them still standing idle, He questioned them. That tells us that He hates idleness.

Matthew 20:3-6 KJV
And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace, [4] And said unto them; Go ye also into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will give you. And they went their way. [5] Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise. [6] And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing idle, and saith unto them, Why stand ye here all the day idle?

2). Don’t despise little – Every great success’ story started small. Coming to God’s presence without a job is like coming to receive a blessing without a container. Your work is a blessing in disguise

Psalm 92:12 KJV
The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.

It’s my prayer that little business of yours will boom at the instance of the light in the word of God. Your crawling business will crawl no more. In the name of Jesus

3). Build capacity – Understand this: God can’t entrust to you beyond your capacity level. Get yourself equipped with skills, trade and apprenticeship. Educate yourself and improve on a daily basis. The truth is that you even need skills to do the work of righteousness

Hebrews 5:13 KJV
For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.

4). Be discipline – Hear this: There are no record breakers in their comfort zones – breaking records require stretching out of your comfortable arena. Until you bear the scars don’t expect to be stars.

As a business man having a TV box in your office will cause a lot of distractions and might end you up in a business failure due to lack of focus. As a student you can’t have exams the following day and watch Aljazeera, BBC and Africa Magic on the eve. If you do so you might be writing a letter to a failure. The subject discipline is very vital in all fields of life

Hebrews 12:12 KJV
Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees;

4). Think Big – Get this straight: you’re what you think.

Proverbs 23:7 KJV
For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.

Don’t limit God. Move out of the box. With God there is nothing that is impossible.

Give up the poverty mentality – don’t mistake your condition for your portion. Your condition is not your portion.  Think like true sons/daughters of your father. As long as ‘like’ beget ‘like’ sons and daughters of God are gods.

3 John 1:2 KJV
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

Jeremiah 29:11 KJV
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord , thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

According to Dr.Ben.Carson THINK BIG means

T for Talent/Time
H for Hope
I for Insight
N for Nice
K for Knowledge
B for Books
I for In depth learning
G for God

(If you want details on this – I will send you a link where you can get them)

5). Avoid negative habits as oversleeping, overfeeding, ‘overgisting,’ ‘overphoning’ ‘overbrowsing’ etc

Ever since mobile phone came many have run into madness. Since then we have been seen people using many phones with many sim cards at the same time. They carelessly get involved in unnecessary calls and chats all day long. Many destinies have been
rubbed off as a result of this. Not as if using a mobile device is bad. But, we must control the way we use them.

It is noteworthy that spirituality is the backbone of life. Every natural happening has it’s supernatural antecedent. This teaching might not be completed if I don’t discuss the place of spirituality

Get yourself equipped with knowledge of God’s word by reading books like the bible spiritual books on financial prosperity, listen to tapes of God’s anointed men. Daniel understood by books, Paul was a strong advocate of knowledge, Jesus had reading culture during His earthly ministry. Knowledge is priceless. It’s the key to liberty and dominion

Daniel 9:2 KJV
In the first year of his reign I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem.

Luke 4:16 KJV
And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read.

2 Timothy 2:15 KJV
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Mysteries of financial prosperity


God's prosperity plan for His children

There is no short cut to financial prosperity. If you do money ritual you will run mad. If you commit fraud you won’t have peace

Haggai 2:8 KJV
The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the Lord of hosts.

Proverbs 10:22 KJV
The blessing of the Lord , it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.

It sounds unfair.

Financial prosperity is a mystery of the kingdom that works. God entrusts this mystery to those that fear Him – those that fear God are those that obey His commandments

Psalm 25:14 KJV
The secret of the Lord is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.

John 14:21 KJV
He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

There are two approaches towards financial prosperity

a). The spiritual approach
b). The physical approach

The Spiritual approach

a). The force of love
b). The force of sacrifice
c). The force of faith
d). The force of righteousness

The physical approach

a). Desire work
b). The force of discipline
c). Think big
d). Avoid/unlearnt negative habits – oversleeping, overfeeding etc

Today we will not surpass the scope of the spiritual aspect

Spiritual Approach

a). The force of love – There is nothing mystical about love. Simply put love as the combination of what we receive, believe and obey.

John 14:21 KJV
He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

Love is a vital button that you need to press to operate in the realm of financial empowerment.

