Topic: Faithfulness: The Habitation of The Blessing
SCRIPTURE: A faithful man shall abound with blessings: but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent. Proverbs 28:20
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: A faithful Christian will see more favour with God than an unfaithful Christian.
MESSAGE: Faithfulness means undivided loyalty and submission, absolute commitment, consistency of character, trustworthiness or dependability. It also means performance according to expectation.
Faithfulness is one of the rarest virtues on the face of the earth (Proverbs 20:26). Nevertheless, the truth is, there are faithful men (Daniel 6:4). It is important to know that faithfulness is one of the most rewarding virtues on earth. A faithful wife will get more favour from her husband than an unfaithful wife. A faithful Christian will see more favour with God than an unfaithful Christian.
It is also important to know that the pain of unfaithfulness is one of the worst pains on earth. When a man or woman discovers that his/her spouse is unfaithful, the pain of it is indescribably unbearable. That shall never be your portion in Jesus’ Name.
Now, our anchor scripture has made us to understand that a faithful man or woman will abound with the blessing. Therefore, if you want to abound with the blessing, be faithful in doing the following:
1. Your devotion to God; studying of the Bible, prayers, etc.
2. Your giving; tithing, offering, touching lives positively. Your giving is a proof of your love to God (John 3:16).
3. Evangelism – soul winning.
4. Kingdom service. Do not just sit in church doing nothing.
5. Your duty.
6. Your spouse. Any man or woman who is not faithful to his/her spouse is cursed.
7. Your calling. Be faithful to your assignment in God.
To be blessed is to be empowered to succeed. A blessed person cannot be resisted by the devil; he cannot be cursed, and faithfulness is a major key to the blessing.
Remember this: A faithful Christian will see more favour with God than an unfaithful Christian.
1. Read today’s study again and take note of the things you need to be faithful in doing.
2. Remain faithful even when the devil or people give you reasons to be unfaithful.
