For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: – Isaiah 55:10
Someone must pay for the work of God to go forward. If stewards of God don’t pay for the work of God, then the work of God will be hindered or even left undone until other stewards pick up the baton and carry forth God’s will in the earth where others were unwilling.
Believers are to be stewards for God for two reasons: 1. God needs His work financed in this earth realm and 2. God knows He can’t bless you like He wants to unless you sow seed. The sower has to plant the seed before he becomes the eater.
Many times God has entrusted a degree of wealth to stewards, who then wasted every dime on themselves and forgot to sow. This will tie God’s hands in your life where He cannot continue to bless you like He wants. When God makes a financial deposit into your life, He expects you to be His treasurer so that He can call on you anytime to give what He wants you to give. When you do this, God will always give you enough to enjoy life with.
Stewardship starts with what you have and where you are now. As you continue to prove your stewardship to God, He will increase you more and more.