Get drunk/intoxicated with the wine of love and you will never be recovered from supernatural order of wealth

Obedience is the cardinal mark of love that guarantees prosperity in your finances

Job 36:11 KJV
If they obey and serve him , they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures.

b). The force of sacrifice – Solomon loved God and sacrificed the largest burnt offerings in history. No wonder he is still the richest person that ever liveth

1 Kings 3:4 KJV
And the king went to Gibeon to sacrifice there; for that was the great high place: a thousand burnt offerings did Solomon offer upon that altar.

1 Kings 9:25 KJV
And three times in a year did Solomon offer burnt offerings and peace offerings upon the altar which he built unto the Lord , and he burnt incense upon the altar that was before the Lord . So he finished the house.

The men of old knew this secret and that is why they were blessed. They need not to be coerced before demonstrating the act of love. There are prices to be paid

 

mysteries of financial prosperity

c). The force of righteousness – Let us take job as a case study

Job 1:1-3 KJV
There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil. [2] And there were born unto him seven sons and three daughters. [3] His substance also was seven thousand sheep, and three thousand camels, and five hundred yoke of oxen, and five hundred she asses, and a very great household; so that this man was the greatest of all the men of the east.

In verse 3 of that scripture we saw that job was the greatest of man in the east ( he had the biggest networth of wealth)

But, what was responsible for job never – end – well amount of wealth?🤔

In verse 1, the scriptures pointed out that job was perfect and upright. He fear God and hates evil. Therefore, the fear of God is the key to supernatural wealth. Those who fear God are those who do His will

Brethren, God is the lifter and builder of men. Since the days of Patriarchal until now. All those who have reigned in life are men who fear God – men after God’s own heart

d). The force of faith – Faith is seeing the invincible and believing the impossible

Hebrews 11:1 KJV
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Even if you are doing it & that element of faith is still missing it won’t work.

Understand that both our words and thoughts must be in agreement. Whatever you think and declare you’re empowered yo become

Proverbs 18:21 KJV
Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

Proverbs 23:7 KJV
For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.

Your mouth is your destiny moulder and your mind can either make you or break you

If God who is our father think and declared positively, then you and I have no choice then to follow the same patterns

Jeremiah 29:11 KJV
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord , thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

3 John 1:2 KJV
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

A time came there was darkness in the world and God called out light when change of situation was needed. Follow the same pattern. Speak to the mountain of poverty and it would be made plain

Understand this: the gospel of Jesus Christ has zero tolerance for poverty.

Luke 4:18 KJV

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,

From the scripture above. The spirit of the lord was upon Jesus first to preach the gospel to the poor

You will disappoint Jesus of you die poor. That’s why I’m charging you tofay to put up a fight tonight

Psalm 35:27 KJV
Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the Lord be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.

1 Timothy 6:12 KJV
Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

Furthermore on the force of sacrifice – when God told Solomon to request (something that many of us would be thrilled to hear) he requests for what we benefit the people of the land

Until you pay the price of sacrifice financial prosperity is farfetched

More on the force of faith – Many of us want ‘Abrahamic’ blessings but possess the faith of Thomas. Life can’t be beautiful than your faith’s level.

Questions and suggestions are welcomed.

The gateway to financial fruitfulness


The gateway to financial fruitfulness

Spiritual implication of your seed

Get this straight: any seed this you sow as a donation is a waste.

Your seed is not a contribution/donation it’s what God use to meet your need.

Lastly, God will not say thank you for doing anything; he blesses you in return

He doesn’t need your money. He is big enough that He has no space to accommodate anything

He owns you and the universe and all that are in it.

Psalm 50:10-12 KJV
For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills. [11] I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are mine. [12] If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof.

Your seed is your bailout in the hard and perilous times

Contribution from Funmi Ilesanmi

We must not be ignorant of the devices of the devil……
There is need to understand that the Will of God for His people is Prosperity, so we must live in believe & in authority of this not accepting fate of Poverty or lack

Also, Prayer is highly important! Need to pray against fruitless effort demonic power

Seed Time Harvest is the promise of God in Genesis 8: 22…..in whatever Self Sacrifice(as being righteous, taking responsibilities in faithfulness to tithe, offering, giving & many more); there can always be TIMING to HARVEST while God is ever faithful if we faint not in SOWING

The gateway to financial fruitfulness


The gateway to financial fruitfulness

Why are people in financial bondages?

B). Disobedience to the commandment/demand of righteousness – Hear this truth: Righteousness is the key to business breakthrough (This is a secret)

Psalm 92:12 KJV
The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.

Psalm 1:1-3 KJV
Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. [2] But his delight is in the law of the Lord ; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. [3] And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

Jesus is our perfect example. Any attitude can that Jesus does not possess, drop it. It’s my prayer an end has come to the attitude of stealing, bribery, embezzlement, adultery, formication, drinking, smoking, etc

Until you become righteous after the order of Jesus, financial blessings is not in view

C). Disobedience to the supernatural law of giving – The natural man’s law states a bird at hand is worth than two in the bush reversal is the case as far as supernatural law is concerned.

On the contrary, the supernatural law states that you must give what you have before you can have more than enough

Like my common saying, if you’re not an excited giver you will die poor irrespective of your involvement in church, age, title, colour or position notwithstanding.

Poverty will dog you all the way

Luke 6:38 KJV
Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.

D). Disobedience to the instruction to give to the poor- Giving to the poor is like lending to the Lord and health this also facilitates answered prayers.

Psalm 50:14-15 KJV
Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay thy vows unto the most High: [15] And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.

There are many people suffering in God’s vineyard. If you’re in the position to render a help, help!

Galatians 6:10 KJV
As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men , especially unto them who are of the household of faith.

E). Lack of engagement in the kingdom advancement sacrificial giving – This type of giving are as building of a temple for Christ, funding the printing of tracks and fliers, or funding the purchase of church materials and instruments

Haggai 1:1-11 KJV
In the second year of Darius the king, in the sixth month, in the first day of the month, came the word of the Lord by Haggai the prophet unto Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, saying, [2] Thus speaketh the Lord of hosts, saying, This people say, The time is not come, the time that the Lord’s house should be built. [3] Then came the word of the Lord by Haggai the prophet, saying, [4] Is it time for you, O ye, to dwell in your cieled houses, and this house lie waste? [5] Now therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts; Consider your ways. [6] Ye have sown much, and bring in little; ye eat, but ye have not enough; ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; ye clothe you, but there is none warm; and he that earneth wages earneth wages to put it into a bag with holes. [7] Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Consider your ways. [8] Go up to the mountain, and bring wood, and build the house; and I will take pleasure in it, and I will be glorified, saith the Lord . [9] Ye looked for much, and, lo, it came to little; and when ye brought it home, I did blow upon it. Why? saith the Lord of hosts. Because of mine house that is waste, and ye run every man unto his own house. [10] Therefore the heaven over you is stayed from dew, and the earth is stayed from her fruit. [11] And I called for a drought upon the land, and upon the mountains, and upon the corn, and upon the new wine, and upon the oil, and upon that which the ground bringeth forth, and upon men, and upon cattle, and upon all the labour of the hands.

The gateway to financial fruitfulness


The gateway to financial fruitfulness

Onto the teaching…

First understand that curses are not limited to generational curse alone. In the same vein, barrenness is not limited to the fruit of the womb.

The truth is that a fellow can be cursed or barrened financially – it goes beyond fianances as well (this cut across all realms of existence)

Wait a minute, any ugly or unwanted situation that has been hanging or lingering around for a long time is a curse.

Psalm 30:5 KJV
For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

Enough is enough to shame and reproach. This is why I would like you to take an angry look at that unwanted situation and tell it to disappear.

Whatsoever you can’t despise you can’t dominate

Mark 11:23 KJV
For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

Luke 21:15 KJV
For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.

Your mouth is your destiny moulder

Get ready to put up a fight. The scriptures says that *fight the good fight of faith

Reasons many are still under financial curses and bondages

A). Non-thiting disease – there is a disease called the non-thiting disease it’s the major root of all financial misfortunes.

Malachi 3:7-10 KJV
Even from the days of your fathers ye are gone away from mine ordinances, and have not kept them . Return unto me, and I will return unto you, saith the Lord of hosts. But ye said, Wherein shall we return? [8] Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings. [9] Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation. [10] Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it .

In blessings God will bless you; in multiplication God will multiply you. Our God is a God of addition and multiplication

Matthew 6:33 KJV
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Jeremiah 30:19 KJV
And out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of them that make merry: and I will multiply them, and they shall not be few; I will also glorify them, and they shall not be small.

But, you must not forget to acknowledge Him with the 10 parts of your earnings (both gross and net).

Understand that financial empowerment doesn’t answers to prayer nor fasting. Rather, it answers to the the law of giving and receiving; seed and harvest time

Deuteronomy 8:18 KJV
But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.
